Pupils at Alec Reed Academy celebrate excellent A Level results
At Alec Reed Academy, over 96% of students who followed an academic pathway achieved or exceeded their target grades and will progress to University course or apprenticeships from September. Almost 60% achieved A*-C grades and 25% of students gained grades A*-B. As a result of the high standards achieved across both the Primary and Secondary phases of the Academy, the number of students taking A Level courses at the Academy has more than doubled in recent years.
In the new BTEC Technical qualifications, 98% of students achieved Distinction-Pass grades. The Academy’s long-term success in the delivery of vocational courses has been maintained again this year despite the dramatic changes that have taken place in the way these courses are now assessed.
Gary Lobbett, Chief Executive of the Academy commented, ‘These are excellent results. It is so encouraging to see so many of our young people achieving their challenging personal targets and high aspirations. This success is the result of the dedication, commitment and hard work of staff, the positive attitudes of all students and the high level of support received from parents. I am very proud of all our students and of the teaching and support teams across the Academy who guide and encourage pupils throughout the year. Congratulations to everyone involved’.
