Exam Results

Our best ever examination results

This year has seen a marked increase in results, the best in the Academies history by a significant margin. The improvement is a result of tireless efforts by our students, teaching staff and leaders in the Academy, to not only teach and learn better in lessons but also to understand the requirements of new more challenging exam specifications in English and Maths particularly. Our Average Point score for this year group of 17.29 is among one of the lowest in the country which makes the achievements of our students even more outstanding.
