A Level Results

Published: 17/08/2017 10:55:00 | Category: 6th Form

We are delighted with this year’s A level results as the students achieved a 100% pass rate, with 9 students achieving at least 3 A*/ A grades in their subjects. A levels remains the gold standard of what you can achieve in school and this is the first year’s results for the reformed A levels in many subjects. The exams are getting tougher, yet our results maintained the excellent standards of the previous years. We are very proud of our students for whom it is a fantastic achievement. Some students have also achieved excellent results on their vocational courses, sitting alongside the more traditional A Levels. They have worked hard over their time at the school with staff who also deserve much praise for the support, encouragement, quality of teaching and many extra hours they have put in with the students. This demonstrates the strength of the collaboration between the staff of the Sleaford Joint Sixth Form and the success of developing teaching that supports students and encourages the independent learning, a skill that is required in many walks of life. Challenging subjects continue to be taken by our students and they achieve highly in these areas, allowing them to access courses at some of the country’s top universities, including Cambridge University. The majority of students have secured places at their chosen universities, whilst others have been successful in being selected for prestigious apprenticeships at Siemens, Rolls Royce and MOD Bristol.. The AS results for our Year 12 students were a marked improvement on previous years with students, setting excellent foundations for the second year of their A level studies.
