Staff at Macmillan Academy are today celebrating with last year’s Year 11 students as they receive their exam results. As we wave you off for a well-deserved summer break, we couldn't miss this chance to express our admiration for each and every one of you.



These students have had a considerable amount of disruption to their studies and they have shown determination and resilience to ensure that they received the results that they deserve. Alongside the students’ hard work, staff at the academy and parents/carers have all played their part in contributing to today’s results. Mr King (Deputy Headteacher: Assessment) has worked very closely with the year group - “It has been an absolute pleasure to work with Year 11 in the build up to the summer examinations - the students have risen to the occasion and should be proud of their achievements. This year has been a real team effort and I’m sure students will agree that they could not have done it without the incredible support from teachers, the pastoral team and parents / guardians at home.”

Mr Ball (Head of Key Stage 4) echoed these sentiments, urging the students to “celebrate their achievements today and to look forward to building on these from the beginning of September.”
