Corby Business Academy is celebrating another outstanding A Level Results Day.

Last year the school enjoyed one of its best ever A Level Results Days and this year it has gone on to achieve a 25 per cent increase in its A Level success rate and a rise in the number of students achieving the highest grades.

The figures reveal an improvement in grades across all subjects with particularly good results in A Level Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics, English and Media and Level 3 vocational qualifications in Business, Sport and Dance.

CBA Associate Principal Janet Duggan said: “Our success rate has improved and a number of our students have received A* grades in their subjects.

“These results are evidence of our high quality teaching and the ever increasing aspirations and ambitions of our students and their commitment to their studies. Our students are now able to take their next steps to higher education or the workplace.

“Yet again we have seen great results in our vocational subjects, including Business, Travel and Tourism, Health and Social Care, Dance and Sport.

“Our success in Business is particularly pleasing as we have strong links with the local business community.

“I am very proud of all our students and I am delighted for all those concerned.”
