Students at Cordeaux Academy Sixth Form have celebrated another year of excellent results today - with a 100 per cent pass rate for students studying Level 3 Applied General, Technical, and A-level courses.

There has been an increase in applications to university this year, with just under a third of students opting for Higher Education. All students have achieved sufficient points in their main subjects to meet their first choice of university.

The highest achieving female student was Emma Rayiru (A*A*A) who will take up a place at university to study psychotherapy, and the highest achieving male student was Matthew Mansey (A*A*B) who is aiming to follow in his grandfather’s footsteps and become a PE teacher after taking up his degree place at Leeds Beckett University.

Jenny Moss secured A*A*C - a particularly remarkable achievement, as she underwent open heart surgery during Year 13 yet still completed her course. A delighted Jenny is aiming to eventually enter the film industry as a make-up artist.

Meanwhile, Maisie Adlard achieved a remarkable grade B, having completed her entire A-level English Language course in just one year, after joining the Academy last September.

Top grades of A*-B were achieved by over 50 per cent of students, with 87 per cent achieving A*-C; a year on year upward trend.

Academy Principal Patrick Daley said: “Our students have had a really good set of results; we are really pleased with them.

“In essence we got a 100 per cent pass rate across all the qualification platforms - you can’t ask for better than that really!”

The Academy has many Level One and Level Two students studying on vocational courses in both Motor Vehicle and Construction, who also celebrated with excellent success rates. A number of students are already taking up apprenticeships locally, or are signing up for the next level as full time students.

Cordeaux Academy has a few places left for September, and anyone wishing further information should email: adavy@cordeauxacademy.org
