The Leigh Academy Post 16 Results 2021

At The Leigh Academy we are so proud of our Year 13 students, who, despite the challenges faced over the last two years as a result of the pandemic, celebrated their results with staff and parents today. After an anxious wait, there was much to celebrate, as so many students had been awarded excellent grades and were delighted with their A level and vocational qualification outcomes that match the level of success for IB results in July. 

IB results represent a continuing upward trend of success with with 70% of entries graded between grade 5 (equivalent to a B grade) and grade 7 (equivalent to an A* grade). A Level students achieved an average grade of B, while vocational students achieved an average grade of Distinction. 

“We believe that the mix of qualifications that we offer, along with the extra opportunities and pastoral care we provide, genuinely increase aspiration amongst our students and open doors to the future, even in uncertain times like those we are living through now,” said Mr Burton, Director of Post-16. “We have had an exceptionally happy results day. Our students have earned their success, through two years of hard work and commitment from students, teachers and parents and carers. Maintaining that exceptional strength of relationships really pays off in the end for our students.”
