A Level Results

Greensward Academy Sixth Form has consolidated its position as one of the leading providers in the country with the publication of this year’s performance data by the government. We are delighted that the progress at A level was rated the best in Essex in the recent government league tables. Our performance also placed us in the top 5% of providers in the country. A fantastic achievement by all.

In our Alps scores, measuring the progress students make against a target grade, both our AS and A2 cohorts achieved a score of “2”, ranking Greensward in the top 10% of sixth forms nationally for the second year running. Highlighting the breadth of quality at the Academy, departments as diverse as Business Studies and Chemistry, History and Mathematics and Economics and Geography all gained the coveted “outstanding” rating for their A2 results.

A massive congratulations to the students and staff for their achievements. It is perhaps worth noting that with vacancies on some courses remaining, it still isn’t too late to secure a place in our sixth form community and help ensure a brighter future.
