Academy’s Business Specialism Bears Fruit on Sixth Form Results Day

Corby Business Academy has proved it is flourishing as a centre for Business and Enterprise after a large number of Year 13 students gained vital qualifications in specialist work-related subjects this summer.

The additional support and help given through the Academy's specialism subjects of Business, Travel and Tourism and ICT has resulted in 100% success in these subject areas.


Avril Bartley-Smith, Vice Principal for Sixth Form, said: "I am especially pleased with the results for those students who arrived four years ago unable to speak English. Ernestas Bacevicius and Agnieszka Naturalna are off to study Advertising and Media Studies, with another student, Dzeneta Vainauskaite, going on to study International Business and Marketing."


In addition, Danny Welsh will study Accounting and Legal Studies at De Montfort University in Leicester and Jacquelene Tsiga, the Academy's first Head Girl, is going to study Business Studies at the same university after being awarded a B in Travel and Tourism and three Cs in Biology and Applied Business. She said: "I exceeded what I thought I was going to get so I'm really happy - it's much better than what I was expecting. I'm most proud of my Biology grades."


Luke Wardle is off to study architecture at Sheffield Hallam University after gaining an A in Business and a C in English. He said: "I'm pleased because I've got onto the course I wanted to do - all the work paid off."


Jade Marshall will be studying Biomedical Science at Essex University after achieving a B in Business and Cs in As Chemistry, Biology and Maths. She said: "I'm glad to have got into university and I'm really happy with my results."
