The results are based on centre assessed grades submitted by the school which have been subjected to a process of moderation by Ofqual, the independent qualifications regulator.
On celebrating the results – Jonty Archibald, Principal of Global Academy said:
For some – this marks the end of a very special four year journey as the original students in Year 10 when the school opened in 2016. During the two or four years here at the Academy – our students have worked with a wide range of industry partners including Global, BBC, Sky, Dentsu Aegis, Government Communication Services, IMG Studios, Mediacom, London Live, BBC Studios and many more – landing work experience placements, mentoring, guest workshops and industry focused training alongside their studies.
Our students are preparing for long lasting careers in the creative industries and for many – the results will kick start their journey into the industry. Eight of our students have secured apprenticeship roles for Global within the radio programming, content production, advertising and Outdoor teams.
For Narveer Toor, from Hayes – the Academy helped her secure a Degree apprenticeship within the Marketing Department at the BBC in Salford.
Our successful results have allowed many students to secure places at some of the most prestigious creative further education institutions including University of Arts London, Leeds Art University, Ravensbourne, LMA, Fashion Retail Academy, BIMM and many more.
