Significant Rise In Number Of Sixth Formers Achieving Top Grades
Sixth Formers collecting their results today (Thursday, August 18th) are the first cohort to have completed both the full two years' study at CBA's Sixth Form and their GCSEs.
This year, 55% of students achieved As and Bs in Level 3 courses (A Levels and vocational subjects) - a significant improvement on last year's figure of 17%.
As well as some outstanding A Level results, students also excelled in vocational subjects. Success in the Academy's business specialism included 75% of students achieving a distinction (equivalent to an A at A Level) in BTEC Business. In almost all vocational subjects, CBA achieved significantly higher results than the previous national average for the number of distinctions achieved.
Individual successes include Joe Mills who was awarded two Bs in A Level Maths and Further Maths and is going to study Mathematics at Nottingham Trent University. He has been awarded a bursary and is being sponsored through university by the Horne Foundation.
Also celebrating is Ajet Durici, who achieved an A, B and C in A Level Maths, Further Maths and Physics.
Leah Haggart (pictured) was over the moon after being awarded three distinctions in BTEC Business, BTEC Travel and Tourism and BTEC Public Services.
Lincoln University is the destination for three students who achieved seven distinctions between them. Adele Bagnall will be studying Tourism Management, former Head Boy Chris Usher will be reading Advertising and Marketing and Danielle Wilson is planning on studying Criminology after taking some time out to go travelling.
Principal Andrew Campbell said: "These results are a clear indication of the ambition of CBA and what we have achieved in the three years since opening. These results are testament to the hard work and determination of students and their teachers. CBA is a school that has high expectations of its students and our first ever cohort of Sixth Formers have performed superbly."
