Principal, Tony Searle, said, "This is the first year in the history of any school on this site that more than 60% of students have met the government threshold for GCSE qualifications including English and maths.
"This represents an increase of eight percentage points on our previous record high.
"The fantastic work ethic of the staff and students at the Academy along with our culture of 'Ready to Learn' have contributed significantly to this success.
"It's great to be able to celebrate these results in a year when we are oversubscribed into Year 7 for the first time. "We are looking forward to doing even greater things over the coming year."
Students Jakub Trybull, Corey Gibbons, Sarah-Louise Weston and Emma Page recieved the top marks at the Academy achieving 13 grade 9's and seven distinction stars between them.
