Students and teachers at Sutton Community Academy are celebrating the school's best ever A-level results.
David Mackey, principal, said “I am delighted that the efforts of our students in sixth form have been rewarded with a fantastic set of results. The collaboration of the ‘golden triangle’ with our hard working students, exceptional staff and supportive parents and carers has resulted in this successful day. These students will continue to be successful, confident and ambitious in the next stages of their education which is what our ethos aspires for our students. I wish them all the best in the future as they join our illustrious alumni.”
Abbie Rowson, aged 18, will study Law at De Montfort University in Leicester, after achieving a B and two D grades. Abbie took her A-levels in law, computer science and media studies.
Abbie said: "I'm happy with my grades, and it was a lot of hard work."
Lucy Rickers, 18, will study law at the University of Lincoln, after achieving an A in law, a B in sociology and a B in English.
Lucy said: "I got an A in the law as level last year and I felt the pressure to keep it up so I'm glad I got an A. It was hard work studying but once I got into the exam I knew what I was doing."
Of the 34 students who received their A-Level results today, all are set to go to embark on further studies at university, start an apprenticeship or enter into a full time job. Many of these students continue to break barriers and are the first in their family to attend university.
Vince Green, regional education director for the Academy Transformation Trust said “We are pleased with our students’ results at Sutton Community Academy in both A-level and vocational subjects. These reflect the hard work and commitment of students and staff at the academy. We wish all of our young people well in the next stage of their education or employment.” ... See MoreSee Less

All students are safe following an incident today, with an intruder gaining access to the academy grounds. Police were called and the academy instigated lockdown procedures as previously rehearsed. Student behaviour was exemplary throughout, and the incident was quickly resolved. ... See MoreSee Less
Happy to hear the matter was dealt with well.......and promptly.
Thank goodness we have all been given lockdown training! Pleased everyone is safe
Well done to the school for dealing with it so quickly
Well done to academy staff for your swift response & well done students for handling the situation maturely. I'm glad everyone is ok.
Why are people laughing! Can't see anything funny about an incident like this ...
Well done to the staff for acting quickly and ensuring our children were safe, however the post is a little bit vague was someone arrested? I mean was this an isolated incident should we be worried, are there chances of attempted repeat incidents I think as a parent the post is reassuring in one sense but also extremely concerning in another.
I'm so glad my son was on the other side of the school but he's bin told that Mr mackey threw a chair at the intruder to stop him getting further into the school knowing my children are safe at school is paramount and knowing that the staff will put them self's in harms way to protect them is amazing
that school is going down hill rapidly the cant even tackle bullying properly and now something like that .... what next ? suprised they still open
Glad everyone is safe
This school is getting worse it's about time they fenced it of completely all down the rap and car park on front

REWARDS EVENING 2019
Sutton Community Academy proudly presented students with numerous awards in their annual awards ceremony last week. Staff, students and families gathered to share in the celebrations recognising the successes of our students this year. Academic excellence awards were given to winners and runners up in year 7-10 to recognise students whose work and class contributions are outstanding and whose efforts are consistently high in a variety of subjects.
The ‘Academy Champion’ award was given to recognise the extracurricular activities that students embrace such as their sporting contributions or participation in the arts. The leaders of learning and achievement presented students with the ‘Resilience Award’ to recognise the challenges and difficulties some of our students face in their personal lives but who remain positive, showing spirit and tenacity.
Our pastoral award ‘SCA Exemplary Character’ was given to students who consistently show compassion, support and kindness to others. The ‘inspirational Award’ was awarded to students who have scored the highest points in a school points rewards system, the system rewards those who daily meet basic expectations, having good attendance, punctuality and behaviour. With the community being at the heart of the academy we have a ‘SCA Community Award’ this is awarded to students who contribute to the wider community whether it be fundraising, cadets, being a young carer or part of the WE team.
New for this year were two sixth form awards the ‘sixth form ambassador’ for being a great role model for other students in their work, attitude, behaviour, & extra-curricular activities; and ‘Post 16 excellence’ for outstanding progress and achievement.
During the evening, we presented several students with their bronze ‘Duke of Edinburgh’ award and saw a presentation of their final expedition and their journey to achieving this award. We invited Lizzie Saunders who currently studies in our sixth form; to be our inspirational speaker for the evening. She shared with us her journey, how she has travelled to a variety of countries representing Great Britain in Ice Hockey, her message was to never give up, that resilience is rewarded and to always believe in yourself.
Finally David Mackey, Principal, awarded the ‘student of the year’ award to students in each year group who role model our academy ethos, they are SUCCESSFUL, CONFIDENT and AMBITIOUS. Highlighting and thanking parents and families for their constant support and reiterating how extremely proud we are of them all.
The evening was very heartwarming, and at times emotional, it was wonderful to see so many proud parents, students and staff sharing, reflecting and celebrating all the fantastic opportunities and events that have happened this year at Sutton Community Academy. ... See MoreSee Less
