The Principal, John McParland, is very pleased with the overall achievement of his students in the Academy where students of all abilities are entered for a wide variety of subjects at A/AS Level, BTEC Level 3, City and Guilds and VTCT courses. Forty one students out of forty four who applied to university achieved their first choice university and 100% of the 68 students who sat A2 Level and Level 3 BTEC courses this year, achieved at least 1 A* - E grade.

Mr McParland was delighted that once again this year every single one of our students leaving the Academy is progressing to Higher and Further Education, or entering employment, training or taking up apprenticeships. He commented “our students have shown great dedication and commitment to their studies and thoroughly deserve their success and the highest praise for all their hard work. It is especially pleasing that 41 out of 44 of our students who applied to university obtained their first choice university place and will study subjects as diverse as Accounting and Finance, English Literature, Mathematics, History, Geography, Primary Education, Politics and International Relations, Adult Nursing, Computer Science, Civil Engineering and Music Journalism. Congratulations to all of our students and I wish them every success and happiness in the next phase of their education and career choice. I would also like to express my thanks to our dedicated teachers and support staff who have been a huge support to our students in helping them to reach their potential and to follow their dreams.”
