Boston Spa Academy Sixth Form

Mr Brennan – Director of 6th Form, Assistant Principal

We were immensely proud of the progress our students made in 2018. Our results saw us achieve a Level 3 Value Added score of 0.27 and move into the top 10% of sixth form providers nationally and 3rd overall in Leeds. In addition, 43% of our university applicants achieved places at Russell Group universities, including one student to read History at Oxford. We have consolidated our place as one of the leading sixth form providers in the region and look forward to further success in 2019.

At Boston Spa Academy we are committed to holding students accountable to the highest academic expectations and in turn deliver high quality teaching and support in order to ensure all our students achieve and exceed their potential.

We are excited about our partnership with Elliott Hudson College, opening as Elliott Hudson College at Boston Spa in September 2019. We look forward to the opportunities this will bring our students as we continue our journey in consolidating our place as a leading academic sixth form provider locally and nationally. For further information please do not hesitate to contact me on ehc@bostonspa.leeds.sch.uk. I look forward to hearing from you.
