Damon Lewis, director of sixth form at The Voyager Academy, said: “The sixth form has always been a source of pride for The Voyager Academy. We are particularly proud to have improved the number of top grades our students are receiving and that improvements have come from both A-Level and BTEC Level 3 courses, showing we have a varied offer to suit all students.

“These results are a true reflection of the success of our new partnership with Thomas Deacon Education Trust (TDET) and provide us with a positive platform from which to start our new journey as Queen Katharine Academy in the new year.

“Congratulations to all of our students. We are very proud of all your hard work and wish you the best of luck for the future.”

The academy saw particularly notable achievements from Michael Delaney (AAB), Nidah Khan (AAB) and Kate Schneider, who received the highest possible grades in music technology, Performing Arts and media.
