Students from The Littlehampton Academy are celebrating some excellent exam results this morning.  

70% of students entered achieved a standard pass or better in English, and 60% achieved a standard pass in Maths.  A standard pass, Grade 4, is broadly similar to the old grade C.  47% of students entered achieved a ‘strong’ pass or better in English.  

Principal Morgan Thomas said:

“We are extremely pleased with how our students have performed - especially given that these are the new, tougher GCSEs and this is the first time that they have been sat.  Students, parents and staff have come together well to face the challenges of a new exam system and we are very proud of the achievements of our young people.”

This is the first year that the new GCSE grades will be issued in English and Maths, with 9-1 replacing A*-G for those two subjects.  Other subjects will still be graded under the A*-G system this year.  

Individual success stories include Angelina Ainslie and Oakley Evans, who both achieved a grade 9 in maths and English. This is a fantastic achievement and something which relatively few students in England will manage this year.*  Angelina also achieved a grade 8, four A*s and and two grade As.  Kelly Jones achieved six A*s, one grade 9, and two grade 8s.  

Director of Learning for Key Stage 4, Katie Ridgway said:

“We have worked hard to ensure that our Year 11 students were well equipped to succeed in these new and more rigorous exams.  The results that we celebrate today are testament to how well our students have done and we look forward to welcoming them into our successful Sixth Form in a few weeks’ time.”

Two TLA students are off to Oxford University this September following their outstanding success at A level.  Frank Nightingale, who achieved three A* grades and two A grades, will be studying Chemistry at Merton College, Oxford University.  Will Lloyd, who achieved two A* grades and an A, will be studying History and Politics at St Catherine's College, Oxford. 


The A level pass rate this year was again 100% at TLA, with nearly a quarter of these grades being A* or A - a 5% improvement on last year’s results.  42% of the grades awarded were A*-B - a superb achievement.  


Principal, Morgan Thomas, said:

“Our sixth form students have worked extremely hard this year and these efforts have been rewarded by a great set of results.  The proportion of students achieving top grades has increased and I would like to thank students, parents and staff for their tremendous efforts in making this happen.”

Director of Learning for Key Stage 5, Matt Sealby said:

“This clearly shows that the TLA Sixth Form is an excellent place to study where hard work and determination will be rewarded. We are absolutely thrilled that two of our students are off to Oxford this year.  Our students are now well equipped for higher education and employment and we wish them every success in their future careers.”
