A Level Results 2016

We had a triumphant results day where students finally got the rewards that I had been promising them. This time last year I wrote with news of ambitious targets for both Year 12 and Year 13. I suggested that Year 12 would strive to achieve 50% A* to B and Year 13 45% A* to B. Well, we got pretty close! Year 12 achieved 48% A* to B and Year 13 achieved 44% A* to B. Over 70% of Year 13 students hit or exceeded their targets giving us an ALPS grading of 4 (Very good) for student performance. AS results were even better with nearly 80% of students hitting or exceeding their targets giving us an ALPS grading of 2 (Outstanding) putting us in the top 20% of schools nationally. This bodes really well for the A2 results this year and I know the year group are determined to surpass the achievements of their predecessors. Overall there was a 99% pass rate at A Level. It was also pleasing to see our average UCAS points per student rise for the third successive year. We also saw a significant rise in our progression rate (the number of students completing courses started in Year 12 by the end of Year 13).  Only 6 students failed to successfully proceed into Year 13 and pass their courses out of the 97 that started in Year 12.

Amongst so many fantastic achievements were:
Chloe McMinn – A*AAA
Catherine Shacklock – A*A*A
Olivia Cowling – AAA
Tom Rolls – A*AAB
Adam Kellett - AAB
Callum Witten – AABB
Mair Jones – AAC
Jack Pollington – AAB
