Ashington Academy students are celebrating receiving their A level results today after an unprecedented year.
Over the past two years, students have worked hard and this is reflected in results which will see 74% of students heading to university to study courses of their choice.
Among our top performers is Jack Neill, who achieved two A*s in geography and history and an A in English language, who will now go on to study history at Durham University. Jacob Brotherton was awarded an A* in physics and maths, a B in geography and an A in AS level further maths and is heading to the University of Bath to study civil engineering. Jack Ramshaw received a clean sweep of Bs in maths, biology and chemistry which has secured his place at the University of Leeds to study chemical engineering. Elise Miller and Anya Miller are also celebrating their fantastic results with Elise’s A in art, B in economics and C in maths seeing her off to the University of Leeds to study textile design and Anya is heading to Leeds Beckett University to study fashion marketing after achieving two Bs in law and English literature and a distinction in business.
Our Head of School, Yvonne Weston, commented: “It is fantastic to see students celebrating and I am so proud of the resilience that our students have shown during this period. We are very pleased with what our students have achieved, thanks to their hard work and dedication to their studies over the last two years. Our students are now looking forward to taking their next steps and we wish them the very best of luck in their futures.
“Since our school joined the North East Learning Trust in 2017, we have been making rapid improvements and it is thanks to the hard work of our staff and students that have helped to guide our school onto our new direction. This years’ improved results show the positive impact this is having and we will continue to strive to help the school reach its full potential.”
