Academy celebrating excellent A Level results – 15/08/2019
Knutsford Academy students and staff are celebrating another set of fantastic A Level results for 2019.
Against a national backdrop of a fall in top grades, 10% of grades at the Academy were at A* compared with 7.7% nationally. 84% of grades were A*- C and there was a 99% pass rate overall.
Headteacher James Whittaker commented ‘We are absolutely delighted with these results which underline the consistently high levels of achievement secured by students in the Academy over the last few years. We are especially pleased with these outcomes in the light of the new, more demanding and reformed linear A Levels. Students and teachers must be congratulated on their hard work and commitment.”
Some individual highlights include Adam Brown who achieved 4 A*s and will be studying Maths at the University of Cambridge, and Isobel Holloway who achieved 4 A*s and will be studying Psychology at the University of Bristol.
