Speaking about the results, Al Yasmina Academy Principal, Jared Nolan, commented: “Our students across the board continue to impress and set new levels of achievements; it is nothing short of remarkable.
“Preparing for exams is a stressful time for students, so for everybody to get these results under difficult circumstances during Covid is absolutely outstanding. Each and every student is a credit to themselves and their families for the way they have prepared for these exams and got the results to match their hard work.”
Al Yasmina Academy’s Head of Secondary, Jennie Kellett, added: “As a school our aim is to ensure all students thrive and the outstanding attainment and progress, by our early entry exam students, has shown that despite the very challenging circumstances over the past year they have excelled in all areas. None of this would have been possible without an outstanding team of teachers, the dedication and resilience of students and the support of their parents. With outstanding attitudes and a passion for learning we could not be prouder of all our students who are receiving exam results today.”
