Ced de la Croix, Headteacher, commented that “There is still much more we need to do but it is extremely pleasing to see from the results that the new Academy continues to move forward and has risen to the challenge of the new GCSEs. The students, parents and staff have all worked incredibly hard over the two years and they deserve this success.”
We are delighted with our A-Level results this year and are immensely proud of the achievements of all of our students. At a time when A-Level programmes nationally have been subject to significant change, our students and staff have had to work especially hard to return such good outcomes.
The achievements allow our students to follow the path of their choice, whether that be into higher education, apprenticeships or other further training. Individual successes particularly of note included Rachel Evans who achieved 3 As and will now go on to read Anthropology at London School of Economics, and Josh Galpin who achieved A*, A, B, who is planning to be reading Mathematics at University.
Ced de la Croix, Headteacher, commented that, “We are very proud of all our sixth form students and would like to congratulate them all on their achievements. This year, we have seen another shift in Year 13 students attaining the very high A* grades. Congratulations to all students and staff for the hard work that ensured this success!”
