Manshead CE Academy, Dunstable, is celebrating after over 55% of A level students achieved “top flight” grades “A*-B”, including nearly a quarter of students who topped that with “A*-A” results.

This is the Academy’s first set of results as part of the Diocese of St Albans Multi-Academy Trust.

Outcomes across all measures have surpassed previous performance. The Trust’s Chief Education Officer, Charlotte Johnson, commented: “The Academy is deservedly celebrating these achievements which are a significant improvement on earlier years’ results. Staff and students have worked incredibly hard for these results. The Diocese of St Albans Multi-Academy Trust is committed to ensuring that all students are able to flourish and achieve their full potential. We are very proud of these results and the fact that our 99% pass rate embraces both A level and Vocational/Technical subjects.”
