“Excellent progress has been made by students from disadvantaged backgrounds as well as those with special educational needs. One of our core aims is to get more girls into engineering and IT, our girls have excelled this year and will be future role models for those choosing STEM careers.

Following on from the excellent Post 16 results last week, and the large number of students being employed in jobs within engineering and IT or going to university, we are delighted. As this is our first year of results, it’s extremely impressive how the UTC is developing. We will be taking our first students from age 11 in September 2017.”

Commenting on 2016 GCSE results, Simon Beamish, Chief Executive of Leigh Academies Trust said: “Our academies’ results this year are simply stunning. Across the board and in a wide range of subjects, scores have risen making this group of Year 11s the most successful on record. The high achievements of staff and students demonstrate the power of formal working across one of the region’s most successful multi-academy trusts. We look forward to welcoming many of our Year 11s back into one of our sixth forms in September.”
