THE JCB Academy has praised engineering students who achieved good grades demonstrating their technical and academic skills in the vital area.
The Academy says 84% of students on the challenging Oxford, Cambridge and RSA (OCR) Advanced programme gained A*-C grades, putting them in a great position to take up careers in engineering.
Physics backed up this very strong showing, with over 60% of students achieving A*-B grades in this challenging science A Level.
Jim Wade the Principal said: “We are delighted that so many of our year 13 students have achieved the grades needed to go on to University and Employment.
“Our links with our partner organisations ensure students learn both the theory and how to apply this in a real context. This will set them up well for their future careers.”
At the Academy, 97% of all student entries were at a pass or better with 68% of all entries being A*-C.
