We are delighted with a fantastic set of A-Level results this year. 53% A*-B grades – a 16% increase on last year’s results. In terms of progress, these are the best results we have ever had, placing us in the top 20% of sixth forms nationally. 78% of students achieved A*-B grades in Physics, 50% in Maths and 100% in Further Maths. Now our Science and Maths outcomes are competing with our great Arts results.
Around half of our students have been accepted onto courses at Russell Group Universities, including Warwick and Bristol, studying a range of courses such as Law, Biochemistry and English Literature. It is a great testimony to their hard work and the support and commitment of the Sixth Form staff.
Particular mentions go to Poppy Pierce, who achieved A*AAA. She will be volunteering in medical centres and hospitals in Ghana during a gap year before embarking on a degree in Medicine. Stuart Carrion-Rivas achieved ABB and secured his first choice university place at Bristol to study Aerospace Engineering. Vadiya Kirby achieved ABBC and will study Mechanical Engineering at Bath. Enes Sahin achieved ABB and will study Physics at Kings College. Karishma Kaur achieved ABB and will study Biomedical Science at Kings College.
We are extremely proud of all our sixth formers today and wish them happiness and success as they start university in September.
