Rushden Academy is pleased to announce that the hard work of the year 11 students this year has produced results to be proud of.

The number of pupils that achieved A and A* grades with last week’s results continues to rise.

Special congratulations go to Zachary Spavins Hicks who gained 11 A*s and one A grade.

Other students with excellent results included Molly McGelliot with nine A* to A grades, Alice Plater, Thembi Chihambakwe and Lauren Montgmery got eight A* to A grades, and Jessica Renew and Ben Strong received six A* to A grades.

Students at the academy continue to demonstrate excellence in individual subjects with a significant number achieving A and A* grades in Further Maths and Statistics as well as an extremely high proportion of A and A* in drama.

The school is also celebrating excellence in its vocational subjects and is delighted that so many of the students have met and exceeded targets in different areas of the curriculum including health and social care and hair and beauty.

A spokesman for the school said: “We look forward to welcoming many of our students into The East Northamptonshire College for their sixth form studies and wish those who will be continuing their education and training with other providers every success for the future.

“Well done to all our Rushden students from all the staff, governors and The Education Fellowship.”
