North Oxfordshire Academy Students Celebrate A Level and Oxbridge Success

North Oxfordshire Academy Students Celebrate A Level and Oxbridge Success

Sixth Form students at North Oxfordshire Academy are today celebrating receiving their A Level results and for one student, the results mean she can take up her offer from Jesus College, Oxford.

Katie Piper becomes the academy’s first student to be awarded an Oxbridge place and will study Juris Prudence at Jesus College, Oxford.

A delighted Katie said:

“When I logged into the UCAS website this morning, my whole family burst into tears. It is a mixture of relief, terror and excitement. I'm excited about bounding into the great unknown.”

59% of entries from the academy were awarded A*-C grades with 34% graded A*-B, the highest of each that the school has ever achieved.

75% of grades for the vocational qualifications offered by the academy were awarded Distinction*/Distinction.

In total, 98% of grades awarded were A*-E.

There were some other notable individual successes being celebrated today (photos attached):

  • Julie Hodge, who was awarded an A and two Bs and will read Law at Leicester University;
  • Megan Husband, who achieved three As and a B in her AS levels;
  • The Academy’s Maths Department whose teachers, Jonathan White and Tim Yeomans, celebrated  the achievement of four As and a B at Further Maths AS level across their class of five  (pictured with two of their students Dominic Warner and Nathan Moore);
  • Chloe Stallwood, who secures a place at Bedford University to read Sports and Education

Congratulating the students on their success, Sara Billins, Principal of North Oxfordshire Academy, said:

“These results are testament to the hard work and commitment of our students coupled with the ambition and encouragement of our staff. I’d like to congratulate all of them on this success which demonstrates a significant increase on previous years and which ensures that students will be able to take up places at their first choice universities.

“Students across the academy are excited and motivated by the success of our Sixth Form and today’s results will spur everyone on to achieve the very best they can. We are a close-knit community here and we celebrate in each other’s success. So, by going on to good universities with these grades, I know that the impact of today’s results will encourage younger students to work even harder.

“We are particularly pleased for Katie in achieving her place at Oxford. She has worked incredibly hard during her time here and it is a sign of how far the academy has moved forward that we are now able to offer our highest performing students the support they need in applying to the very best universities.”
