Students from Kettering Science Academy are celebrating a 96 per cent pass rate for their A-Levels.

Academy principal Martin Campbell said: “We’re delighted with the increasing number of students gaining A-Levels, particularly those achieving three or more passes.

“The overall pass rate is still high at 96 per cent, with many exceptional performances from students achieving their target grades.”

The success stories include Courtney Morson, who achieved three Bs in biology, chemistry and history.

She is going on to Sheffield Hallam University to study human biology.

She said: “When I got my results I thought the two years of hard work was worth it.

“I’m really excited about starting my course and I’m looking forward to the independence of university life.”

She added: “I wouldn’t have wanted to tell anyone if I didn’t get my grades.

“I was nervous, but now I’m looking forward to starting next month. I can’t wait for freshers week.”

Adele Northern gained three Bs in politics, history and biology and will be studying history at university in September.

Naomi Entiriwaa achieved an A in A-Level Dutch, a C in business and a distinction star in ICT.

She said: “I’m excited and relieved at the same time.

“It was hard work but if you put the effort in, it can go well.

“It’s been a good two years.”
