Congratulations to all our hard-working sixth formers, who have been celebrating a superb 68% of grades at A*, A or B grades (including 31% A and A*) and a 100% pass rate. Students are now eagerly taking up their places at University and College, including FIVE taking up some of the most demanding university places in the country.
21 students earned 3 As or better (some of whom are pictured, right). Particular congratulations go to Amy McCormick, whose 4 A* grades have won her a place at Cambridge to read Chemical Engineering. Two students are going to Oxford: Jessica Parkes (3 A*) to read Biochemistry and Seth Garley (A*AA) to study Geography. Diane Fox also earned A*AA and will take up a place at Imperial College reading Biochemistry. You can see more pictures in our Celebrating section.
A late but welcome surprise came in a phone call to Freya Townsend, who had not received any university offers when she applied earlier in the year. After scoring A*AA, she received a call this morning from Liverpool University offering her a place to read Veterinary Science.
Headteacher Mr Kibble said: "We are tremendously proud of our students – and their teachers – for achieving so well this year. It's no wonder we have so many smiling faces today: 68% A*-B grades, 91% A*-C and a record high 'average point score' for students for the second year demonstrate how hard our students works and speak to the high quality of teaching at Salesian."
Head of Sixth Form, Miss Elizabeth Ingram, said: "It is wonderful to see so many happy students today, delighted with their results and excited about their plans for the future. The vast majority are going on to university and college courses or apprenticeships, and we're especially thrilled for the eight students who earned two or more A* grades. The Sixth Form is going from strength to strength.
The overall pass rate was 100%
A*-A grade passes totalled 31%
A* - B grade passes totalled 68%
A* - C grade passes totalled 91%
118 students sat A levels or their equivalents, achieving an average QCA points score of 961 (230 per entry).
