Particularly pleasing were the results for the Extended Project, in which over 70 per cent of the students gained A*- B passes, and Further Maths, in which 83 per cent of the grades were A*- B.

Principal of Thomas Deacon Academy, Rick Carroll, said: “These results are a real testament to the hard work and partnership of parents, staff and students. A significant proportion of students have fulfilled or exceeded our expectations. These results continue to reflect the hard work put in by students and staff over the past two years.”

“Early indications show that nearly all students who want to go on to university will be able to access their preferred choice. For many students these results demonstrate excellent progress from their starting point on entering the school.”

Julie Taylor, CEO of Thomas Deacon Education Trust, said: “On behalf of the whole Trust, I would like to congratulate all staff and students on another fantastic set of A-Level results. These results are a true refection of the dedication of all involved and I wish the students the best of luck in their future adventures.”
