TCA's A Level round-up
Thomas Clarkson Academy is celebrating another strong set of results in maths and the sciences, with students again going on to prestigious Russell Group universities for the second year running.
The number of students achieving top grades in maths has increased thanks to the Academy’s drive to improve outcomes for students by creating a culture of ambition. 100% of students passed A Level mathematics, with 57% gaining A*-B grades. A Level chemistry and physics also celebrate a 100% pass rate.
Associate Principal Richard Scott said: “We’re very pleased that the school continues to make progress and that we’re sending students off to a variety of universities to study a broad selection of courses.
“We’re very happy to report that a number of students have done very well in subjects such as the sciences and we’ve delighted to see more A grades in some of these areas.”
Some of the students’ destinations include King’s College London and the University of Nottingham.
In October last year, Ofsted inspectors judged TCA’s Sixth Form as ‘good’, noting that ‘leaders have high expectations’ and that students make good progress.
