A Level and BTEC results add up to success at Heath Lane Academy
Students at Heath Lane Academy in Earl Shilton are celebrating today after receiving their much-anticipated A Level results.
Number-crunching whizz kids led the field for top grades with 75% of students taking maths achieving A* and A grades, and 100% achieving A* to B for accounting, highlighting the school’s strengths in the all-important maths-based subjects.
Overall, a 100% A Level pass rate has been maintained for the third successive year since the school joined the Midland Academies Trust. Almost a fifth of grades were awarded at A* or A overall, and nearly two fifths at A* to B.
In addition, 80% of BTEC students achieved Distinction or Distinction* grades.
Star students included Zoe Westcott who achieved A grades for maths and accounting and will now be going on to Loughborough University to study mathematics.
Zoe said, “I’m very happy with how the school has helped me in my studies, without them I wouldn’t have got the grades I have. I’m looking forward to studying Maths at Loughborough.”
Jamie Thorne was proud to have achieved an A* grade in maths. He is now planning to study mathematics at De Montfort University. He said, “It’s been a pleasure to study here – everyone has been very supportive.”
Curtis Wale achieved an A grade for his maths A Level and will now go on to study engineering at the University of Leicester.
Curtis said, “I’ve really enjoyed my time at Heath Lane Academy; the tight knit community was really supportive during exam time. I’m aiming high for the future and looking forward to going to university.”
