Key Information‎ > ‎


Greensward Academy is proud to announce our examination results for 2015-16.  The academy policy on examinations entries emphasises the opportunity for the students to enter examinations in all of those subjects they have been studying.  However, there is the obligation on students to complete all the requirements of the course in terms of continuous assessment tasks and coursework.  The academy believes that it is important that all students complete their courses and seek to fulfil their potential through public examinations.
