80 students will now move on to MA.16, the sixth form at Merchants’ Academy.

Head of Merchants’ Academy Secondary, Vicki Starkie, said: “We are pleased and proud of the GCSE results achieved by our students after such a challenging couple of years. Merchants’ Academy has seen some outstanding individual results. We are delighted that our school’s overall performance in English and Maths is up on last year and that there is no significant difference between the results of those who come from financially disadvantaged backgrounds and those who do not. We wish all our young people well as they move on to the next step in education, training or employment.”

Merchants’ Academy and MA.16. are part of Venturers Trust, which is sponsored by the Society of Merchant Venturers and the University of Bristol.
