The Brittons Academy is thrilled to report another year of outstanding achievements by its students in their KS4 qualifications this summer. Students have worked tirelessly in the most challenging of circumstances to achieve their potential in their GCSEs, BTECs, Cambridge Nationals and Level 2 Awards. This year, following the cancellation of exams, grades were awarded through a process of teacher assessed grades, against a national standard and approved and awarded by the exam boards. The government is not publishing performance data for any schools or colleges this year due to the varying impact of the pandemic.
Below are just a few students who have performed particularly well this year:
Himmat Kaul achieved the highest grades possible in seven of his subjects with 6 Grade 9s in Maths, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Computer Science and History, and a Distinction Star in Enterprise and Marketing. He also achieved a Grade 8 in English. Himmat said “Brittons have made sure I get the future I have planned. These grades mean I can get where I want to go.”
Thasiba Ahmed, our Head Girl, achieved 4 Grade 9s in Maths, Biology, History and Geography, 4 Grade 8s in Chemistry, Physics, English Language and Religious Studies and a Grade 7 in English Literature. Thasiba said “the teachers have been so supportive and they will always do everything they can to help you.” Thasiba plans to study A Levels in History, Biology, Chemistry and Maths at Brampton Manor.
Amber Juggins achieved 4 Grade 9s in Maths, Biology, Chemistry and Geography, a Distinction Star in Sport, 3 Grade 8s in English Literature, Physics, and Religious Studies, and a Grade 7 in English Language. Amber plans to study A-Levels in Psychology, Sociology and Law at The Drapers Academy.
Will Thompson, the academy’s principal said: “We are immensely proud of the achievements of all our students. Supported by their families and the incredible staff here, they overcame all the disruptions and difficulties of the past 18 months to obtain these qualifications. All can progress onto further education and study and we are very excited about what they will accomplish in the future.”
