Vocational and BTEC results have shown a massive improvement: a main aim of the year and a tribute to the efforts of all involved.

This year’s A Level and AS Level results were most pleasing. At A level 68% of students were successful in gaining A*-C grades and 98% achieved A–E grades. Many of the courses were following a new syllabus and marking boundaries have been tightened considerably meaning our results were extremely positive.

Similarly the AS examinations were particularly pleasing, especially as many of them were subject to new syllabus and more rigorous marking. 54% achieved A–C grades and 90% gained A–E grades.

Mr Alexander said that he was delighted that the hard work and ability of the students had reaped such positive rewards. He praised the dedication of his staff for their sheer professionalism and commitment to every student.

A Level

The A level results remained strong despite changes making it more difficult to achieve an A* or A.  Matthew Jackson, Ben Kay, Angela Roxas, and Victoria Upton all achieved straight A* and A grades. Across the range students excelled, and the overall pass rate remained very high at 98%.


AS Level

Notable achievements are Sarah Atkins, who achieved 5 A grades, Beth Freer, Bradley Johnston, Tarquin Kerton-Johnson, and Joyce Tang achieved at least three A grades each.


Simon Tanner, Assistant Principal and Head of Post 16 said, “I am delighted!  This has been richly deserved by students and staff. The Year group was delightful and the students worked hard all year. We work hard to achieve significant improvement with all our students, and this is the reward for our commitment: improved life chances for all our students.”


A Level results: improved life chances for students!
