Students at Kings Sixth are celebrating their fantastic A Level and Level 3 vocational results today. The students have worked incredibly hard to achieve these results that reflect both their commitment to and effort in their studies.

This year more than ever students have stayed positive through unexpected and unprecedented situations showing their character and determination throughout. Each and every student has contributed and developed throughout their time in Kings Sixth; volunteering in their school and wider community helping those younger or less able with an incredible number achieving their Rising Stars certificates, the Senior Student Team raising over £10,000 for charity in the autumn term, countless sport representatives both for the Academy and beyond, music and show performances, leading church services and raising awareness of green, local and national issues to name just a few. This student group have been fantastic ambassadors for the Academy, our community and young people.
Alongside all the achievements they have accomplished beyond their qualifications so many students should be thrilled with their results and excited by the next steps they will now take up, including competitive apprenticeships and exceptional higher education places.
