The Archway Learning Trust is incredibly proud of all 362 Year 13 students across Bluecoat Sixth Form, The Nottingham Emmanuel School Sixth Form and The Long Eaton School Sixth Form for their A-Level Results. We wish you all the best for the future!
Bluecoat Sixth Form
Alaina Wood, Head of Sixth Form, said:
I am exceptionally pleased with the results of our Year 13 students. After a difficult two years, they have shown such resilience and determination to overcome the multitude of unprecedented barriers that Covid-19 presented.
It has been an absolute pleasure working with this wonderful year group and today has been a day of celebration. We are thrilled that so many of our students have been placed at their first choice university and degree apprenticeships. Those students who are now exploring their options through clearing have done so with a fantastically mature and measured approach.
Ahead of A-Level Results Day, on Wednesday 17th August, Alaina Wood (Head of Sixth Form), Sarah Hebb (Sixth Form Year Leader), and Year 13 students Justin, Reuben, Blessings, and Tejomayee were interviewed by ITV News Central.

The Nottingham Emmanuel School
Sandra Stapleton, Principal, said:
We are exceptionally proud of our Year 13 students who received their A Level and BTEC results this morning! After not sitting their GCSE exams because of Covid this was their first real experience of a formal exam series, and they have done brilliantly. We have students heading off to universities all over the country as well as students who have secured degree-level apprenticeships, often with fierce competition. A huge thanks to all our students, parents, carers, teachers, and the Sixth Form team for working together over the last two years to deliver the positive outcomes we have seen today. We hope the Year 13 students will keep in touch and hopefully inspire some of our younger students to follow in their footsteps in the future!
