Overall, the number of A-level entries achieving an A* to C grade rose significantly to 65% - an increase of eight percentage points from 2017 and also achieved an exceptional 100% pass rate across all A Levels (A* to E). There was also a strong increase in the proportion of students achieving the top grades, with the percentage of students achieving A* to A grades up by 12 percentage points from 2017, while almost 40% of students achieved A* to B grades this year.

In mathematics, an impressive 86% of entries achieved a grade A* to C and 71% achieved the top A* to B grades – the best-ever results recorded at the academy. In History, more than three-quarters of A-level entries secured A* to C grades, with 71% achieving A* to B. In Art, a stunning 100% of A-level entries achieved A* to B grades.

Vocational students also achieved highly, with 80% of Interactive Media entries and 100% of BTEC Sport exams gaining A* to C equivalents. Results for students studying Level 3 vocational courses were also exceptional, with five students achieving triple A* grades in Childcare.

Amongst the many successes:

  • Harry Landles achieved an impressive A* in maths, and two As in Biology and Geography. He will now go on to read Economics and Mathematics at Leeds University.
  • Chloe Tulloch achieved two A*s in both Art and English Literature, and a C in History. She will continue her studies at University of East Anglia, with a degree in Literature and History whilst pursuing her art in her own time.
  • Ben Revell, who secured an A in English Language and Business Studies and a B in History, will be studying Marketing at Aston University.
  • Mickey Hill and Rachel Elvin – who are also celebrating excellent A-level outcomes, and will begin working at the academy in September, for their Gap Years before university.

Head of Sixth Form, Richard Timm, said:

"I would like to congratulate all students on a wonderful set of results. I’m proud of all students at Lord Nelson Sixth Form whose hard work and dedication over the past two years has paid off with some fantastic outcomes.
