Brooke Weston is celebrating another year of excellent A Level results as 64% of all examinations taken by Sixth Formers have been awarded one of the top grades of A*, A or B.
Performance measures remained consistently high for the third year running with average points per student indicating an overall attainment of three A graded A Levels or equivalent.
Our top-performing student achieved four straight A* grades while another six attained four A* or A grades. Many others were celebrating impressive individual results and 10% of all entries were graded at A* or equivalent. One student is going on to study materials science at Corpus Christi, Oxford after gaining four As.
Boys and girls performed strongly across the board in the 28 subjects offered in Brooke Weston’s Sixth Form with exceptional results in vocational qualifications.
31 students also received the Brooke Weston Diploma, awarded to students who have successfully completed two years of core study along with optional higher studies and who have also made a contribution in the local community.
Principal Trish Stringer said: ‘Once again the hard work and dedication that our students have demonstrated in the Sixth Form is reflected in these creditable results today. Not only do we have some exceptional individual successes, with many students leaving with a string of top grades, one of the key trends has been the results attained in our wide variety of applied vocational courses.
This success shows that, whether our students want to follow a totally academic curriculum, or are more suited to creative, physical, artistic or vocational disciplines, they have been well served by all of the departments here at Brooke Weston. These results are testament, not only to the hard work and skills of our students, but also to the commitment of teaching staff across a broad spread of subjects, whose professionalism underpins the success that Brooke Weston is celebrating today.’
