Sara Billins, Principal of North Oxfordshire Academy, said:


Massive congratulations to all our students celebrating today; they have achieved some excellent results which are a just reward for their determination and hard work over the course of their studies. Likewise, thanks are due to all our staff whose tireless efforts and support of students has made all the difference in our success today.


I am absolutely delighted that we have seen such a significant improvement in our headline measure and I am confident that this upward trend will be reflected again in our results next summer, as the academy continues to make progress. Today’s results also follow some excellent A Level success last week, which saw our first student secure a place at Oxbridge.”
