CCA Sixth Form celebrates excellent and improved Results!

 24% of students achieved A* to B Grades, up 2% from 2014

57% of students achieved A*-C grades up 10% from 2014

99% of students achieved passes, up 3% from 2014

A Level points per candidate: 672, up 140 points from 2014

Diploma points per candidate: 594 equaled the superb results from last year.

Students and staff at the Clacton Coastal Academy Sixth Form celebrated a year of excellent and improved A Level and Diploma results.  An excellent 99% of students achieved passes, while the average A level grade went up by over half a grade.  Average A Level points increased by a massive 140 points.  The average Diploma grade achieved by CCA students was nothing less than a Distinction – which is superb!  

This represents a significant level of achievement and it has opened the door for many to University education and employment. 50 students have accepted their first place offers at universities, including some of the best in the region and country.

CCA Sixth Form staff had additional reason for celebration.  Staff who were teaching brand new qualifications actually took the examinations themselves.  While some have not had their results yet, we can disclose that Mrs Fry’s was particularly pleased with her A Grade in AS Level Creative Writing! 

Principal Tracey Hemming said: “The drive for improvement and academic success at CCA is continuous and is reflected in these results. Our students are always aspiring to be the best they can and this is reflected in the results today. There are many well deserved successes to celebrate and many students well prepared for the next part of their educational journey. I, the governors and the staff at CCA couldn’t be more proud of them.”  

Some particular successes were:

Harry King achieved an A Grade in mathematics and C Grades in Law and in history.  Harry will study Mathematics at The University of Essex.

Matthew Maunder achieved B Grades in Mathematics and Physics and C Grades in History and ICT.  Matthew aims to study Astrophysics at the University of York.  

Daniel Duggan achieved an A Grade in his extended project and B grades in English and Politics.  Daniel also achieved a Distinction* in Performing Arts and a Distinction in Law.  He hopes to study Politics at the University of Nottingham before a post graduate law course at the London School of Economics. Daniel believes in aiming for the best and hopes to one day be an Intellectual Property Lawyer.

Three students achieved triple distinctions in the health and social care extended diplomas – this is the equivalent to three A Level A Grades.  Demi Barcus, Rhiannon Chappell and Kayleigh Grantham were delighted with their results and will now move on to pursue careers in accountancy, teaching and health care.

We would like to wish all of our students the very best of luck with their studies, university places and employment.  We are proud of all of our students and the contributions they have made to the Sixth Form over the last two years.
