Sixth form students at St Mary’s Catholic Academy achieved a sparkling set of results, with 100 per cent of students achieving at least two A-Levels or equivalent.

What’s more, 98 per cent of students achieved three or more A-Levels or equivalent (not including general studies) at the St Walburga’s Road college in Blackpool.

Students excelled in achieving a record number of the highest grades with almost 60 per cent achieving the highest grades of A* and A, or Distinction* and Distinction in their results.

Headteacher Simon Eccles said: “I am incredibly happy for our students who have worked so hard to achieve such an exemplary set of results.

“I would also like to thank the staff who work tirelessly to develop innovative lessons and to support students on their learning journey at St Mary’s.

“This set of results means that once again all of our students will have the opportunity to pursue their further education or career aspirations over the next few years.”

Among the highest achieving students to be awarded all A* and A grades were Angus Young, who studied biology, English Literature, French, and politics, and will go on to do law at the University of Newcastle, and Joe Walsh, who studied biology, chemistry, and maths, is set to study maths at the University of Manchester.

Other high-flyers who scored A to C grades in all subjects include Grace Oldfield who achieved her grades in business, English literature, psychology and history and will go on to study law.

Olivia Maginnis-Jones, who studied business, English language, and psychology, is now set to study English language at degree level;

And Tom Hall, whose grades in computer studies, maths, politics, and psychology mean he will now be able to pursue further education in maths.

Year 12 students at the sixth form have also laid the foundations for future success with their AS Levels.

The higher A to C grade was achieved by 59 per cent of students with 19 subject areas guiding students to the highest A and B grades.

Head of sixth form, Jennifer Burrough, said: “St Mary’s sixth form is a close family where our clear support system ensures students receive the targeted help they require.

“Our Catholic caring ethos and pride in all of our students is what makes our sixth form unique.”
