"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."
