Sixth Form Success for Dyke House Academy - Northern Education Trust


Students, Staff and Governors at Dyke House Academy are again celebrating the success of their sixth form students after the A-level results were released today.

Dyke House Academy is one of ten secondary academies operated by Northern Education Trust (NET), a multi-academy trust, which has a growing reputation for improving schools through a combination of strong, visionary leadership, high quality teaching and learning and highly effective governance.

The impact of this combination is very evident in the Dyke House A-level results. For example, outcomes in Mathematics, Humanities, PE, Computing and English Literature were particularly strong with a number of students gaining top grades at A-Level.

Additionally, many students who hope to go on to higher education have met or exceeded their offers allowing them to gain access to the UK's best universities.

Within these results, there are some outstanding individual performances: Morgan McKay gained 2A*s and 2 A grades. He is going to York University, to study Computer Science. Adam Brown gained 3A*s and 1B, and is going to Durham University to study Psychology. Ben Hall gained 3As and 1B, and is going to Durham University to study Biological Sciences.

Mr. Adam Palmer, Acting Principal:

"I want to congratulate the students and their parents for a fantastic set of results. We are all extremely proud of the hard work and dedication they have demonstrated in order to achieve these results. As an academy we are proud that the students will leave well equipped for University or employment. We are also delighted that we have continued to support students that have ambitions to study abroad, with Ben Bailey and Amy Sutheran heading off to the USA to begin their golf scholarships"

Mr. Andrew Jordon, Executive Principal is delighted to offer his congratulations and thanks to his teaching staff and students for the dedication and commitment they have shown:

'Results like these, which demonstrate strong year-on-year improvement, make all the hard work worthwhile. It is so gratifying to have played a part in helping our excellent students gain life changing outcomes. Our 2018 A-level results are further proof of the Trusts growing reputation for providing the best in sixth form education."
