Year 13 students have returned to school this morning to find out their A-Level results.
Celebrations were in order for lots of students, who gained the results they needed to go onto university.
Mrs Kar, Director of Learning for Sixth Form said:
“I am delighted that most of our students have gained entry into their first or second choice university or have secured their apprenticeship training places. I am also extremely pleased that a significant proportion of our students have gained entry to the prestigious Russell Group universities.”
Notable Achievements included:
Joseph Brennan gained 2 A*s and 2 As and is to study Astrophysics at St Andrew’s University
Andrew George gained 1 A* and 2 As and is to study Physics at Durham University
Katie James gained 1 grade A and 2 Bs and is to study Geography at Newcastle University
Grace Ridley gained 1 A* and 2 As and is to study Politics at Durham University
Aaron Joshua Soriano gained 1 A* and 2 As and is to study Mathematics at Durham University
Georgia Harper gained an A* in Art, Distinctions in both Business and Health & Social Care, and a grade C in Maths, and will be starting a higher level apprenticeship in accountancy.
Acting Headteacher Steve Bridgman said:
“The continued hard work of the students and the committed teaching of our colleagues has been rewarded with some pleasing results for our students. The 2019 results underline the seven-year commitment to study in our hard-working school. There have been many changes to A-level course content and we are making sure that collectively and individually schools in Cumbria are able to share accurate information with the media, the public and other stakeholders who are as keen as we are to celebrate the successes of our children and to congratulate all of our school staff.”
“As always there are a number of queries over re-marks and grade boundaries and so, once the official DfE September checking exercise has been completed we will issue our headline data. For now, it is essential we focus on the real stars of today; the students.”
