Today, Northampton Academy is celebrating as Sixth Formers receive their A Level results, with two students securing places at the University of Oxford and two further students set to study Medicine.

Likewise, Jana Dedele who achieved two A*s in Sociology and Russian and one A in History, will be reading Japanese Studies at the University of Oxford.
Speaking of her success, Julia said:
“The school has been very supportive and really helped me to achieve these grades. I would like to thank all my subject teachers and Miss Tustin for her encouragement.”
Across the Year 13 cohort, 31% of A Level entries achieved grades A*-A and two-thirds (66%) achieved grades A*-B. Two of the school’s standout achievers were Charlotte Craig and Celestina Faola who will now go on to study Medicine at King’s College, London and the University of Nottingham respectively.
Celestina commented: “I really appreciate the Sixth Form team and how they have supported me throughout the UCAS process.”

Chris Clyne, Principal at Northampton Academy, said:
“I am very proud of our Year 13 students today. This is the first set of external exams they have sat, and their hard work and efforts over the last two years have meant that many of them will now go on to their first-choice destinations. Thank you to our fantastic Sixth Form team, as well as parents and carers across our school community, for the ongoing support they provide to our young people, helping them to achieve their goals.”
