St Wilfrid’s Sixth Form Students Celebrate Excellent A Level and Vocational Results

Students at St Wilfrid’s are celebrating today, after achieving excellent A Level and Vocational results.  Students achieved a very pleasing average points score per entry of 216.21 – a substantial rise on last year’s results.

Many of our students performed exceptionally well and they are now accepting their university offers, heading off to all parts of the country to start on their courses. Outstanding performances include those of:

  • David Maskill – 3 A*s, who will study Natural Sciences at Cambridge
  • Jessica Wilkes –  2 A*s and an A, who will study Mathematics at Cambridge
  • Courtney Whitehouse – 2 A*s and an A, who will study Veterinary Science at Bristol
  • In a first for St. Wilfrid’s, Jack Cooper (2A*s and a B) has been accepted to study Mathematics at Harvard University.

It is worth highlighting outstanding achievement by Chelsea Mitchell, Meg Nowell, Katherine Rust, Kai Sunman and Darius Ward, all of whom achieved at least A-Grades in their subjects.

Outstanding Vocational results were achieved by Natalie Carr (Triple Distinction* in Sport and Distinction * in Science), Ryan Shale (Triple Distinction * in Sport), and Megan Sledmore (Triple Distinction* in Health and Social Care and a Distinction * in Science)

We are delighted with an impressive overall pass rate at A level of 99.39% grades A*-E and, A*-B grades at 52% and A*-C grades at 81% and well as the excellent Vocational results.

Headteacher, Mr David Lewis said:

‘Congratulations to all the students on their excellent results.  I am delighted that their hard work and commitment has been rewarded.  As a Sixth Form College, we are proud that students have the opportunity to study such a wide range of A level and Vocational courses. Staff and governors are thrilled for everyone. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all staff and our year 13 students who have contributed so much to the school community over the past few years; we are very proud of all our students. We wish all our students every success for the future as they embark on university courses, venture into the world of work or take the opportunity to travel and volunteer.’

St Wilfrid’s welcomes 6th Form students from a wide range of local high schools and has a very broad range of courses, including a large number of vocational options. Enrolment for new sixth form will begin on Friday 21st August at 9.30am.
