St Benedict’s School staff and students are pleased with the 2018 A-Level results.
Headteacher, Ian Smith, said, “The continued hard work of the students and the inspirational teaching of our colleagues has been rewarded with the performance of our students. The 2018 results underline the seven-year commitment to study in our hard-working schools. There are many changes to A-level course content and we are making sure that collectively and individually our schools 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.”
Chair of Governors, Willie Slavin, said, “It is immensely gratifying to see our students doing so well. My congratulations to them and their families. My thanks are extended to the staff for all their efforts.”
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”.
