Brooke Weston is celebrating its Sixth Form’s best ever A Level exam results with 68 per cent of all exams taken being awarded one of the top grades of A*, A or B. Scores improved by all measures over last year with the average point score per student increasing for the fourth year running. Each student gained an average of over three A Levels at A Grade or the equivalent. The top-performing student achieved no less than four A* and two A grades while another achieved four A* grades. Many others were awarded exceptional individual results and all students passed every exam they sat.
Boys and girls performed equally well across the board in the 33 subjects offered in Brooke Weston’s Sixth Form.
Three students have gained places at Oxford or Cambridge and a further four have gained grades which would have met the Oxbridge result requirement in their subject.
Thirty-four students also received the Brooke Weston Diploma. It is awarded to students who have successfully completed two years of core study along with optional higher studies and have made a contribution to the local community.
Principal Trish Stringer said, ‘Once again our students have done themselves, and us, proud. This is a stunning set of results which ends a particularly successful year for the Academy; one in which we were praised for our Sixth Form provision by Ofsted. We are proud of our vibrant and thriving Sixth Form, offering students every support and encouragement and they, in turn, have delivered these fantastic results.
'Among the many individual achievements we are celebrating, we are especially pleased, as the country looks towards next year’s Olympics, by the number of students who have gained high-quality university places in the sport and sports management areas.
'Each and every one of our students, whatever their individual aims and aspirations, has performed superbly and I can confidently wish them all the very best in their future lives and careers.’
