Outstanding results for Plympton Academy’s Year 11
Plympton Academy is delighted to report some outstanding achievements by its students in their

Leah Nelson who achieved a very well deserved nine grade 9 qualifications and a distinction
star in her BTEC.

distinction stars in her BTECs.

achievements of our students, especially after such a difficult and disrupted year. There are so
many outstanding results it is difficult to name them all - they have been amazing and resilient
and should feel proud of their achievements.”
