CLACTON COASTAL ACADEMY CELEBRATE POST-16 RESULTS
CCA Student Tayler Denny achieves straight A* grades
in History, Psychology and Criminology
Sixth formers from Clacton Coastal Academy are today celebrating their Key Stage 5 results, having faced months away from school as a result of national lockdowns and Covid restrictions.
Given the circumstances, the Government decided that students’ results would be determined by teachers. Each school has considered carefully what a fair grade is for each student, based on what they have been able to learn during the two years. These grades were submitted to the exam boards together with supporting evidence, and then quality assured by the exam boards.
Students at CCA will now be going on to take up places at university, with Tayler Denny going on to study History at The University of Essex. Tayler achieved straight A* grades in History, Psychology and Criminology. Lois Joss will be going on to study Children's Care Learning and Development at The University of Suffolk and Nathan Hill will be going on to study Business Management at Anglia Ruskin.
In the vocational arena, sixth form students at Clacton Coastal Academy also achieved some impressive outcomes, with Sean Judge achieving a triple D* in Business and an A in IFS and Faith Jones achieving an A* in Childcare and a double D* in Health and Social Care going on to employment in their chosen sector.
In addition to this, the following students did remarkably well, securing excellent grades in their subjects:
Rebecca England achieved an A grade for Photography and a double distinction in Sport.
Kaci Welch achieved an A* in Criminology and a Distinction * and Distinction in Health and Social Care.
Christopher Sutton achieved a double Distinction* in Business.
Nathan Hill achieved a double Distinction* in Business.
David Lees, Executive Head said:
“Congratulations to all of our students on their fantastic results. I am extremely proud of the excellent outcomes for the Sixth Form students from both CCA & TTC, they should be rightly proud of these grades, which they have worked so very hard for. Our students have responded to the challenges of the past few months, with determination, compassion and patience. Whether they are going onto university, high-quality vocational courses, or employment, I am confident that they will continue to make us proud.”
David Hatchett, National Director of Secondary Schools at AET said:
“Today’s A level and vocational results are testament to the hard work and resilience of students over what has been a challenging and disruptive two years. I congratulate each and every one of them, and pay tribute to our teachers who have helped make this possible, and ensured that our young people can progress onto the next stage of their lives successfully.”
