De Warenne celebrates Year 13 results

17th August 2017

Students and staff at De Warenne Academy are celebrating a great set of results.

38% of the A Level results were graded at A*-B and 23.8% of grades were A and A*.

100% of candidates passed all of their A Levels, again beating the national average of 97.9%.

Megan Jones has performed magnificently all year and her hard work has been rewarded with an A* in Economics, an A in Maths and a B grade in English Language – as well as a bursary prize from the Mexborough and District branch of the Lions Association, which she will use towards equipment for her degree in Mathematics at Sheffield Hallam University.

Similarly, Victoria Cope achieved an A in English Literature, a B in History and a C in French and she is now looking forward to studying for a career in Law.

Students on Level 3 BTEC courses outstripped last year’s great results, with 100% of all grades awarded at Distinction * or Distinction standard.

Nathan Bucknell not only achieved a triple Distinction * in his ICT course, he also added a Distinction * in Games Design, which has won him a place at Sheffield Hallam University to read Computer Security with Forensics.

Principal, Anna Rooney said “We are delighted with all our students’ achievements this year.  They have been great role models for younger members of the Academy and I am sure they will all go on to experience further successes.  This performance is well-deserved and represents all their hard work and commitment and also the support given by staff and parents.  We will miss them very much”.

Paul Tarn, Chief Executive Officer of Delta Academies Trust, said “I am delighted that the dedication of students, staff and parents has been rewarded in these excellent results.  The results achieved by the students are testament both to their hard work and to that of their teachers.   I recognise the significant improvements in performance across the Academy and this is reflective of the amazing commitment and professionalism of teachers and other Academy staff who have supported students at this important and testing time.       

We wish all students well in their next steps in education, training or employment, and look forward to hearing about their future achievements”.
