LPA Sixth Form has started!! - Tuesday 2nd September

An important landmark in the academy's history happened this morning when our first cohort of Year 12 students started their AS studies. A 'welcome' assembly was held in the smart new sixth form common room, new sixth form tutor groups were allocated and then, for the 80 or so students who form our first Year 12, it was off to their first AS lesson of the year.

The new Year 12 students were very impressed with their new common room and study mezzanine above, describing it as 'brilliant', 'really smart' and 'even better than I imagined'. Returning students fresh from their record GCSE results in the summer were also joined by a number of students who left LPA the year before but have now decided to enrol at LPA Sixth Form rather than return to college. If you'd like to enquire about joining the new Sixth Form why not contact the Head of Sixth Form, Mrs Davies, at the academy to arrange a visit?

Record GCSE results - Thursday 21st August

We're delighted to announce that the academy has achieved record GCSE results for the fifth year in a row. Overall 66% of students achieved five higher GCSE grades including English and Maths (up 5% from last year's previous best of 61%). Students and staff have worked incredibly hard to overcome the continual changes that were made to the examination regime whilst this cohort were completing their courses and it's a huge credit to all that results have moved so far forwards again despite this. 

A particular feature of this year's results were the high numbers of A and A* grades (over 500 in total this year) and the eighteen students who achieved at least 8 A or A* grades in their results. A fantastic year group with which to start our new sixth form! Work is nearly complete on our new Sixth Form facilities and many students were able to see their new common room for the first time today, which added to the excitement.

Visita al Parque de Ocio Shaw Ridge

Some Y8s had the opportunity to visit the Leisure Park to make short video clips in Spanish of the work they had completed on DONDE VIVO YO earlier in the term.  They enjoyed showing off their group work in this manner and hope to use it to share with link schools in Nicaragua and Spain.
