Nightingale Academy wishes to celebrate the success of all its students and the hard work and commitment they have shown throughout the year.

We have overcome the barrier of 64% of our students having English as an additional language and have achieved an amazing 67% of A-C passes in English and 49% in Maths and Science.

We have an array of success stories to celebrate and shout about: Our top A level performers are:

  •   Marcus (Yr 13)
  •   Antonino (Yr 13)
  •   Joseph (Yr 13)

All of which have exceptionally well and have achieved 3 or more A2 levels at A*-B or equivalent. Over 20 students have been offered places at university with some listed below; Hertfordshire, Loughborough, London Met, Surrey, Middlesex, City, Bedfordshire and Greenwich.

Our success stories at GCSE and BTEC achievements are the number of students who achieved A* - A‘s in a range of subjects:

The following students achieved 7 and above A*- A in all their subjects:

  •  Sammer (Yr 11)
  •  Mohamed (Yr 11)
  •  Leanne Riley (Yr 11)
  •  Thivya (Yr 11)
  •  Abdul (Yr 11)
  •  Maryam (Yr 11)

 There have also been many inspirational stories not necessarily about grades, with students overcoming a range of barriers to achieve their dreams:

One student joined Nightingale Academy on 11th March 2013.  He came to the UK from Sierra Leone to live with his parents.  When he joined the school he spoke no English and had no experience of the British school system.  Through hard work and determination he has developed his confidence and language skills resulting in six D grades at GCSE, including English Language and Literature, as well as two passes in BTEC Level 2 sports and science.'

 A visually impaired student, who has never allowed her disability to hold her back. She has really worked hard and achieved 7 A-C grades today.

The staff students and parents of Nightingale Academy will continue to work together to ensure the best possible outcomes for our students.
