A Level Results
A level results at BES remain strong in a sixth form that was graded as Good by OFSTED in March this year. Initial analysis shows that the vast majority of students achieved at least as well as expected and have got into their first choice university. Those students going onto apprenticeships or straight into careers have also achieved well.
This is a culmination of two years very hard work by students and teachers and deserves much praise. Overall figures show 71% A*- C grades and 98% A*- E grades which represents quite an achievement for this cohort of students.
Phil Loveday, Headteacher, commented ‘in an educational world that is going through vast change it is good to see that results for our students remains strong. Students and teachers deserve much praise for the way they have approached the last two years and initial analysis suggests that after two strong years for A level results, this year continues to build on that success’.
Julie Whitmore, Director of Sixth Form commented ‘I am pleased that the vast majority of our students have achieved their expectations. We deliberately challenge students to aim high and for so many to get to their first choice of university or to attain grades which will allow them to access suitable employment or an apprenticeship is fantastic.’
Students who particularly stand out for their achievements include:
Imogen Edwards – A*A B in Business studies, Geography and English Literature
Jess Knowles – A* A B in Drama, English Literature and Spanish
Chloe Laight – A B B in Health, Business Studies and Psychology
Nick Larsen – A B B in Maths, Physics and Geology
Holly Lewis – A B B in Fine art, product design and Business studies
Dominic Wills – A* B C in Product Design, Maths and Physics
Will Lowe – A B C in Business studies, Psychology and Geography
Mr Loveday said ‘I am incredibly proud of the achievement of all of our students and look forward to GCSE results next week’.
