A total of 73 per cent of students achieved three A* to E grades, up seven per cent on last year’s figure, with 30 per cent achieving three A* to C grades.

Principal Cheryl Hill said: “We were pleased with the results achieved by the cohort. They have made good progress from their starting points.

“The average grade for the Vocational subjects has increased from a Distinction last year to a Distinction star this year. Every student who wanted a university place achieved their first choice.

“I’m very proud of the students and staff with the efforts which have been put in. We are an academy which serves its community as we run an open 6th form which encourages both academic and vocational study.”
