Year 13

Congratulations to Year 13, who have achieved a truly outstanding set of A level results; the best ever.

• 23% of all A Levels taken were graded A* or A; the gold standard A* grade was achieved by students in fourteen subjects, but a special mention must go to our Mathematics students who achieved 7 A*s in Mathematics & 3 in Further Mathematics.

• 53% of all A Levels were graded A*- B, a rise of 10%. 57% of all Level 3 courses were graded A*-B equivalent.

• 95% of all BTEC Level 3 qualifications taken were graded ‘Distinction* or Distinction’ (equivalent to A*/A at A level).

• 35 students gained A*/A in the Extended Project Qualification [requiring in depth research, analysis and presentation of results on a topic of their choice]; the qualification is considered excellent preparation for undergraduate study.

It is always difficult to single out individual achievements, but the following students have succeeded in gaining quite remarkable results:

GCSE Results 2016

Congratulations to all our Year 11 students - a fantastic set of results - we are very proud of you all.

* The remaining 50% will continue their studies predominantly at local colleges of further education or via apprenticeships with a range of national and local employers.

Once again with hard work and determination there is no limit to what they can achieve; we wish them all the very best.

 

We are extremely proud to announce an outstanding set of A level exam results from our Sixth Form students. As the number of top grades awarded fell nationally, the number of A* and A grades achieved by our students rose again. 16 students achieved at least one ‘Gold Standard’ A* grade, with Lauren Slade achieving 4 A*s, Becky Leverett achieving 3 A*s and Alex Becalick achieving 2 A*s.

Our students following vocational courses also achieved outstanding results, with 87% of all BTEC Level 3 grades being either Distinction* or Distinction (equivalent to A* and A at A level).
