The Milton Keynes Academy’s A Level results rose to a record level for the third year in a row. Unsurprisingly, there was much to celebrate. Impressive results included an increase of 12% in both the number achieving A*-B Grades and those achieving A*-C Grades.

A growing number of students have successfully secured places at Russell Group Universities, such as Edinburgh and Warwick. These results mean that over 95% of students who applied to go to University are now assured a place.

Changes to the assessment of Post-16 vocational qualifications have been challenging nationally. However, The Milton Keynes Academy continues to strengthen its reputation. Every student passed their BTEC qualification, the vast majority achieving the higher grades.

As well as strong overall results, there were a wide number of personal success stories.

Maisha is thrilled to have been accepted to study history at Warwick, saying “I just want to say thank you for everything! I’m incredibly excited to start at University. ”Maisha will be joining her sister, another Academy graduate, who is in her third year studying English Literature and is going on to do an MA and a PHD. Julieanne, another student, commented “I’m off to Edinburgh…it is my first choice and I am absolutely thrilled.”

Two friends, Aisha and Nicola, were also delighted as they both head off to Leicester. They added “We are so excited, we are really happy with our results, we can’t wait to start university! We are grateful for the support given to us by the Academy.”

Fiona Seddon, the Principal of The Milton Keynes Academy, proudly commented: “It was fantastic to see so many students delighted with their results. It is a testament to their hard work, the support of their teachers and their families. We have no doubt that these young people will continue to flourish whether it be at university, an apprenticeship or in the workplace.”
