Our 6th Form College is celebrating a fantastic set of A level and BTEC results this summer. 53% of all grades awarded at A level were A*-B, with over a quarter of all grades at A*/A and 83% at A*-C. More importantly, the vast majority of students secured their first choice pathway for either university, an apprenticeship or employment with a 100% A*-E pass rate at A level and a 100% retention rate. Mr Middlebrook said: “We are absolutely delighted with this year’s 6th form results, which once again demonstrate our high quality post 16 provision here at Alsager”.
Outstanding performers included Katie Hibbert who secured a place at the University of Cambridge to study medicine with 3 A*s in Maths, Biology and Chemistry. George Flanders also secured 3A*s in English Literature, Spanish and Politics and is off to the University of Liverpool to read Law and Politics. Elena Steiner secured a remarkable 3 A*s and an A in Further Maths, Maths, Spanish and German and is going to study Maths at the University of Warwick.
There were many other students who achieved stunning results; Mollie Brown (Theatre and Performance at the University of Leeds), Savannah Miller (Maths at the University of Liverpool), Faye Smith (Psychology at the University of St Andrews) and Amy Wyatt (Maths at Lancaster University) each achieved 2 A*s and an A. Other notable achievers include Nathaniel Heath and Lydia O’Neill who both secured 1 A* and 2 As; they are off to read Chemical Engineering at Lancaster University and Law & German at the University of Birmingham respectively.
Mr Middlebrook went on to say: “Congratulations to all our 6th form students. These superb results are richly deserved and reflect the hard work put in by our young people, the staff and the fantastic support from our parents and carers. These results are even more pleasing when you consider the huge changes which have been introduced recently at national level in terms of revised A level and BTEC courses and the ‘raising of the bar’ by government and the exam boards. These really are ‘new’ qualifications which cannot be compared to previous years and which are extremely challenging. I would like to praise our young people for handing these new, more challenging courses with such maturity and the fantastic staff here at Alsager, for delivering these new specifications so professionally. I wish all of our 6th form leavers every happiness and future success”.
We will continue to offer support for any students who need any further advice and guidance over the coming weeks.
