Mounts Bay Academy students, parents and staff are celebrating a fantastic set of exam results with almost 70% of all students gaining 5A*-C including English and Maths making 2015 yet another record-breaking year. The headline figure has increased by a pleasing 8% since 2014 which was already the 8th successive year of ‘best ever’ results in the school’s history. There are some remarkable individual performances with the Head Boy, Ben George and Head Girl, Eleanor Peters gaining 25 A* and As between them. Both are heading to Truro and Penwith College to take ‘A’ levels and have aspirations to move into careers in medicine and law respectively.
Other noteworthy achievements include Lois Evans gaining a grade A at AS level in Art producing huge, eye-catching canvasses and beautiful portfolios. Also a group of Year 9 students opted to take an immersive GCSE French course in a year and the vast majority gained an A* or A with Lamorna Tregenza Reid achieving full marks for all the exams and coursework.
Nearly all our Year 11 students will be leaving the Academy to begin the next stage of their educational journey with 10 or more GCSEs as well as an array of leadership qualifications including scores of students gaining a Duke of Edinburgh Award at Bronze or Silver level, an Arts Award Leadership qualification at Bronze, Silver or Gold level and a Sports Leadership Award.
We also say goodbye to talented sportsmen and women including the Cornish U16 hockey and football champions and some great musicians who have auditions for Britain’s Got Talent.
A delighted Mrs Davey said “I would like to congratulate everyone involved in our 2015 cohort. Once again our students’ leave us with not just great academic profiles, but fantastic employability skills and a broad range of leadership experiences that ensure that Mounts Bay students will always continue to stand out from the crowd.”
