Students’ Spectacular Success
The Oxford Academy (TOA) is delighted to report a year of outstanding student achievement at A Level. An excellent overall pass rate of 96% was attained that significantly exceeds that of the previous year.
The superb set of results comprises a quarter of all grades being awarded at the very highest levels of A/A*. This is complemented by the incredible statistic that nearly three quarters of grades were A*- C, a quadrupling of the corresponding result in 2019!
Many students are celebrating individual successes and one individual has particular cause to reflect with pride on his performance. Morgan Waite, achieved the unique clean sweep of 3 A*s in Biology, Chemistry and Mathematics. With such stellar results under his belt, Morgan is looking forward to taking up a place at Hull Medical School to read Medicine.
The spectacular achievements of the A Levels cohort are matched by their counterparts following BTEC programmes of study. This group of young people realised an 100% pass rate with 29% of results at the very highest level of Distinction Star (D*). Cumulatively 59% of all results were D*/Distinction and 86% were in the D* to Merit range. Both of these statistics are in considerable excess of the 2019 figures.
As with the A Levels, many BTEC students are in possession of some stellar results. Foremost of these is Eraldo Hasaj who gained 2 Distinction Stars and a Distinction in BTEC Engineering combined with a Distinction Star in BTEC IT. With these achievements, Eraldo is off to Brunel University to study Business and Computing.
Reflecting on the achievements of the TOA Sixth Form Class of 2020, Tony Wilson Chair of The Interim Academy Board commented, “These results are the just rewards for the incredibly hard work of our students. They have faced unprecedented challenges but have emerged with fantastic outcomes that set them up well for their future destinations. With such achievements our students have brought great credit to themselves, their families and communities. All connected with The Oxford Academy wish them the very best for their futures”
Mr Wilson added, “The 2020 Post-16 results are further evidence of the journey of rapid improvement that is underway at The Oxford Academy and testimony to the incredibly hard work of all staff in supporting our students in their achievements.”
