A Level Results – August 2018
A levels summer 2018
This summer’s results reflect a successful outcome for our students and their teachers. The progress made by students has enabled them to celebrate individual and collective successes with students going on to a range of university courses and apprenticeships. Our students are accepting places at Oxford to read Music, Cambridge to read Natural Sciences and in addition we have several students reading Medicine and Dentistry. Two students are attending Music Conservatoires with fellow students following other subjects ranging from Law to teaching, Health and Social Care to Engineering, Mathematics through to Fashion.
The number of top grades, A* and A grades and vocational equivalents, are in line with national averages whilst the pass rate for grades A* to E was significantly above. The top grade, A*, was achieved across a range of subjects including Biology, Chemistry, English Literature, Food, Law, Mathematics, PE and RS highlighting a strength in depth. Similar success was enjoyed by students following vocational courses in Business and Hospitality & Catering, for example.
Several of our students are able to follow their lifelong ambitions with one student taking up her place with the RAF and another pursuing her international gymnastic career, confident that she can fall back if necessary on some impressive A level results.
“These results are highly pleasing and reflect a successful outcome for our students and their teachers. Curriculum and assessment changes have made it difficult to predict results but for our part our students have exceeded expectations as reflected in their excellent progress.”
