Power cut fails to dim the bright sparks at Academy

Macclesfield Express - - BAU LSEIVNELS SRESULTS ROUND- UP -

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.”
