The Ilfracombe Academy came together last night at their annual Academic Excellence Awards Evening to celebrate the successes of the highest achieving students in this year’s public examinations.
Over 60 students were rewarded for academic excellence in their GCSE, AS and A2 exams. The evening was also marked by flawless musical performances from students Noah Turner and Jacob Overney.
In a year when the education system saw so many changes and exam results were reported in the national press as “volatile”, “unpredictable” and a “shock for schools”, Headteacher Sharon Marshall praised the students’ courage and resilience. The Ilfracombe Academy has enjoyed its best ever results over the last 2 years and this year saw the A Level pass rate rise to 99.5%. All students were successfully placed in universities with 3 students gaining places at either Oxford or Cambridge.
Congratulations to all students who achieved Academic Excellence in 2013-14.
