Success, relief and joy were all on the emotional scale for sixth form students when they received their A Level results at Samuel Ward Academy- with an amazing 100 per cent pass rate registered for A* to E grades.
More than 74 per cent of the results were A* to C grades with students doing particularly well in English language, English literature, media studies, German and product design.
Special mention goes to Lauren Sullivan, who got an A in English language, B in geography and a distinction* in IT, Amy Hull, who achieved an A in biology and Bs in chemistry and psychology, Joe Lay, who attained an A in English literature and Bs in history and English language and Jamie Jansen, who got a distinction* in IT, and Bs in English literature and English language.
Students studying vocational courses also did very well, with 50 per cent of those taking BTEC IT achieving A grade equivalents (distinction *) and James Howard, Jordan Palazon and Nicola Wilson gaining the equivalent of three A grades at Samuel Ward’s Sport & Football Academy.
Imogen Senior, head of sixth form, said: “These results are testimony to the hard work of the students and their teachers, as well as the support and encouragement of their parents.
“I’m really happy for them, especially as almost all of them have the grades they need to go on to university.
“I would like to thank, on behalf of our students, anyone that has helped make this day possible.
The sixth form offers a wide range of courses that cater for students looking to pursue traditional academic subjects and other high quality vocational courses, like the successful Football Academy.
Mrs Senior added: “That students were successful in a wide range of areas is especially pleasing.
“It means that these students have made good progress and can go into work and study in the fields that they are interested in.
“From all of the staff, I wish them the best of luck.”
