2020 opens with stunning sixth form success
2020 has opened with some wonderful news of sixth form successes! Firstly, congratulations to Grace de Souza who has achieved a confirmed place at Oxford University (Worcester College) to read geography. Grace was our head girl and completed her studies last year. Amongst much else, she performed major roles in our school shows. We are all delighted for her.
Alongside Grace, we have three students in year 13 who have secured conditional places at Oxford and Cambridge. We are confident they will get the grades they need to secure these offers.
A further 35 students have received at least one offer from a Russell Group university which is fantastic! The universities include Durham, Imperial, LSE, UCL, King’s, Warwick, Edinburgh, York, Exeter, Leeds and Nottingham. Other students have got offers to fulfil lifetimes’ ambitions to pursue careers such as nursing, events management, criminology, paramedicine and counselling. We would like to wish all the sixth form students every success in their journeys as they complete their mock examinations and begin to prepare for the summer.
As many parents will know, we introduced our students to the EPQ (Extended Project Qualification) last year, which is a good enhancement to A level studies and well received by universities. Our first set of results has been extremely encouraging. The nine students who entered achieved 3 A* grades, 1 A grade, 3 B grades and 2 C grades. Many congratulations to them!
