Power cut fails to dim the bright sparks at Academy
THERE were celebrations amid the chaos of a power cut as students of Fallibroome Academy received their A-level results.
The school was left in the dark during most of the morning as an underground cable fault affected almost 500 properties in the town.
The school saw every single one of its students pass with an impressive 60 per cent achieving grades A* to B, while 87 per cent scored A* to C.
A total 21 students achieved three or more A and A* grades in all their examinations.
The roll of honour includes: Clara Boothby, Katie Bower, Laura Brunt, Holly Burton, Alexandra Davies, Katie Downes, James Florence, Mark Gough, Aaron Grant, Liam Hadfield, Tobias Halsey, Annabel Kite, Philippa Lloyd, Thomas Payne, Daniella Schutze, Sam Smith, Charlotte Spencer, Xian Voon, Georgia Williams, Zoe Williamson and Celyn Wynn-Griffiths. Sam Smith will study medicine at St John’s College Cambridge and Daniella Schutze will read German at Worcester College Oxford.
Principal Peter Rubery said: “This has been a great year with 100 per cent of students achiev- ing A-level passes and a significant number achieving the very demanding award of the A* grade.
“We have continued to maintain excellent results which pay testament to the hard work of a terrific group of students and the dedication of their teachers.”
