This morning, Year 11 students from Derby Moor returned to the academy to collect their GCSE and BTEC results. We have enjoyed a really positive morning with most students achieving the grades required for them to progress to their chosen Post 16 destination. For the majority of students, we will see them in our Sixth Form this September but for others, we say farewell as the move on to new challenges at College, on Apprenticeships, or in the world of work.
Vice Principal, Kerry Wiltshire said “These results are reflective of the hard work of our students. Those who are celebrating today have applied themselves diligently to their studies throughout the year and embraced every opportunity to attend additional learning sessions both afterschool and during the holidays. Thus, proving that there is no shortcut to success! I will always remember this year group fondly and wish them every success for the future”
Principal, Scott Doyle said “It has been lovely to welcome Year 11 back to the academy this morning and celebrate their successes. Across the country we know this cohort have faced challenges and disruption to their secondary school experience but, against that backdrop, our students have shown genuine grit and determination to be fully prepared for this examination series. Thankfully, the hard work they have put in, has paid off with many surpassing their own expectations. We wish them the very best as they look forward to beginning the next chapter of their educational journey. I would like to say thank you to our staff team and the families of our students for supporting our young people and providing them with everything they have needed to be successful this year.”
Sixth Form enrolment has now begun with advisors available on site until 1pm today. External applicants are asked to visit the academy from 11am to confirm their place.
