Post 16 students at Tuxford Academy, part of the Diverse Academies Learning Partnership, are excited for the future after another year of outstanding A Level results.

Half of Tuxford students are celebrating after being awarded the top A Level grades of A*-B. The academy is also celebrating an overall pass rate of 100%.

The majority of this year’s Tuxford Academy year 13 students have achieved their first choice in destination, whether that be university (including a number going to Russell Group universities), further education or employment.

Tuxford Academy principal, David Vernon, said: “We are always incredibly proud and humbled by what our post 16 students accomplish and this year is no different. Every single one of them has worked hard to reach this point and, having watched most of them grow up from year 7 all the way through to adulthood, I am thrilled to see them leave us with a fantastic set of results.

“I wish them all every success in the future, whether they start work, go to university or to college, and would like to thank them and our fantastic staff for working so hard over the past couple of years.”

Leanne Murphy, assistant principal and head of post 16 at the academy, added: “It is a delight for my team to be able to see this wonderful set of students realise their goals and move on to the next step in their journeys.

“We have watched them work together and grow in confidence over the past two years and they, and our staff, deserve to be celebrating today. I wish them the very best of luck for the future.”
