There were celebrations at Sawtry Village Academy after another year of academic success

The overall pass rate remained very high for the fourth consecutive year at 99 per cent. 58 per cent of students achieving the highest A*-B grades, which the school said was an increase of 11 per cent on 2018.

Over three quarters of all grades, 82 per cent, were graded at C and above.

These results have once again maintained the outstanding overall progress of last year with the Academy being placed in the Top 30 per cent of Sixth Forms in England for value-added. This is the progress all students across all subjects have made between their GCSE results and the end of key stage 5.

We are incredibly proud of our students, the majority of whom have achieved their first-choice place at university. We wish all our students the very best in the future.”
