SIXTH form students at the Skegness Academy have once again achieved a 100 per cent pass rate in their A2 and Level 3 equivalent courses, and more have achieved three or more A grades.

The students have not only maintained the perfect record set by their predecessors last year, the number picking up three As of more has risen from 25 per cent to 30 per cent.

Principal of The Skegness Academy, Kelvin Hornsby, said: “These performance figures are remarkable. The cohort in the sixth form was 25 per cent larger than last year and we are reporting our first set of full A2 results that include the subjects of English, mathematics, biology, psychology, sociology, history, film and media studies.

“The students in the sixth form have risen to the exceptionally high expectations we have of them at The Skegness Academy and they could not have done this without the high quality teaching and support they receive from their staff.

“Every single sixth form leaver is entering education, employment or training. This fact highlights the superb careers guidance available at The Skegness Academy. In addition he success of the current sixth form has had a shop window effect with numbers rising dramatically for the new academic year starting in September 2012.”

Barry Day, Chief Executive of the Greenwood Dale Foundation Trust, sponsor of The Skegness Academy, said: “When we opened The Skegness Academy in September 2010 we promised to significantly improve the results and life chances of pupils when compared to those of the predecessor St Clements College.

“Kelvin Hornsby and his team have done far more than that. They have totally transformed the standard of education to the highest of standards. I congratulate the pupils for their results and thank the staff for their loyalty, enthusiasm and hard work.”

The following students achieved three or more grade As – Abby Barber, Gemma Chambers, Shannon Connelly, Adam Elton, Carley Godson, Rebecca Hippey, Be Megan Parker, Katie Pringle, Luke Rayner-Mistry, Gyuler Tokil, Adam Wilkinson, Wilson, Melissa Parish, Lewis Symonds and Amelia Walmsley.

The Academy added that of special note was the performance of Ria Punyer, who achieved two grade As and the first A* at A2 academic level in psychology.
