Our students were in good spirits as they arrived at the Academy for their GCSE results. Students were happy with their results, pleased to see their friends and teachers after such a long time away from the Academy.

There was a plethora of students who rejoiced in top grades across the board, meeting and exceeding their expectations and target grades to ensure entry into their Sixth Form of choice.

It was fantastic news for Deja, Lisa, Jordan, Salaina, Lucy amongst just some of those with a full suite of top grades. The future certainly looks bright and their smiles said it all.

Many students will be going on to study A-level or vocational courses at All Saints Sixth Form College in Garston, a collaboration between ASFA and The Academy of St Nicholas, while others will be heading into alternative education, training and work options.

It has been a difficult year for students across the country who should have sat their GCSE and A-level exams in the summer, but didn’t get the chance too. After the government’s last minute decision to change the way in grades were awarded this year, we are pleased to see many of our students given the grades they deserve and will allow them to move on to their desired destination. Our Year 11 students have worked incredibly hard over the years at ASFA and although they didn’t get to sit their exams, they should be very proud of what they have achieved to date. I would like to wish them all the best of luck as they embark on the next chapter of their lives.
