We were delighted to share the excitement of results today with our Y13 students who after an anxious summer received their grades. A number of them have already started advanced apprenticeships whilst others found out today that they had achieved the grades that they needed to start their university degree courses.
Some of our individual success stories of our students are:
Sam Hollands (Head Boy) – A* in English Literature; A in English Language; B in History. Sam will be reading English Literature at Cardiff University.
Harry Joyce – A* in Fine Art; A in English Literature; B in English Language. Harry will be taking an Art Foundation course.
James Dower – Distinction* in Music; B in English Language; B in Maths; B in Fine Art. James starts his music degree at Oxford Brookes in September.
Abigail Steer- A in English Language, B in English Literature, B in Media Studies. Abi will be studying English Literature at the University of East Anglia.
Summer Hedley-Stevens – A in Media Studies; B in Film Studies; C in English Language. Summer will be studying Television and broadcasting at Portsmouth University.
There were some department success stories too with 100% of students studying English Literature achieving grades A*-C and 93% achieving this in English Language. 100% of students studying Further Maths achieved grades A*-C; and 89% of students studying Media Studies achieved grades A*-C. Students in Music Performance achieved 100% Distinction* pass rate.
Mr Stephenson, Head of Sixth Form:
I have very much enjoyed working with this small cohort of students and am pleased to be able to share their success with them. All of the students have a career plan as a result of studying here and are prepared for the next step whether it be apprenticeships, university or the world of work. We already have students who have started their apprenticeships with companies such as Google and Panasonic with a number of other students in the middle of selection processes with IT, Law and Multimedia Firms. I wish them all the best for their future.
We are pleased with these results which reflect the hard work that the students have put into their studies. We wish all our students well as they make their next steps into the world, whether at university or starting their career. I would also like to thank the teachers who have worked with the students to enable them to achieve these grades, as well as the parents who have supported their children through their exams.
Liz Cook, Headteacher.
