Ian Cleland, Chief Executive Officer at Academy Transformation Trust commented: “The Trust is delighted that the Post-16 performance in our academies has continued to improve student outcomes. It is impressive to see once again the vocational progress in our academies has continued at distinction-plus level, which outperforms overall national outcomes. Our academies have responded well to the increased challenge of new A-Level examinations and have maintained or improved their average grades which has enabled The Trust overall to close the gap with national performance.”
