Sixth form students celebrate A-Level Results

Students and staff at Plympton Academy, located on Moorland Road and part of Thinking Schools Academy Trust, are celebrating after receiving their A-Level grades today.

This year, students at the Academy have excelled, achieving a year of great results. Many students are now preparing to head on to the university, apprenticeship or job of their choice.

The school is particularly proud of the results from Spanish which saw 100% of students gaining A*-B grades, and Photography which saw 80% of students achieving A*-B grades.  Further success was also seen with the Sixth Form’s BTEC pathway and subjects such as Health and Social Care with 83% of students gaining Distinction * to Distinction grades.

While all students have done well, there are some standout individual achievements. These include:

  • Rachael Easterbrook, who achieved AAA, will be studying Law at the Prestigious Durham University.
  • Ellie Beddell Garner, who achieved an A in Spanish and a Double Distinction in Performing Arts, is intending to study Drama, Film and Screen at Bath Spa.
  • Charlotte Jones, who achieved AB and a Distinction * in her subjects, is going on to study Psychology and Criminology at Plymouth University.

Collecting his A Level results today, Robert Nedelcu, said:           

Collecting my results, I am reminded that knowledge is power, but that action is even more powerful.  I am pleased with my results, and they will enable me to study computer science in the future.  I have enjoyed the diverse experience of studying at Plympton Academy, it was a pleasure to work with the teachers and work in such a friendly atmosphere.  I will miss my time here, but look forward to my next steps.
