Nightingale Academy's new motto of 'Only The Best Will Do' has certainly become a reality after it produced some fantastic  A level results this year.  Nightingale Academy, based in Edmonton and sponsored by AET, has seen its results rise significantly,  with the percentage of students achieving  A*- B grades at A level, including equivalences, hitting an amazing 78%.


Subject areas including Business Studies and ICT Level 3 achieved exceptionally well, with 63% and 66% of students respectively achieving an A* distinction grades. This has enabled all the students on these courses to take up their first choice university places.


But A level success has not only been restricted to the Sixth Form, with all the students who, having taken A level Turkish or Polish two years early, gaining an A grade.  This is in addition to a high number of Year 10 students who again gained A grades in their AS language exams.

Ann Palmer, the principal of Nightingale Academy, stated, 'This is an excellent testament to the hard work of the students and the commitment of staff, parents and governors to moving the academy towards Outstanding.   I am particularly pleased for students like Oraz Horjatova, who having achieved 2 A*, 1 A and 2 B's  at A level, can now move to her first choice place at Westminster University to study Law.  Well done to all of our sixth form students and we wish them the greatest success with their future ambitions.'
