Sixth form students at the Skegness Academy achieved a 100 per cent pass rate in their A-level exams and Level 3 equivalent courses of study, the school has said.

Sixty-five per cent of students achieved at least one A* or A grade.

The Academy said it was a particularly pleasing result because the improvements came despite more students sitting A-levels at the school compared to previous years.

Ian Corns, Principal, said: “This set of results is all down to the continued hard work of staffand students alike plus the increasingly rigorous management procedures put in place so asto ensure success.

“The Sixth Form at the Skegness Academy is growing rapidly, in fact it has more than doubled in size over the past two years, which is testament to our success.

“In addition, approximately £19 million has been invested in our buildings so that students have access to a high qualitylearning environment.

“My congratulations go to the Sixth Form team led by Mrs Silvester and supported by parents and students.

Skegness Academy is one of the 17 Academies sponsored by the Greenwood Dale Foundation Trust (GDFT).

Barry Day, Chief Executive of the GDFT, said: “Once again we areproud of the success of the pupils at the Skegness Academy and wish them all the best asthey continue their education or enter employment.”
