A-level Results Day 2019: Attleborough Academy Norfolk




There has been speculation that maths results would be different this year, but Attleborough Academy Norfolk has not seen a significant change to the number of students taking maths in the last three years.

This year, 52 students sat A-levels with 63 per cent of them obtaining grades from A* to C.

Student Alfie Holmes is celebrating outstanding grades of two A*s (in Product Design and Maths) and one A (in Geography).

Alfie is now going to go on to study Product Design Engineering at Brunel University.

He says he has arrived at this choice of degree course by choosing things he enjoys.

He said: "Product design is creative but it also involves technical ability, I like the balance of maths and creative subjects.ā€

With his mock exams having gone well, Alfie speaks of his initial reaction to his A-level grades.

ā€œI was mainly relieved it has all paid off. Iā€™m really happy.ā€

The overall pass rate this year was 98 per cent in comparison to last year's 96.

Principal Neil McShane said: "This year shows a significant increase for the academy in the number of students achieving the higher grades and another increase to the overall pass rate.

"Many congratulations to all our Year 13 students for their hard work and commitment. Particular congratulations go to Alfie Holmes on his superb achievement.

"Many thanks also to all our staff for their dedication and professionalism and to our parents for their continuing support."
