Students at the National Church of England Academy in Hucknall, part of Diverse Academies, were celebrating this morning as they received their A Level results at Hucknall Sixth Form Centre. Their hard work really paid off, with 37% gaining the top A*- B grades, and 63% receiving A* – C.
Head of sixth form Kelly Wall joined students this morning as they opened their results and said; “Once again our students have demonstrated their talents and dedication to learning with a great set of results. I am so proud of this wonderful set of students who I have seen grow, develop and reach for the high aspirations they have set for themselves. The success of these individuals is testament to them taking these chances to develop academically and personally, with great support from our dedicated staff.”
There have been a number of notable successes from individuals – top performing student at the academy was George N, achieving a hugely impressive set of results with four A* grades (Spanish, history, English literature and Extended Project Qualification) and will be going to study Spanish and Portuguese at Oxford University.
George said of his achievement: “I was surprised when I opened the envelope – I had to check they were my results! Hard work always pays off and the support from staff has been a major part in helping me achieve these grades. I’m really excited about going to Oxford now – I’ve been holding back from celebrating until I had the results in my hand. It’s a dream come true!”
The most improved student was Madeline B with A*, B and two Cs, going up three grades across four subjects during her final year.
Other great individual successes include Louis T who achieved A*, A*, A, A and who will now go on to study joint mathematics and physics at Warwick University, Farrell B who also scored A*, A*, A, A will be going to the University of Sheffield to study mathematics, accounting and finance and Charlotte G who achieved an impressive A*, A, A, B and will be studying mathematics at the University of Nottingham.
Paul Simpson, head of Hucknall Sixth Form Centre, added, “Many of these talented students will now move on to study at prestigious universities or find great employment opportunities – whatever path they choose, they fully deserve all the credit for their successes. We are excited to see them develop and flourish as they take the next steps in their life.”
Student numbers at Hucknall Sixth Form Centre are growing each year, with the centre having an excellent reputation in the local community and beyond. Mr Simpson added “Students come to HSFC from all over Nottinghamshire because of the high standards of teaching, quality outcomes for all students and our wide range of courses. We still have limited availability for individuals to join us from September, and hope that these results demonstrate how the centre can support all students to achieve their goals.”
