Students at Corby Business Academy are celebrating one of the best A-level results days in the school’s history.

Today’s results show improvements across the board in the school’s A-level and Level 3 vocational qualifications.

The number of students obtaining A* to B grades has also increased significantly.

CBA executive principal John Henrys said: “This year we have seen a significant increase in the number of students achieving the highest grades and an increase in the students’ average point scores.

“These results are amongst the very best that we have achieved and they are testament to all the hard work that students and staff have invested in their subjects over the past two years.

“From the results I have seen I would expect that all our students will have met the requirements for their next steps be that a place at university, an apprenticeship or employment.”
