Thornaby Academy’s results include:
– Highest ever number of top grades
– Highest ever number of students achieving both English and maths
– One of the most improved schools in the Tees Valley.
Year 11 students at Thornaby Academy are celebrating after achieving the Academy’s highest ever number of high grade passes at GCSE. In addition, the Academy saw more students than ever achieve both English and maths qualifications.
Subject attainment also continued on an upward trend, with year-on-year improvements seen in Art, English Literature, History, ICT, Media Studies and RE.
Special recognition must be given to Megan Eden, 16, who achieved a phenomenal 11 A* or A grades in her final exams and an impressive B grade in her early-entry AS-level Art and Design. Megan was awarded a special prize at the Academy’s prom earlier in the year for securing 100% attendance throughout her five years at school.
Maryssa O’Connor, Principal of Thornaby Academy, said:
“Once again we are exceptionally proud of our students and the results they have achieved today.
“Since opening five years ago, results at the Academy have continued to improve and we are extremely pleased that both staff and students are being rewarded for their hard work and dedication.
“These results will see our students secure places at college, as well as competitive apprenticeships and employment. We would like to wish everyone leaving us best wishes for their future.”
