More students are off to top unis from Lodge Park this this time last year.
Students at the Corby school are celebrating another year of outstanding A-Level and vocational results.
Principal Alison Hayes said: “Last year the academy celebrated our best set of results in a generation, and the students who completed Year 13 and sat their exams this Summer matched the standards that were set.
“More students secured at least AAB in some of the most challenging subjects than ever before, and the numbers securing at least three A-Levels matched last year’s figures. The average grade for vocational subjects has risen to a Distinction +, as students got higher grades in more subjects.
“As a result, doors are opening for our young people. Nearly twice as many students have been offered places at Russell Group universities than in 2015, which are the country’s leading higher education institutions, and so many others have achieved what they need to go to the university or college of their choice.”
Among the smiling faces was Sinead Butler who achieved ABB and has secured a place reading English and Philosophy at the University of Nottingham.
Sinead said: “I am incredibly relieved and pleased after getting my results. It has been a long wait, but I cannot wait to get to university and meet loads of new people.”
In addition, Dean Mobbs will be reading English Language at the University of Birmingham and Wiktoria Penar secured outstanding grades to read Law in Manchester. Emma Johnson got a host of Distinction* grades to study Fashion Design and Sophie Savage got all As in her quest to study Philosophy, Politics and Economics in Leeds. Nathan Clark has secured a place at the University of Leicester and Lydia Rutherford is attending the University of St Andrews.
Wendy Marshall, Chief Executive of the David Ross Education Trust, said: “I would like to say a huge congratulations to Lodge Park’s students.
“They continually impress me with their hard work and determination and are a credit to the academy and their community.”
