A Level students in our Sixth Form are celebrating today with a 100% pass rate for their results with many being accepted to university.
Rhys Allum, a Year 13 student, studied A Levels in English Literature, History and Drama, and Theatre Studies, as well as an AS Level in Sociology, and hopes to take up a career in British politics. On receiving his results, Rhys said: “I am absolutely thrilled with my results and I have just found out that I’ve secured a place at University of Suffolk where I’ll be studying Politics and International Relations. From an early age, I have been interested in politics and was even fortunate enough to take internships with the MP of Ipswich and at Westminster.
“Studying at Alde Valley Academy Sixth Form has really cemented me as an adult and helped me find my place in our community. I’ve really enjoyed my time here and, as well as the support I’ve received from the school, I’ve been involved in a number of charitable events.”
Mr Wilson, Principal said: “Our students have made extraordinary progress and we are absolutely delighted with their results. The commitment and passion they have shown in the last two years has been exceptional and we have seen all of our students flourish into upstanding citizens of our community with bright futures ahead of them – well done to everyone.”
Mr Wilson added: “What is particularly encouraging is the progress the students have made whilst studying at Alde Valley Academy and the vast majority have exceeded their target grades, which are based on their GCSE results. We have been working extremely hard to inspire our students to reach their potential through a wide range of activities, which have included organising charitable and community events, internships and residential trips, as well as mentoring our Year 11 students.
“We are continuing to invest in our school and we are extremely excited for the times ahead. We’re certainly a school that is making great progress and we’re all looking forward to seeing this with our GCSE results next week.
