Exam Performance & Results

South Axholme Academy make their mark as a top 6th Form provider.

It’s been an “A”mazing set of results at South Axholme Academy with the very first A level results for the Isle. South Axholme Academy’s 6th Form celebrated in style with its first set of A level results placing them in the top 5% of schools nationally (based on 2016 figures). Sarah Sprack, Principal of the academy said “We are absolutely ecstatic with the A level results obtained by our first ever 6th form cohort. To be in the top 5% of post 16 providers nationally and to have a 100% pass rate with our first cohort of students is an exceptional feat. We were always quietly confident that our fantastic students and dedicated staff would do well, but these results exceed all expectations.”

When asked about the success of post 16 study at the academy, Paul Barratt, Chair of Directors of Isle Education Trust said “South Axholme is a traditional 6th form setting, with small classes and staff who really know their students. This sort of provision isn’t replicated anywhere locally and the personal approach along with highly favourable group sizes is a clear recipe for success. We firmly believe that South Axholme 6th Form should be the number one choice for post 16 study in the area. To have such outstanding results from our first cohort is down to the hard work of the students and amazing staff.”

Student Ben Dance who gained 3 A levels, 2 A*s and an A is now packing his bags ready to take up his place at Leeds to study Chemical Engineering.

Also celebrating were students Frankie Caseley (AAC), Abigail Atherton (BBB), Eleanor Cousins (ABB) and Charlie Thompson (BBC) all of whom are now off to their chosen universities.

Congratulations to all our 6th form students on a truly amazing set of results!
