“Many of our option subjects have also performed very well: PE achieved 93 per cent A* to C and Art 92% A* to C.”

Mr Midgley continued: “Our Academy’s key strengths are a feeling of inclusion, community and support, together with academic success, which has been demonstrated this year.

“We believe that everyone should be valued as an individual, which gives students the confidence to develop a thirst for learning in pursuit of their aspirations to be the best they can be.

“As a result of this, there have been some fantastic individual student performances, with a number of youngsters achieving 8 or more A* to A grades.
