A wonderful set of A Level examination results!

Posted by on Aug 15, 2019 in News | No Comments

Post 16 students at Saltash Community School have a lot to celebrate this summer, having achieved a wonderful set of A Level examination results.  In judging the school’s Sixth Form provision to be ‘Good’ in May, the Ofsted team noted that, “Teachers and students have good working relationships which help promote successful learning. Teachers challenge students in their thinking and they respond well.” This is evidenced in the fantastic results achieved this summer. Almost 45% of the grades achieved were grades A*-B and nearly 75% were grades A*-C.

Top performers were Harriet Hunt, Lucie Jones and Charlie Potts, all of whom achieved 2 A*s and an A grade.  Harriet studied English Literature (A*), History (A*) and Philosophy (A); Lucie, English Language (A*), Sociology (A*) and History (A); and Charlie, English Literature (A*), Sociology (A*) and Politics (A).  Harriet and Lucie also achieved A* grades for the Extended Project Qualification.  This new course was introduced in Year 12, with all of the year group sitting the examination.  The qualification achieved a 99% pass rate and a quarter of the students achieved the top grades.

Other high flyers are:

Maisie Glazebrook              A* (Art), A (Music), B (Philosophy)

English Language, Geography and Sociology deserve a special mention with 90% of their students either achieving or exceeding their target grades.

Unsurprisingly, with such great results, many students have secured university places to continue their studies, including many to the prestigious Russell Group of universities amongst which Cardiff and Exeter are popular choices. Examples include Maisie Glazebook (Music at Cardiff) and George Seymour (Electronic Engineering at Exeter). Further afield Eleri Griffiths has secured a place to study Psychology at the University of Manchester, Frankie Harbottle is off to the University of Southampton to study Fashion Marketing with Management, and after a gap year Harriet Hunt has a place for War Studies at King’s College London. Several students have gained places for Law, whilst others are off into the world of film and theatre or the sciences.

Headteacher, Kate Littledyke, is thrilled with these outcomes saying, “These results are testament to the incredible amount of hard work put in by our young people. The exciting next phase of their lives begins today!”
