Today saw our Year 11 students receive their GCSE results. The last eighteen months have been an incredibly difficult time in education and the way our students have conducted themselves has been tremendous.
We are delighted that so many are returning to our Sixth Form and wish all those not returning the very best for the future in their chosen destinations.
Principal of Northampton Academy, Chris Clyne, said:
“I am delighted that such a high number of students have secured the grades they need to move onto their chosen next step. The second lockdown in January was particularly difficult for all and the attendance of Year 11 students to online lessons was simply outstanding. They have shown true character in what has been a hugely challenging time and should be very proud.
“Thank you to our Year 11 staff for their tireless efforts and the ongoing commitment they have shown over the last eighteen months. They have all gone above and beyond to help support students in achieving the best possible grades. I am also incredibly grateful to all our parents and carers who have been a great support to our students and to our school.
“I am looking forward to welcoming so many of our students back to our Academic Sixth Form of Character in September and wish everyone the very best for their futures. I have no doubt all our students will succeed in whatever pathway they choose.”
