Categories: Latest Academy News, Featured

The school has achieved an excellent set of results this year, with over a third (38%) of entries achieving A*-A grades. 65% of entries achieved A*-B grades, and 89% achieved A*-C grades. Two students at the school, Oliwier Rawa and Alicia Lam, were awarded a highly impressive four and three A*s respectively.  

These superb results have enabled the Year 13s to secure places at some of the country’s most prestigious universities, with 23% of students heading to Russell Group institutions, including the University of Cambridge. Once there, students will be taking up a range of competitive courses, with five of the school’s young people going on to study either Medicine or Dentistry.

Among the Year 13s celebrating today, standout student successes include:

  • Genevieve Ayalogu, who achieved an A* in Sociology and As in History and English Literature. Genevieve will be going on to read Human, Social and Political Sciences at Pembroke College, University of Cambridge.
  • Oliwier Rawa, who achieved A*s in Computer Science, Maths, Further Maths and Physics. Oliwier will be taking up a place at the University of Warwick to study Computer Science.
  • Alicia Lam, who achieved A*s in Biology, Chemistry and Maths. Alicia, who completed the school’s Nucleus VI Medical Programme, has secured a place at King’s College London to study Dentistry.
  • Fernando Redondo-De Diego, who achieved A*s in Maths and Further Maths and an A in Physics. Fernando will be studying Civil Engineering at the University of Leeds.
  • Diana Petruhina, who achieved A*s in Religious Studies and Sociology and an A in History. Diana is going on to study Law at the University of Warwick.
  • Freya Ward, who achieved A*s in Maths and Sociology and a Distinction* in PE. Freya will be taking up a place at University Centre Bishop Burton to study Equine Health.

Commenting on the students’ notable achievements, Chris Clyne, Principal at Northampton Academy, said:  

“Many congratulations to all our Year 13s on this year’s results. The past few years have been a great challenge for young people across the country. I am incredibly proud of our Sixth Formers for their unwavering determination and commitment to their A Level and equivalent studies. Their hard work and determination shine through in these results, of which they should all be very proud. They have shown real character to navigate every obstacle thrown at them. 

“I am particularly pleased that so many of our students have been able to take up places at their first-choice universities to study such highly-respected courses. Ensuring our young people have the knowledge, skills and confidence they need to set high aspirations – and meet them – is exactly what we want for them. Congratulations once again to all our students celebrating their results today.”
