SIXTH form students at Neale-Wade Academy have been rewarded with excellent results.
Principal Jason Wing said the results reflected the hard work of the students, commitment of the teaching staff and the support of parents.
Mr Wing said: “These results confirm that the academy is moving in the right direction. Students, staff and parents are committed to seeking excellence and we are raising aspirations from Year 7 through to Year 13.
“Following what has been two years of continued hard work by the sixth form students I am thrilled to see more students than ever achieving success.
“It is always rewarding to see our students progress, gaining the qualifications and skills they need to take the next steps in their lives, and this year is no exception with a large number of students gaining places at some of the country’s best universities including Nottingham, York and Leeds.
“Others have gained employment and further training opportunities. I wish them all the very best of luck.”
Nine out of ten students achieved 3 or more passes in the A-level examinations and more than a third of the passes were at either grade A or B.
Out of the 19 subjects that were delivered at Neale-Wade, 90 per cent achieved 100 per cent pass rates and 50 per cent of subjects had more than 75 per cent of students gaining A-C passes.
This is a significant improvement on last year’s results where 50 per cent of subjects achieved 100 per cent pass rate, said Mr Wing.
