A Level Exam Results
Beacon Academy A Level Examination Results 2018
Beacon Academy is celebrating another very successful year, with an A Level and equivalent examination pass rate of well over 99%.
After a couple of years of enormous changes in the national assessment at Advanced Level, we are particularly proud of the consistently excellent achievements of our students and staff despite the new, tougher exam regime.
Headteacher, Anna Robinson and Head of Sixth Form, Steve Baker, both attribute the ongoing success to the exceptionally positive relationship that exists between our hardworking students, our phenomenally dedicated staff and our wonderfully supportive parents:
“We are incredibly proud of our students, and on behalf of all of the staff, trustees and our entire community at Beacon Academy, we would like to congratulate all Year 13 students, who have worked incredibly hard under really challenging circumstances, once again, to achieve these impressive results.”
