Jessie Elbaz, Executive Principal at Nottingham Academy, said:

“Congratulations to our wonderful sixth form pupils on their results; they have worked extremely hard and deserve their success. At Nottingham Academy we strive to develop pupils who are aspirational, and I am delighted that many of them have achieved their goals, which will see the vast majority gaining their first-choice university offer or other training or employment. I wish all our pupils who joined us today every success in their future endeavors.”
