A Level Success Stories

A_Level_Stars_2014_380x286.jpgCongratulations to all our students on another successful A Level Year at Salesian. With 63% of grades at A*, A or B grades, and a 100% pass rate, students are now eagerly taking up their places at University and College, including seven to study medicine or dentistry, or at Oxford.

In 2014 our students include four prospective doctors, one dentist and three Oxbridge successes. Particular congratulations go to Jonathan Sinclair-Williams whose A*A*A*A grades have earned him a place at Cambridge to read Medicine. Our other medics are Anthony Huckle's (3 A*s, Nottingham), Charlotte Collins and Selina Tudose (3 As). Winto Lau (A*AA) will read Dentistry at Cardiff, while Benjamin Hodkinson's three A*s plus an A will see him to Durham to read Maths. Eleanor Ferrelly also earned three A*s, while Amanda Lonergan, Aislinn Lonergan, Elise Dore, Patricia Lopez Lema, Joseph Cleary, Grace Manning and Fiona Moran all achieved two A* grades. Grace will read English Language and Literature at Oxford where she will be joined by Alexander Hogan (3 As), reading Classics.

Mr Kibble said: "We are delighted to have so many happy students again today. The results speak for themselves: 63% A*-B grades, 90% A*-C and a record high 'average point score' for students overall are testament to the high quality of teaching at Salesian, the effort put in by our students and the support of their parents. We are a comprehensive school, and we are as proud as ever of all our students' successes."

Miss Elizabeth Ingram, our Head of Sixth Form said: "It is always special to have so many smiling students here, excited about their results and their places on university and college courses and apprenticeships. We're especially delighted for the eleven students who earned two or more A* grades and are heading off on exciting new adventures; these testify to the strengths of both the school and our students."
