Our students are celebrating another year of excellent results.

There was excitement in the air as students were rewarded for their hard work and dedication, and the support and commitment of Tuxford Academy staff was recognised. In a particularly difficult year, working to the academy motto of ‘Excellence through Teamwork’ has been paramount.

Notable successes included Hannah Noble, from Retford, who gained seven grade 9s, one grade 8 and a Level 2 Distinction*. Hannah will continue on to study A Levels in maths, biology and chemistry at Tuxford Academy. On receiving her results, Hannah said: “I am very pleased with my results, all my hard work has paid off. I am really looking forward to returning for post 16.”

Emma Biggs, from Retford, was thrilled to receive an impressive six grade 9s and 2 grade 8s. She will be returning to Tuxford Academy to study A Levels in biology, chemistry and maths and said: “I am so excited to see where these results will take me in the future.”

Will Allan, from Averham, is also celebrating his success after an impressive set of results. Will gained five grade 9s, one grade 8 and two grade 7s. Will is planning on returning to the academy to study chemistry, biology, geography and maths and said: “I am so proud of my results, my hard work has really paid off.”

Hard work paid off too for Ellie Cawston, from Walesby, who managed to secure eight grade 9s, one grade 8 and an A*. Ellie is considering a return to Tuxford to study A Levels in geography, business, psychology and core maths. Commenting on her results, Ellie said: “Really pleased with my results and that my hard work has paid off. I am excited to start my A Levels now!”

Isaac Bee, from Little Carlton, was delighted with his results. Isaac gained four grade 9s, three grade 8s and a 7. He is planning on returning to continue his studies at Tuxford Academy Post 16 Centre and said: “I opened the envelope and just saw all the 9s, they were better than I expected. I am really pleased, as I was quite nervous, but I’m ok now!”

Mr Jon Hardy, principal at Tuxford Academy said: “I am very proud to see the hard work and dedication of our students and staff pay off today, especially considering the obstacles that they have had to overcome over the past 18 months. Watching the way in which our students have adapted and risen to each new challenge has been inspiring, and I look forward to seeing many of them back here in September as they take the next steps on their educational journeys.”
