Students at Holgate Academy in Hucknall, part of the Diverse Academies Learning Partnership, were celebrating this morning as they received their A-Level grades. Students’ hard work really paid off, with 4% of students gaining A*- A grades, 32% gaining A*- B grades, and 95% receiving a pass grade. 65% of students who took vocational qualifications also received a distinction* or distinction. The positive results showed an improvement in all areas from last year’s performance, highlighting the superb efforts of this year group.
Since September 2016, students have been undertaking their studies at the Hucknall Sixth Form Centre, alongside peers from partner academies, National Church of England Academy and Queen Elizabeth’s Academy. Students were in great spirits as they opened their results, with great individual success meaning many individuals would be moving on to university, employment and apprenticeships.
Sue Forsey, principal, joined students as they received their results and said; “We are really pleased with our key stage 5 results this year – these continue to improve year on year. Our pass rate has increased to 95% with 33% of our students achieving the higher grades. We would like to congratulate all of our year 13 students on their success and wish them good luck with the next phase of their studies or chosen career pathway. Particular mentions must go to Fynn Lithgow who achieved A*,A,B,B and Kira Spooner also did superbly well, achieving A,B,B,B - she will go on to university to study a degree in psychology.”
