Many subjects did exceptionally well, far exceeding national averages.

  • 100% of students studying A level English Literature achieved A*-B
  • 83% of students achieved an A*-B in A level mathematics.

In addition, History, Art, Science, Spanish and Music all achieved 100% A*-B grades.

All students have been offered, and have accepted, places at their first choice university.

Principal Claire Leitheiser, said:

"I am incredibly proud of all of the students who have received their results today. To see them achieve these grades, on top of all their other commitments and successes, is testimony to their hard work and to that of their teachers. They are role models for students lower down the academy and provide inspiration and motivation for the future. We thank all those who have supported these young people alongside the academy.
I wish all of our Sixth Form Leavers the very best - universities are lucky to have the pleasure of working with these amazing young people."
