This was the first year of the new measures. The academy is particularly pleased to report impressive outcomes for students who were entered for the higher tier in Maths, 100% of whom achieved their targets and 50% of whom exceeded expectations.

Josh Llufrio-Elliott, who achieved grade 8s in English and Maths plus 3A*s, 2As and 2 Distinction*s, was delighted with his results. "I feel incredible", he said. "To get this from where I came from... I really didn’t expect this and I’m so pleased!" Kiaya Bailey gained ten strong grades and she, impressively, surpassed her targets in nine subjects.

Emma McArthur stated, "I feel relieved and overwhelmed. The five years of work were worth it!" Emily Humphries was celebrating her results and said: "I feel good!" Emma and Emily are looking to enrol at local grammar schools to study A levels.
