A-Level Results Day 2016

A Level Results day is always a nerve wracking time as students (and their teachers!) find out the results of two years of hard work. Year 13 once again achieved a fantastic set of results, with 60% achieving at least one A/Distinction/Distinction* and 44% achieving at least two Bs and above. Staff were very proud of what their students achieved and congratulated them on their success. It’s a real privilege of the job to share the excitement of the results and what they are going to do next. 60% of our students are heading to university to study a wide range of subjects including English, Computer Science, Finance, Primary Education, Politics and Design Technology to name a few. As well as heading to university, students have also secured apprenticeships and full time jobs For all of our students, we wish them all the best in the next stage of their lives!
