Results & Detinations

A Fantastic First Set of Results at Great Western Academy

Great Western Academy is immensely proud of the A-Level results achieved by our 2021 Year 13 cohort and the destinations they can now progress to, especially in such a disrupted year. This includes two students who have secured places at Oxford and Cambridge and over a third progressing to other Russell Group universities.  GWA Sixth Form students are also progressing on to high calibre apprenticeship programmes with employers including Cranfield Defence and Security/UK Defence Academy, BMW and Barratts Homes.
