The Academy’s Principal, Darren Luckhurst, was very impressed with the achievements of the Year 11 pupils.  Despite a disrupted and turbulent two years caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, our pupils have performed remarkably well.  Results overall show a continued improvement on 2019 and this bodes well for the future.


“I am delighted with the achievements of our pupils in their GCSE exams.  Headlines today should be about the pupils successes.  I am extremely proud of this year group, having demonstrated such resilience to achieve and do well in their examinations. 


“They remained focussed and determined to do well.  They did this with the support of our staff as well as each other.”


“I am also pleased that the pandemic has not disadvantaged Year 11 pupils in gaining chosen places, either in our sixth form or local colleges.”
