We have now said goodbye to our current group of year 13 students.  The majority of them have been at the academy for over 7 years and have been part of its transformation. There are 43 students in the year group of which 33 have applied to university and have got offers depending on their results in the summer.  This is a massive 77% of the year group! The students have applied to study a wide range of courses including Law, Business, nursing/midwifery, physics, mechanical engineering, psychology, anthropology and education.  Sixteen of the students have applied to local universities with the remaining 17 applying to universities further afield such as Birmingham, Portsmouth and Swansea.  The 10 students who have chosen not to go to university have all got places on apprenticeships that provide routes in to further education and training.  Again these are in a diverse range of subjects including catering and nursing.
