We are celebrating outstanding successes in their A-level and Applied General results, marking another year of excellent academic and personal achievements for students at the school, with an overall pass rate of 99%. This year the school has achieved the highest proportion of top grades ever, with 61% of entries awarded A*-B for A level and Distinction*-Distinction for vocational courses. Excellence in applied general courses continues to flourish with 100% of Health and Social Care students being awarded Distinction*/Distinction grades. We are very proud that the determination and effort of the students has been justly rewarded with such excellent results.
Jane Gargan, Head of Sixth Form, said:
“We are absolutely delighted with the students’ achievements and so happy to share in their success on results day. These achievements will allow all our students to follow the path of their choice, whether that be into higher education, apprenticeships or other further training. A significant number of our students will now progress to university on their first choice courses and we are able to celebrate some excellent individual performances. Students have secured top places at the University of Liverpool, Bangor, Huddersfield and UCLAN to name but a few. We are equally delighted at the strong progress made by a significant number of students who have thrived in their sixth form studies and exceeded expectations. The school has been committed to offering the support and guidance to ensure that every student achieves to their best of their ability and I’d like to take this opportunity to thank staff for their efforts too.
Ashleigh Clarke, is going on to study Forensic Psychology at UCLAN. She commented,
“On the morning of results day I was so scared to see what grades I had achieved but when I realised I had achieved one A and three Bs I was ecstatic. I wouldn’t have been able to get the results that I did and to get through my exams without the amazing teachers at the sixth form. They made me believe that I could do it and that I had the potential to achieve from the start. I am so thankful to the staff for helping me get to where I am now and I’m really looking forward to starting university with greater self-belief.”
Jamie Jardine, Principal, said:
“We are proud of the students’ achievements and would like to thank parents for their support and staff for their hard work and dedication to the students”.
We provide a wonderful opportunity for students to truly fulfil their potential in a caring and vibrant community and we look forward to the expansion of the sixth form with the opening of the new outstanding sixth form facility in January 2018.
