17 August 2018
Thursday 16th august 2018 marked the end of an era for LSA Technology and Performing Arts Sixth Form College. The last A-Level students gathered one last time at the college to collect their results, celebrate their success and say a final goodbye. The Sixth Form opened in September 2015 by the previous Headteacher (Mr Woods) and provided a wonderful opportunity for students in this part of the Fylde and particularly for students attending LSA High school. The difficult decision to close the Sixth Form was confirmed early in 2017 however what remains is an excellent high school.
Mr Hall, Head of the Sixth Form, said ”The students have worked so hard for their grades and have been part of an excellent provision. While knowing these were our last post-16 students, they have contributed to school life brilliantly and have been a joy to work with."
Everyone is delighted that the hard work of students and staff has paid off, the overwhelming majority of our students will be moving onto their first choice university place or into the world of work. We wish our students every success next year and thank them for their contributions to the Sixth Form.
Mr Baker said: “We are very proud of all of our students and staff. The percentage of students achieving A or A* has risen considerably with double the amount of top grades awarded, when compared to performance in 2016. Some of the performances were exceptional and are just reward for hard work, dedication and commitment. This particular cohort, our last at LSA following the decision to close the sixth form, have been an excellent advert for our school and we clearly wish them all the very best of luck at university.”
