Another fantastic set of results at post-16

5th September 2018

Garforth Academy, a member of the Delta Academies Trust, have achieved another outstanding set of Key Stage 5 results this year which build on the record set of results for the Academy last year. Our A Level Value Added score of 0.21 is again likely to be validated as the highest the Academy has ever achieved. This puts us in the top 10% of all Key Stage 5 providers nationally.

All students did incredibly well and were delighted with their results which they had worked so 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;

Kimberley Holmes achieved three A*s in Chemistry, Biology and Extended Project Qualification as well as an A grade in Maths.  Kimberley will be going to the University of York to study Biology.

Katie Wright achieved two A*s in Sociology and Extended Project Qualification as well as two A grades in Religious Studies and Psychology. Katie will go on to study Criminology and Sociology at the University of Hull.
