Corrine Woraker secured a double distinction* in Btec performing arts and a distinction* in music, securing her a place at one of the country’s highly competitive universities in the performing arts field, University of Wales, Trinity St David to study acting.

Oliver Cooke achieved a distinction* in IT, personal and business finance and business studies and is looking to work with a major bank in London, while Eleanor Cruickshank achieved a distinction* in performing arts (dance) and personal and business finance and a B in A-level art (photography), securing a place at Writtle College to study photography.

Both Trenica King, Headteacher at New Rickstones Academy and John Szynal, Principal at Maltings Academy are delighted with this year’s results and the hard work of students. They wish to thank the staff who worked with them.
