Year 13 students at Skinners’ Academy have personified the school’s motto of ‘Be the best you can’ and are celebrating their exceptional grades this morning.

This year’s cohort achieved 100% A*E (A-Level & Vocational equivalent). On average, students who completed A-Level courses gained an A- with a VA score of +1.2, meaning they achieved results 1.2 grades higher than would have been expected based on their GCSE results on entry. 79% achieved A*-B grades. Students who completed vocational courses gained a Distinction+ on average with 53% awarded a Distinction*.
Our students have gained places at several universities across the country including, Queen Mary University, Middlesex University, Coventry University, University of Birmingham, University of Northampton, University on Nottingham and City, University of London; and will be studying a range of courses including Law, Children’s Nursing, Business Analytics, Psychology, Architecture, and Advertising & Digital Marketing.
