Our Year 13 students have yet again achieved the A Level results they needed to meet their university and career aspirations. Overall the school achieved a 96% A2 pass rate, an excellent result for a larger than average Year 13 cohort.
Dr Welch, was on site today to congratulate students and wish them well with their future endeavours; “It is wonderful to see our Sixth Form leavers so excited about all that the future holds for them following their A Levels. Of course, we are sad to see them go, but we are immensely proud of their achievements and look forward to hearing about their future success.”
Theo Woko who joined the school in Year 3, gained AAB grades in Biology, Chemistry and Mathematics, securing his place to read Biochemistry at Russell Group university, The University of Manchester. Dr Welch is delighted with Theo’s achievement and has a particular soft spot for his university choice; “I had a fantastic time as an undergraduate at Manchester. With its excellent facilities and teaching—not to mention its cultural and leisure opportunities—it is a terrific destination for Theo and I am sure he will make the most of it.”
Nearly half of the school’s Year 13 cohort took Economics and Business A-Level with all achieving grade C or above, meeting or surpassing their predicted grades. Director of Studies and Head of Economics and Business, Mrs Catherine Redfern, is delighted with the results; “This subject provides all candidates with an excellent grounding for the future world of work, even appealing to budding entrepreneurs such as student Mark Rumble, who achieved an A grade and is now establishing his own business.”
