A Level Results – Summer 2021
We are delighted to congratulate our Year 13 cohort who have this week received their A Level results. After a very demanding two years of A Level study, they have proved themselves to be resilient, determined and flexible learners. We could not be prouder of how they have risen to the challenges of A Level study in the most demanding of circumstances.
The hard work of our staff and students, over the course of the last two years and particularly over the last few months as we have worked together to assess students, has been nothing short of remarkable.
The outcomes for this cohort of students are excellent; as a school we are delighted to have maintained our extremely high standards and to have continued to secure the steady increase of the very highest grades of A and A*. We are equally proud to have ensured that we have secured a 100% pass rate with all of our grades awarded at A* - E.
The next steps for each of our students is different and for some this is different to what they may have foreseen at the start of their course, given the challenges of the global pandemic. In part this may have impacted on the increased number of our students opting to take a planned gap year, with employment, work experience, volunteering and travel all on the list of aims as these students take the time to enrich themselves and develop holistically.
Again the majority of our students have chosen to move onto university, with a smaller number taking up apprenticeships, employment and planned gap years. A rise in 15% of our university applicants attending Russell Group universities next year is another element of performance that we are delighted with, underlining the great performance of our students.
Our successful enrichment program, to support competitive applications for specific courses and universities, has seen Zoe Wilkinson (English Language and Literature) and Tom Batchelor (Materials Science) taking up places at University of Oxford, whilst Hattie Quinn moves to Keele University to read Medicine and Arun Jandu goes onto the University of Birmingham to read Dentistry.

Thank you for the magnificent way that you have navigated the last two years.
