A-level joy for students at New Charter Academy


A-level students at New Charter Academy have been celebrating, once again, as the sixth form achieved another excellent set of results site in this summer’s examinations.

Pride of place goes to five of the many students whose results have equipped them to move on to higher education: Adele Stott (ABB) will be heading to The University of Manchester to read Optometry, Mariyah Bashir (AABB) has secured a place at the University of Bradford starting a Foundation degree in Clinical Sciences, Soyful Alam ((ABB) will be attending The University of Manchester to read Psychology, Bobbie Thompson (BBC) goes to Liverpool University to read Psychology and Hamza Ali (AAB) will be studying Pharmacology at the University of Manchester.

Adele Stott who was thrilled with her results says, “I achieved better than I expected and I’m really grateful to all the staff that have shown me support and patience to gain the results I wanted.”

Fellow student Bobbie Thompson, who also achieved fantastic results, comments, “All my hard work has paid off. I feel like I’m dreaming as I didn’t think I’d get there. It has been a journey of self-proof for me and proves with the right attitude you can get there.”

Principal David Shaw was delighted with the class of 2015 who have built upon the academy’s recent successes: “I am delighted with the results the students have achieved with the support of our dedicated staff. We have achieved an overall pass rate at A-level of 97% with more than a quarter of our students achieving A*-B grades. These results reinforce why Ofsted identified the sixth form as ‘good’ during a recent inspection. However, most importantly our students have developed the skills, qualities and now results to ensure they progress into the University of their choice.”

Helen Lister, Head of the Academy’s sixth form, was equally thrilled. She added: “I am so pleased for all of our students. 100% of the students can take up a university place if they so wish, with offers at many top universities. Our students have been amazing role models for the younger students, proving that if you want to do well and work hard enough, you can go on to study medicine, optometry, law, history, teaching, nursing, etc… I look forward to welcoming back the class of 2015 in the near future to share their inspirational stories of further success with our younger students.”
