Exam Results 2020

At Mildenhall College Academy we’re proud of the success of our students. We believe that we create a climate in which all students can achieve and we provide the motivation for continuing the drive for better and higher standards in order to prepare them well for the next stage in their lives. When our Sixth Form students leave us, we know they’ll be well equipped for achieving yet more success.
