Students at The King Alfred School Academy in Highbridge, Somerset are celebrating another year of outstanding GCSE results.

The Year 11 students are celebrating today after some incredible results and remarkable individual performances.

Despite the difficulties of the past two academic years, which affected many weeks of face-to-face learning, the students excelled themselves in their summer assessments and are now preparing for post 16 further education courses and training.

Many of them are staying on at TKASA to go to their high-flying and expanding school-based Sixth Form.

Maksymilian Mroczkowski secured two Grade 9s, seven Grade 8s, one Distinction, and one Grade 6.

And Darragh Joyce achieved five Grade 9s, four Grade 8s, and one Grade 7.

Acting Principal at TKASA Dan Milford said: “We are incredibly proud of the achievements of our Year 11 students after what has been such a challenging two years for them. 

“They have shown tremendous resilience, determination and maturity toward their studies throughout the last two years and all the staff at the academy wish them all the best for the future. 

“Obviously, we look forward to seeing may of them stay on at TKASA to study A level courses with us from September. We couldn’t be more proud of all of them.”
