Sixth Form Results
We are delighted that our students have once again done fantastically with another exceptional set of exam results. Top grades are up again at A* or A and three quarters of all grades are at A*-C. We have seen a 100% pass rate in the new linear A-levels with an impressive 40% A*-A across the Science subjects of Biology, Chemistry and Physics.
We have once again performed outstandingly in the facilitating subjects with 27% of A- level students gaining at least 3 grades AAB with 2 or more of these grades being in some of the most demanding A-level subjects. Last year we were placed us in the top 3 schools in Lancashire on this measure. This once again shows that our most able students have performed brilliantly despite the introduction of new tougher A-level exams.
Particular congratulations must go to Lydia Kitchen who achieved 3 A* with many modules at maximum marks. Lydia has gained a place at Durham University studying Natural Sciences. It was a particular day to remember for Lydia who also celebrated her 18th birthday on results day! Also congratulations go to Ruby O'Loughlin and Charlie Seddon who each gained 3 A*-A. Ruby has secured a place studying medicine at Leeds University and Charlie is taking a year out before applying for medicine next year.
The following students all achieved at least 3 A-levels with at least 2 grades at A or A*; Martyna Kwiatkowska who will be studying Chemistry and Molecular Physics at Nottingham University, Joleen Wu who will be studying Nutrition at Leeds University, Alex Rejszel who will be studying Biology at Lancaster University and Libby Dixon who will be studying Environmental Science at Leeds University.
Our results in vocational subjects are once again exceptional with a record 75% of all grades being at Distinction*. We had 12 students who gained at least 3 straight Distinction* with particular praise going to Patryk Prus who gained 4 grades all at Distinction*
We are also delighted that Trisha Valencia has also gained a place studying medicine at Imperial College London after a year out gaining work experience, having secured 3 A* and an A last year.
Almost all our students have secured their first choice of university place with students also successful in assuring places on high quality apprenticeship schemes such as EDF. We are delighted that our students can now embark on the next stage of their careers and we wish them all the very best for the future.
