Many of these students will be moving into Year 12 to study A level and BTEC courses at the Academy’s sixth form, which last week celebrated its A level results.

They will be joined by students from other schools in the area in what has been a bumper year for enrolment.

Mark Guest, headteacher, commented: "We are delighted that the hard work of our students has been fully reflected in this year’s outstanding results which break all records for our GCSE examination performance.

"These fantastic outcomes are a direct consequence of our students’ commitment and resilience, highly effective teaching from school staff and the valued support and encouragement from our families. This year group has raised the bar for what is possible and they have given themselves a wonderful platform from which to launch the next stage of their learning.

"We couldn’t be happier that so many of our students are choosing to continue that journey with us in our Sixth Form.”
