Posted by on Aug 14, 2014 in News | No Comments


It was a morning of celebrations at saltash.net community school as 6th Form students arrived on Thursday 14 August to collect their A2 and AS results.

The overall picture for both year groups was extremely positive.  In keeping with previous years, the overall pass rate remained very high at almost 99%, and the average points score per entry was encouragingly significantly higher than the 2013 figure, continuing the school’s upward trend in examination results.

Performing particularly well at A2 Level were the following students:

  • Lily Hemmett who achieved Mathematics A*, Further Mathematics A, Business Studies A and will now be studying Maths at the University of Bath.
  • Ollie Gilford who achieved Chemistry A*, Mathematics A, Biology A and will now be studying Chemistry at St Andrews University.
  • Lily Blake who achieved English Literature A, Geography A and Government and Politics A and will now be studying Philosophy and Politics at University of Bristol.
  • Grace Sutton who achieved English Language A*, Biology A and Chemistry B, and will now be studying medicine at University College London.
  • Ella Fadida who achieved History A, English Language A and English Literature B and will be studying English Literature and History at Cardiff University.
  • Rebecca Harrington who achieved Sociology A, English Language A and History B and will be studying English Language and Linguistics at The University of the West of England.
  • Sam Church who achieved Mathematics A, Applied Science Distinction, and Physical Education B.  Sam is hoping to now apply to become an Officer in the RAF.

Also achieving highly were Ellie Kearns, Adam Brocklehurst, Alex Wright and Becky Hill who all secured three A levels at ABB.

At AS Level there were also many outstanding individual results including Janie Olver who secured a remarkable 5 A grades in Maths, Biology, Chemistry, French and German, Kathryn Price who achieved 4 A grades in Psychology, Biology, Chemistry and Art and Design and Jayme Lingowski who achieved 4 A grades in Maths, Psychology, Biology and Chemistry.

Commenting on this year’s many successes, Deputy Headteacher and Head of 6th Form, Nick Scantlebury, said, “I am thrilled with the individual successes achieved by so many students this year across all grades and subjects, especially for those who have faced serious personal difficulties during the two year course.  These results are deserved reward for the hard work of both the students and the staff supporting them.  I wish all the students the very best as they embark upon varying degree courses, apprenticeships and employment opportunities.”

Headteacher, Isobel Bryce, added, “I am delighted with this summer’s Advanced Level results. Our young people work so hard and they deserve their many successes. It has been particularly rewarding this year to know that 100% of students applying for Higher Education courses secured their first choice university as a result of their A Level success and the support and guidance they received from our 6th Form team. I wish all students moving on this summer all the very best with future plans.”
