Sixth Form students at Giles Academy are today celebrating after their hard work resulted in them achieving top grades needed to go onto undergraduate courses at university or into local industry.
Results are in line with teacher predictions. This means that results are technically better than last year’s which we are very happy with. Some subjects performed better than predicted, these include Business Studies and Computing.
Our top achiever this year is Casey Barker. Casey achieved a Distinction * in Health and Social Care and A grade in A Level Psychology. Casey also achieved B grade in the level 3 Extended Project Qualification. Casey joined us in Year 12 and has thoroughly enjoyed her time here at Giles. Casey is delighted with her impressive grades and is looking forward to reading BA Hons in Children, Young People and Females undergraduate course at York St John University.
Other top achievers are Sam Fisher and Ethan Witham. Sam achieved a Distinction grade in Business Studies and C grade in Psychology A level and a D grade in History. Ethan achieved a Distinction Merit in Health and Social Care and a Merit in Science. Both students are delighted with their achievements.
Megan Johnson achieved a Distinction in Health and Social Care, D and E grades in English and Psychology A Level. Megan is now looking forward to reading Psychology at De Montford University Leicester.
We would like to congratulate our Performing Arts students which achieved good grades and those students that will be furthering their studies at various stage schools and universities.
A special mention to Nathan Hunt and Hugh Cadle who achieved Merit grades in Computing Sciences. Hugh is going onto study Computing Science at Leeds Beckett University. Nathan is looking forward to undertaking an apprenticeship with us at Giles Academy within the Computing department.
Heads of Sixth Form, Sam Garrard and Alex Reed were keen to congratulate all the students on contributing to this first class set of results:
“All of the students should be congratulated on these outstanding results, they are a testament to everyone’s hard work throughout the year. Our students have successfully secured places either in higher or further education, apprenticeships or employment and we look forward to hearing about their future achievements”.
