Skegness Academy students are celebrating after receiving results for their A-level or equivalent courses of study.

This is the fourth consecutive year in which students have maintained a perfect 100 per cent pass rate.

Performance in vocational qualifications is exceptionally high. This year 88 per cent have achieved two or more vocational equivalents of A-levels with 54 per cent of students achieving three or more vocational equivalents of A-levels.

These figures are both above the national Post-16 results for 2013.

Some students had particular cause to celebrate:

- Chana Coy achieved a C in psychology, a C in sociology plus a merit in science (subsidiary diploma) and distinction in health and social care (subsidiary diploma).

- Olivia Bangham achieved a C in psychology, a C in sociology plus a distinction* in retail (subsidiary diploma) and a distinction* in health and social care (subsidiary diploma).

- Katie Medland achieved a B in sociology, a D in psychology plus a distinction* in retail (subsidiary diploma) and a Pass in Finance (subsidiary diploma).

- Victoria Sigsworth achieved a B in English, a D in history plus a distinction* in retail (subsidiary diploma).

- Oliver Sleber achieved a C in English, a C in film studies, a B in media studies plus a distinction in retail (subsidiary diploma) and a pass in public services (subsidiary diploma).

This year, more students than ever have applied to continue their education at university with many having secured unconditional offers.

Principal Elizabeth Silvester said: “This year’s results are a testament to the dedication, hard work and commitment of our students. Congratulations to all of them, their teachers and in particular Lara Oldfield, our Head of Sixth Form. Good luck to all of our leavers for the future.

“Everybody has a plan of action, everyone is going to university, further education into employment or training, so everyone has got something to move on to. Skegness Academy is one of the 24 Academies sponsored by the Greenwood Dale Foundation Trust (GDFT).”

Chief executive, Sir Barry Day, OBE, said: “Once again we are proud of the success of the pupils at the Skegness Academy and wish them all the best as they continue their education or enter employment.”
