Many congratulations to all our Year 11 students who collected their results today. We are very proud of each of our students whose hard work really has paid off.
We are very proud to say that the top grades of A*/A were achieved in many subjects including: English Language and Literature, Maths, Further Maths, Science, Additional Science, Biology, Physics, Chemistry, Art, Business, Computer Science, Food Technology, French, Geography, History, Resistant Materials, RE, Spanish, Italian, Business and in BTEC subjects including Business Studies, Health and Social Care and Travel.
A record number of students not only reached their target grades but exceeded them. Of this we are very proud. A number of Year 11 students achieved straight A*/A results including in AS examination subjects which are usually taken in Year 12. The AS subjects taken were in languages and Mathematics. A further cohort of students achieved excellent results with a combination of A*/A/B/C grades.
Students achieved high grades in a full breadth of subjects from English to Computer Science, French to Geography. This means that they are able to choose from many different subjects to study at A Level here at the Academy.
Some students choose a more vocational curriculum and achieved outstanding results in BTEC Business Studies, Health and Social Care and Travel with many Distinction and Distinction* grades being achieved.
We are very pleased with the record numbers of students signing up to our Sixth Form to study a wide variety of Sixth Form courses. These include A Levels in Sciences, Mathematics, Geography, History and Business.
This year we also include a partnership course with the NAC Group linked with Nissan for a course in Automotive Mechanics with an A Level curriculum. This is a very exciting development for our Academy and our students.
Some students have also been accepted on apprenticeship courses in construction and mechanics – we wish these students well as they start their careers.
Congratulations to all our students on their success and their hard work and thanks to all parents/carers for all your support over the last five years. This has really paid off.
Another very proud day for the Joseph Swan Academy community.
