Record grades see all students secure place at first choice university
Our students are today celebrating excellent A Level and BTEC results – the fourth year of improvement in a row! The school is placed quite firmly at the top 1% of all schools nationally for the progress students make during their time there. This is the Value Added measure. Akeley continued to deliver an excellent teaching and learning programme, both online and in the classroom during Covid, matched by equally impressive pastoral care and support. Happy children are successful children!
71% of A Level grades were A* – B with 75% of BTEC results a Distinction or above. As you can imagine, we couldn’t be prouder of our Year 13 cohort. We achieved a 100% pass rate. The hard work of our teachers and students have ensured that our Value Added Score has improved for a fourth year in a row.
Mrs Dee-Andrew, Director of Sixth Form, said: “Huge congratulations to them, and to every student who performed over and above what was expected of them. We wish you every success in your chosen continued studies and can’t wait to hear all about your exciting next steps, wherever that may be. We couldn’t be prouder of you all!”
