Our hardworking students were celebrating their well deserved GCSE results success today (24 August).

Many will now go on to study A levels at Hucknall Sixth Form Centre (also part of the Diverse Academies Trust), with others choosing a variety of pathways including routes into training or apprenticeships.

Molly achieved a great set of results with a grade 9 in history and grade 8s in maths, chemistry and art; and grade 7s in English language, English literature, biology, physics and French. She will now go on to study A levels in maths, history and English literature at Hucknall Sixth Form Centre.

Molly said: “Wow, I’m so pleased! I am really looking forward to starting at Hucknall Sixth Form in September.”

Another student equally delighted with their results was Holly, who achieved grade 8s in chemistry, physics and geography; grade 7s in maths, English language and French; grade 6s in English literature and biology, and a Distinction in business.

Holly will be continuing her studies at Hucknall Sixth Form and has chosen A levels in criminology, psychology and chemistry.

She commented: “Thank you so much. I am so pleased and cannot wait to start my A level studies.”

Jake was relieved and happy to have achieved a grade 7 in geography, grade 6 in English language; grade 5s in maths, English literature, biology, chemistry and physics; plus a Distinction* in physical education and a Merit in business.

He said: “I was a bit nervous this morning but am really happy with my grades!”

Jake will be joining Holly and Molly at Hucknall Sixth Form Centre next month (September). He will be studying A levels in geography, applied science and sport.

Head of The Holgate Academy, Henry Diamond, said: “We are incredibly proud to see so many of our students reaping the benefits of their hard work and commitment in today’s GCSE results.

“As they move on to the next chapter of their lives we would like to wish all our students every success for the future and are delighted that so many have chosen to continue their studies at the Hucknall Sixth Form Centre. We look forward to following their progress.”
