A Level Success!
JC6 students have been celebrating the successful outcomes of two years of study and hard work. Staff were delighted to watch so many happy students opening A level and level 3 BTEC results on August 15th.
115 students have confirmed places at University and will be setting off in September to study right across England and Wales, on courses including Policing, Maths, Mechanical Engineering, Criminology, Primary Education and Fashion.
While results day is crucial to students holding University offers, many of our students had already gained places on prestigious apprenticeship pathways, including Law, IT, finance and Engineering. Some even had to take time off work to come and collect their results!
Overall 16 students had a clean sweep of top BTEC or A level grades, with 35% of students achieving a high grade. Our pass rate remains above the national average, with students in 28 subjects achieving a 100% pass rate this year. Results in the new BTEC courses showed 44% of students gaining the highest distinction and starred distinction grades.
Jodie Anderton, who achieved A* grades in Media and Sociology and A in Psychology, said ‘I was both shocked and extremely happy when I opened my results. I’ve achieved the grades I needed to get into Loughborough University to study Psychology.'
I am very thankful to my teachers at JC6 who have helped me to get this far. It has taken a lot of hard work but it was definitely worth it. I am so excited for the next step in my life, and to follow my passion within the field of Psychology.’
Having achieved As in Biology, Geography, English Language and EPQ, Harry Clayton is off to study Biology at Leeds, while George Waters heads to the London School of Economics, with A* grades in Economics and Maths and A in Further Maths. Harry said, ‘I’m very pleased with my results and very much looking forward to my Uni life. I’m not too sure what my future career plans are but my degree will allow me to broaden my knowledge of the field and then tailor to my interests. I would love to have a career in something biology related and at the moment my main interests lie in genetics.’
Harry’s parents added: ‘We are so thrilled for Harry. He’s got the results that he deserved. He worked so hard. Many thanks to the school and teachers for the time and effort that went in to support our son during the most intensive academic experience that he’ll probably encounter.’
Whether they are working, going on to study or taking time out to travel or volunteer before making their next career move, we wish the class of 2019 all the very best.
It’s been our pleasure to share their sixth form journey with them.
