Barry Simpson, Vice Principal and Director of Sixth Form said: “It is a privilege to see so many ecstatic students receiving what can only be described as another set of fantastic results for themselves and also West Lakes Academy. These students committed themselves to two years of intensive study that has culminated in some exceptional outcomes. The most important thing about these results however is that they will secure a route not only for our students to further their education as far afield as London or Edinburgh but to also begin higher and advanced level apprenticeships within the local area and to share their learning and achievements with the local and global communities into which they now enter.”
James Jackson, Principal of West Lakes Academy said: “I am absolutely delighted with these results. They are a real testament to the hard work of the students and staff here at WLA and I wish our young people every success in the future – I am incredibly proud of each and every one of them. A special thank you must also go to the families of our students for their constant and unwavering support over the last two years – without this, such fantastic results would not be possible.”
Jonathan Johnson, Chief Executive of the West Lakes Multi-Academy Trust added: “I am delighted for the young people of West Lakes Academy and to see the quality of their education has remained at the highest level while we have continued to grow as a multi-academy trust; we haven’t lost what’s special about WLA. The students’ results are a perfect reflection of all their hard work and that of the staff over the past seven years. This has been my constant prayer and it has been answered. I thank God that we have such a talented and committed group of adults, leading such a willing community of students.”
The academy will release its headline data in September once the official DfE checking exercise has been completed, allowing for queries over re-marks and grade boundaries to be addressed.
