Great Results for 6th Form at Kearsley Academy 2017


Students at Kearsley Academy have made great progress 'across the board' with their 6th Form results, indicatinga strong improvement on 2016.

Kearsley Academy is one of ten secondary academies operated by Northern Education Trust (NET), four of which have a sixth form. NET is a multi-academy trust, which has a growing reputation for improving schools through a combination of strong, visionary leadership, high quality teaching and learning and highly effective governance.

At Kearsley Academy this year, results in Business, Health and Social Care and Sport were particularly strong with 100% of students passing these qualifications and 71% students achieving an average grade of distinction or higher. Additionally, eight students who hope to go on to University have met or exceeded their conditional offers and all students are going on to some other form of education or employment.

Congratulations to all 6th Form students, but within these results there are some outstanding individual achievements:

EmilyTrow has secured a place at Edge Hill University and will be studying Criminology; fellow students also heading for Edge Hill include, Harvey Fairclough and Emma Wilkinson who will both study Physical Education and School Sport; Callum Eckersley and Jessica Furness achieved their desired grades and will be studying Football Coaching and Managements at Buckingham New University and Adam Knight and Diana Mallen are going to Bolton University to study Business Management and Early Years & Childhood Studies respectively.

Mr Gavin Salvesen-Sawh, Executive Principal, is delighted to offer his congratulations and thanks to his teaching staff and students for the dedication and commitment they have shown. He said, "Results like these make all the hard work worthwhile. I'm delighted for both our students and their teachers.Congratulations to staff and importantly, the students who have worked hard during the year to achieve so well. I am especially pleased to see so many Distinction* grades in Business and in Health & Social Care, which is the highest grade one can achieve."

Mr Ian Kershaw, Chief Executive of Northern EducationTrust, added:

"Kearsley Academy is continuing to make good progress and these results demonstrate that with strong leadership, high quality teaching and the right commitment from our students, anything is possible. Kearsley Academy's students and all academy staff are to be congratulated."
