IKB Academy in Keynsham is celebrating a hugely successful first set of A-level results.

The school, which has a STEM specialism, is delighted that students have achieved highly in both the academic and vocational qualifications across the full range of science, technology, engineering and maths subject areas. 

IKB students achieved a 100% pass rate in all the A-level science subjects and a 100% pass rate in the Level 3 Btec Engineering qualification, where almost 50% of students gained a double Distinction* (equivalent to two A* grades at A level). A-level Product Design also saw a 100% pass rate.

79% of students at the school, which opened two years ago and is part of the Wellsway Multi Academy Trust, gained at least one top grade (A* or A or equivalent) and impressively 58% gained at least two of these top grades. 

Debbie Gibbs, Principal, said: “These results firmly place IKB on the map as a learning institution where excellence in the areas of science, technology, engineering and maths can be achieved. Most importantly these results give our students the opportunity to follow their dreams to study at university and on high quality apprenticeships,” continued Debbie. This has been our first group of students and we will miss them, but know that the results they have gained at IKB along with their work placement experiences will equip them well for the next stage of their lives. We wish them all the very best of luck.”
