Anisha Bi: six A grades and five A* grades;

Francesca Martino: three A* grades, seven A grades and one B grade;

Marney Dawson: four A* grades, five A grades and two B grades;

Amy Penny: five A* grades and seven A grades;

Andy O’Brien, Principal of Accrington Academy, said: “I am very pleased for all our students celebrating their results today, which consolidate our increase from last year.

“There have been some excellent individual successes and I know that every one of them has worked extremely hard to achieve these results.

“I would also like to thank staff, who have played a crucial part in ensuring the success of our students and who I’m sure will join me in wishing everyone well for the future.

“In particular, we look forward to welcoming many of our students back in September, who will join us at our growing, rapidly improving Sixth Form.”
