A Level Results 2017
2017 was another fantastic year for our A Level students with 100% pass rate. Year 13 celebrated an amazing results day surpassing last year in pretty much every respect. 60% of the grades achieved were in the highly coveted A* to B range with 85% being between A* to C. We once again achieved a 100% pass rate for the third successive year. One of the most pleasing points to note was that 97% of the students that started with us in Year 12 progressed right through to the end – some achievement in this time of the well publicised trend for schools to refuse those below target at the end of Year 12 to progress into Year 13.
On that front, over 70% of the students hit or exceed their targets in Year 13. The vast majority of students secured their university places and those who did not get their first choice found good alternatives. They are typically spread far and wide from Newcastle to Southampton, from Bristol to Norwich. A special mention should go to Ed Lee who achieved four A* grades to secure a place at Jesus College Cambridge to study Natural Sciences. Many students have also beaten huge competition for Higher Level Apprenticeships in a broad range of fields including automotive design, accountancy and the civil service.
