    Post 16 (A level and BTEC) results 2018
    Overall, students achieved 99% pass rate, with 48% at A*- B and 77% A-C, including A-level and BTEC grades.   These results ensure that many students can now take their preferred post-18 pathway with high numbers continuing their education at university. The large sixth form, ably supported by their specialist teachers and the school’s Governors, have been rewarded for their hard work and commitment.

    Zoe Brixey, Head of Sixth Form commented:

    “We are very pleased with the achievements of our students.  The new A level, BTEC and OCR courses are much more challenging for the students but despite this they have performed very well this year.  We have created a culture in the 6th form where students work hard and staff know every student well and can therefore support and encourage them to reach their potential. We also place a great importance on ensuring that our students leave the 6th form ready to progress to university or work by enriching the curriculum with opportunities such as work experience, leadership opportunities and extra-curricular activities.”

    There were good results across the whole curriculum with particular strength in maths (75% A*-B, 40% A*/A), Chemistry (50% A*-B), English Lit (67% A*-B) more than 50% of students also achieved the highest grades in Art, Textiles, further Maths and EPQ.  Vocational subjects did extremely well with 100% of students achieving highest Distinction* level in Sport and Music.
