The results are a marked improvement from 2013 and the academy is particularly pleased with the improvements in Mathematics where all students gained grades A*-B at A-Level and in the number of A*-B grades gained across the sixth form.  Across the vocational and A Level subjects 48% of students achieved at least one grade at this higher level.

12% of the students are also successful applicants to the prestigious Russell Group universities, which only accept students with the highest grades at A level.

Gillian Nangreave achieved the best A Level results Shelfield Community Academy has ever seen, achieving an incredible three A* grades including an A* in English Literature, an A* in Biology, an A* in Art as well as a B in Chemistry A level.  Gillian has been accepted to study English at York University.

Head Boy, Oliver Dunn, is another one of the successful Russell group applicants.  He achieved an A* in History, an A in Chemistry, a B in Mathematics, an A in AS Level Physics, adding to the C in English Literature A Level which he achieved in Y12!

Kiruan Kaur Ghuman is another one of the academy’s success stories. Taking three of the esteemed facilitating subjects, she achieved an A grade in Mathematics, an A grade in Biology and a B in Chemistry and is going to read Chemistry at the University of Birmingham, again a Russell Group University.

 Vocational subjects also saw a marked improvement this year, with more Distinction * grades than the academy has seen previously.  Talented actress and Head Girl Beth Hazel achieved a Distinction * in both Performing Arts and Creative Media Production and plans to study Drama and Performance at the University of Worcester.
The academy is also proud to have its first Oxbridge applicant this year.  Year 12 student Rose Bennett achieved four A grades at AS Level and is hoping to study at Cambridge in 2015.

Principal Paula Ward commented: “It is fantastic to see that the changes we have put into place this academic year within the sixth form have had such a positive impact.  Students and staff have worked incredibly hard and I am thrilled with the students’ successes.”
