Staff at Morecambe Bay Academy are delighted to be able to celebrate the students’ first set of A-Level results as an academy. At a time when many schools are narrowing the subjects offered to students, we are proud that this year, we have sustained our 100% pass rate at A-Level and Level 3 BTEC in Applied Science, Fine Art, Biology, Business Studies, Health and Social Care, Music, Sport and PE, IT, Chemistry, Dance, Drama, English Language, English Literature, Mathematics, Photography, Religious Education and Polish.
In a wide range of subjects, students have achieved the highest possible grades of A*-B. This shows the dedication and hard work of staff and students alike: 55% in Art, 33% in Biology, 75% in Music, 46% in Business Studies, 38% in Chemistry, 35% in English, 36% in Maths, 57% in Physical Education and 25% in Physics.
Our highest achievers this year are Matthew Haworth, who achieved A*s in Chemistry, Mathematics and Physics and will be going on to Lancaster University and our Head girl, Megan Williams, who achieved As in Chemistry and Mathematics and Bs in Biology and Computer Science and will be pursuing a career in Medicine at Cardiff University.
A Level results day, is not all about the students with A*s. It is also about students who have achieved their personal best and will go on to excel in their chosen field. The most progress this year against personal targets was achieved by Adam Booth, who beat his targets to achieve an Double Distinction Star in BTEC sport and a B in English Language A-Level. He was closely followed by Cameron Brown, who exceed his targets in all areas to achieve Bs in Computer Science and Mathematics and a C in Physics.
Students who deserve a mention for their hard work and dedication in pursuit of their career goals are Cameron Brown who will be based in London as he starts a prestigious apprenticeship with Google; Sophie Gibson and Charlotte Birkby who will embark upon degrees in Adult Nursing; Nathan Riley who will study Sports Therapy at Derby, Georgia Casey who plans to study History and German, Chloe Haddington and Jocelyn Walden who are both set to study Fashion Design, Lee Eccles who plans to study Sports Business and Broadcasting at Wembley and Jack Nisbet who will enter the first year of an Education Studies degree at Liverpool John Moores University.
As their Head of Year, Helen Fitzwilliam is extremely proud to witness our progress students have made throughout the year and reports that working with the students has been an absolute privilege.
