Continuing on the success of recent years, the Academy achieved a 100% pass rate with students securing places at universities including Exeter, to read Joint Honours in English and History, Manchester for Business and Economics and Reading for Business Management with a placement year. The IBCP Diploma has also opened up opportunities for students to take up apprenticeships, such as in Education Support, prior to a degree in Education and Actuarial Services.
The IBCP is an innovative education programme tailored to students who want to focus on career-related learning. Over the past two years, students studied a range of different subjects including Anthropology, Visual Arts and Financial Studies and also completed a Reflective project and Community Service Learning.
Commenting on this years’ results, Acting Principal, Hannah Knowles said: “We are very proud of the achievements of all our Year 13 students, especially under these extraordinary circumstances. The IBCP includes a large percentage of coursework, alongside aspects such as Reflective project, and Community Service Learning, which has meant our students have been rewarded for their individual achievements, even though they were unable to sit their exams. We would like to wish all our Year 13 leavers the very best as they progress onto their next steps”.
