Felpham Community College Celebrates Results

Students have achieved well in GCSE and BTEC subjects this year.   Despite the significant disruption to their education during their time at secondary school, our Year 11s have been rewarded for their hard work and commitment by achieving results that ensure that many of them can now move onto their chosen post-16 pathway.

Many of the year 11 students exceeded expectations and there were a number of exceptional results.  The following students all gained an average of at least one grade higher than their targets:

Kurtis Allies
Daniel Baiks
Charley Barker
Bruno da Silva
Daisy Evans
Sam Jack
Emilia Luke
Chloe Mole
Cristina Muntean
Tallulah Powell
Bailey Rix
Julia Sawicka
Teddy Varndall
Joshua Watson
Darcie Windsor

Michelle Kelly, Acting Headteacher, commented, ‘We are pleased with the determination and perseverance of all of our students.  Achieving these results takes hard work and we are proud of the resilience and determination that they have shown throughout their time at school’.

These results provide our students with an opportunity to access our academic 6th form and provide a firm foundation for university or work in the future.  Staff and students have worked unbelievably hard.  I would also like to thank our parents and the school governors for their ongoing support and commitment to our school.

If you are interested in joining the school Sixth Form from this September, please see the school website for more details and contact the school to arrange a meeting.

Felpham Sixth Form Celebrates Exam Results with Students

Students at Felpham Sixth Form achieved some excellent A-level and BTEC results again this year and are now looking to take their preferred post-18 pathway, with a high number continuing their education at university. This is the first time that these students have sat formal exams since year 6.  They have had significant disruption to their education but despite this, and because of their hard work and commitment as well as the support they have received from their specialist teachers and the school’s Governors, they have achieved great results.

Zoe Brixey, Head of Sixth Form, said, ‘This year has been challenging for students, with much anxiety as this year group did not have the benefit of sitting GCSEs and have not completed any formal exams since the end of primary school.  We are extremely proud of how they have performed and coped with the stressful exam period.  The ethos we have where staff know every student well has helped us to support and encourage them to achieve.  We place  great importance on ensuring that our students leave the 6th form ready to progress to university or work, and we are confident that they will continue to be successful in the future.

Although a large number of upper sixth students achieve amazing results, of particular note are:

A Levels

Zalia Ali AAB
Ruby Bowditch A* A B
Kiera Nanson A A* A B
Miriam Shelton A* A A C
Maya Siddall A* A A
Finn Slater A* A* A A A

Level 3

Elizabeth Marsh D D* D*
Georgia Robson D*D* D
Emily Sargeant D* DD

Michelle Kelly, Acting Headteacher, commented, ‘We are delighted that so many of our students have done so well.  The success of the students was down to their hard work and determination, alongside the first class teaching and the excellent leadership of the sixthform.  We are proud of each and every one of our students especially at this challenging time, and wish them well for the future.’
