Examinations

Congratulations to all our Sixth Form and GCSE students - a fantastic set of results - we are very proud of you all

Year 13

Year 13 students had much to celebrate as they collected their A Levels results.

• 16% of all A levels taken were graded A* or A; the gold standard A* grade was achieved by students in Maths, English Literature, Chemistry, Psychology, Sociology & Business.

• 44% were graded A*- B.

• 75% of all BTEC taken were graded ‘Distinction* or Distinction’ (equivalent to A*/A at A level).

• 24 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.

• 98% of Year 13 succeeded in gaining a place at University; many meeting challenging offer targets at prestigious universities. All of those not moving onto higher education have succeeded in gaining employment or an apprenticeship – many having already taken up their positions.

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

We are extremely proud to announce an outstanding set of A level exam results from our Sixth Form students.
