Students at Holyrood Academy in Chard are celebrating an excellent set of A Level results. Headteacher Matthew Collins said ‘we are delighted with our results this year. What is particularly pleasing is that a record number of A* grades were achieved with more than a third of all grades being A* - B grades. These top grades mean some of our students have met the demanding entrance requirements to study at some of the best Universities in the country. We also take great pride at Holyrood in providing opportunities for our students so that they develop into well rounded individuals who are well prepared for later life.’ He went on to say that ‘the results were thoroughly deserved by this group of students and are testament to their attitude and hard work over the last two years. I would also like to thank the teaching staff for the incredible amount of work they have put in to supporting this group of students. We intend to continue to grow the sixth form at Holyrood in the next few years both in terms of the number of students we attract and the number of subjects we can offer and we are very much looking forward to many more successes in the future.'
