Emily Heaton will be moving on to a professional apprenticeship route leading towards primary school teaching, and Lewis Blakey will be doing a degree at Derby in Sports Coaching.

Director of Post 16 Studies Andrea Taylor said: “We are rightly proud of our students’ successes which are testament to the hard work and commitment of students and high-quality teaching.”

Outgoing Principal Peter Kubicki said: “Our developing ‘professional pathways’ model is growing in popularity and is providing students with valuable insights to the world of work and real opportunities to help them secure a bright future.

“The ground breaking Cordeaux Academy partnership with Gelder will have a profound influence on Louth area educational developments.”

Mr Kubicki added: “These grades reflect the developing distinctive expertise at Cordeaux Academy in developing business related and ‘professional pathways’ for young people in the Louth area.

“An exciting new education/business partnership with Gelder Education and Training will provide the basis for young people to achieve their potential.”

Congratulations to all students who received results this week.
