A Level Success

17th August 2017

Garforth Academy, a member of the Delta Academies Trust, have achieved an outstanding set of Key Stage 5 results with an academic average points score of 33.56 and an Applied General average points score of 43.54.  This is a record set of results for the Academy.

All students did incredibly well and were delighted with their results which they had worked hard to achieve.  Whilst it is difficult to distinguish who stands out amongst such a terrific set of results, of particular note are the following students:

Galen Brown achieved four A*s in Chemistry, Physics, Maths and Further Maths and an A* in the Extended Project Qualification.  Galen will be going to Cambridge to study Natural Sciences.

Chris Bone achieved 3 A*s in Biology, Chemistry and Maths and will go on to study Medicine at Nottingham University.

Jacob Wharrier achieved 3 A*s in Biology, Physics, Maths and will study Engineering at Sheffield.

Alex Rowland achieved 2 A*s and an A in Chemistry, Maths and History and an A* in the Extended Project Qualification.  Alex is going to Oxford to study Philosophy, Politics & Economics.

Peter Langley will be studying Physics at Durham, having achieved an A* in Chemistry, Physics, Maths, an A in Further Maths and a B in Product Design.

Whilst many of our students will go off to university to study, next year around half of them will go on to apprenticeships and we again have many stories of students being successful in their results and in securing fantastic apprenticeship opportunities. These include Laura Mercer who is taking up an apprenticeship in paralegal at Plexus Law having achieved an A, B and C in Law, Psychology and Maths.

Again, a fantastic outcome for our students and we wish them all the best as they move into the world of work or continue their education at university or FE colleges.

Paul Tarn, Chief Executive Officer of Delta Academies Trust, said “I am delighted that the dedication of students, staff and parents has been rewarded in these excellent results.  The results achieved by the students are testament both to their hard work and to that of their teachers.   I recognise the significant improvements in performance across the Academy and this is reflective of the amazing commitment and professionalism of teachers and other Academy staff who have supported students at this important and testing time.       

We wish all students well in their next steps in education, training or employment, and look forward to hearing about their future achievements”.
