We are delighted to share the outcomes of our 2021 Academy A level and vocational examinations.

After 13 years of education, the students should feel exceptionally proud of their incredible achievements and the opportunities these will provide for their next steps.

- 87% of students have achieved a grade A* to C in their A level examinations, with 19 students achieving an average grade A or higher.

- 94% of students passed their vocational examinations, with 73% achieving a Merit or higher.

No other cohort of students has faced more disruption or challenge prior to taking A level examinations.  These results are testament to the hard work of students and their teachers who have worked tirelessly over the past two years.

These results cannot be held in comparison to any other year group due to a change in the how the assessments in 2021 were planned. However, the students’ commitment and effort are reflected in these outcomes and should be celebrated.

Head of Upper School, Mr Tony Shepherd said “Congratulations to all those students who have achieved so highly.  We are exceptionally proud of your achievements and what they mean for your future prospects. You should all feel incredibly proud of what you have achieved.”

These results mean that more Sixth Form students than ever before will be going on to University for higher education with over 90% receiving an offer from their first choice of University.

Six of our students have confirmed places from Russell Group Universities.

Mr McBeath, Principal, praised both students and staff for their hard work and effort.

“These results are an absolute credit to the students and the staff of the Academy. Over the past 18 months they have faced so many challenges and disruption to their learning.

Through the exceptional commitment of our teachers, we managed to deliver a full timetable through online learning which maintained the levels of education and study our students needed.

This cohort attended over 96% of lessons, in person and online this year, which gives some indication of their incredible attitude towards learning and their studies.

Today, the students and staff should celebrate. We are exceptionally proud of everything they have achieved.”
