Last Thursday saw scores of excited and anxious teenagers return to the Academy to pick up their A-level results.

For most the experience was a good one as they secured the grades they needed to clinch university or college places.

The Academy says that overall post-16 results were by far the best since it opened in 2007, with a 99% pass rate in year 13 and the average grade being the equivalent of a B.

The school’s BTEC results were also hailed as particularly strong with 52% of grades being distinction or distinction* and 99% at least a merit.

For the full story on the A-levels see this Thursday's Romney Marsh edition of the Kentish Express.

Full reports on the GCSE's will be covered in the following edition.
