Hard-working A-level students at Melton Vale Post-16 (MV16) Centre are jumping for joy today after another record-breaking year of success.
The Burton Road centre has improved on last year’s record-breaking number of A* grades at A-level, with MV16 again expecting to be one of the highest performing sixth forms in Leicestershire.
Head of centre Kirstie Black said: “Once again I’m delighted with this set of results.
“Year on year our students work incredibly hard and there’s nothing more rewarding for them than to reap the rewards of their study and gain a place at their university of choice.
“I’m very proud of each and every single achievement and look forward to celebrating the success later in the year at our presentation evening.”
Also celebrating today are staff and students at Syston’s Wreake Valley Academy, with students once again achieving a 100 per cent pass rate at A-level and a quarter of candidates achieving an A or A* grade in the subjects of economics, maths, geography and history.
Head of sixth form Su Peters said: “The results are just reward for the hard work that students have put in over the last two years.”
Principal Tony Pinnock added: “I’m thrilled for our students.
“This year we’ve seen an increase in the numbers choosing to follow apprenticeships rather than university courses, and this shows how well the school is preparing youngsters to meet the needs of industry.”
