Post 16 Results Day

Posted / 15th August 2019 - The Marsh Academy

Post 16 students at The Marsh Academy celebrated excellent results for A-Levels and Vocational qualifications. The students were able to enjoy the result of a lot of hard work and commitment over the last two years and as a result all students who applied to study at university had their first choices confirmed while others have secured employment and apprenticeships. Many students achieved a full suite of three Distinction / Distinction* in Sport Studies, Health and Social Care while others achieved A grades in A-Levels across a range of subjects from Sociology to Art and History to Extended Project. 

Lucy Cole achieved an A in Sociology, a Distinction in Health and Social care and a Distinction in Art.  Lucy stated “I have enjoyed sixth form and the support the teachers gave me was fantastic.  The hard work was all worth it in the end. I am really looking forward to the next adventure in my life.”


Charley Lock achieved an A in Sociology, B in Psychology, C in History and A* in the Extended Project Qualification.  Charley was very pleased with his results: “I have really enjoyed my time in Post 16 as staff give unlimited support.  If you are willing to work hard and prioritise learning, you will get to where you want to be.”  Charley was also one of the top scorers in the Marsh Academy Football Academy.  Charlie is moving on to read International Relations and Politics at the University of Portsmouth.

Principal, Shaun Simmons commented: “We congratulate all our students receiving results today and wish them well as they take up their places at university, employment, apprenticeships or begin their gap year. The hard work of students and staff paid off, with both academic and vocational results, stronger than last year and some fine individual outcomes. I am delighted with the success of our Post 16 provision and in particular, proud that every student applying for university achieved the grades to get into their first choice.”
