A Level and BTEC Level Examination Results 2023

On the morning of Thursday the 17th of August, we were delighted to share and celebrate the achievements of our Year 13 students and their A level and Vocational Examinations results for 2023. Having not sat GCSE exams in Year 11 due to the pandemic, this has been the first external examination that these students have sat. We are incredibly proud of all of their achievements.

I am sure you would like a little more information about today and about the many things we have to celebrate. Every student has had the opportunity to come into school today and meet with the Year 13 team and I am grateful to those who have been here to share in these meetings. I know that students have valued the opportunity to talk through any concerns and to share their joys. We are therefore incredibly proud of every grade our students have been awarded.

Top achievers include:

  • Jane Booth, (History A*, Biology A, Psychology A) who is going to study Archaeology at the University of Cambridge
  • Holly Smith, (Sociology A*, Geography A, Performing Arts Cam Nat Ext Cert D, EPQ A) who is going to study Geography at Portsmouth University
  • Peter Kennedy, (History A, Biology B, Sport BTEC Ext Cert D*, EPQ B) who is going to study Sport and Exercise Science.
  • Ayushi Parekh, (Biology A, Maths A, Psychology A) who is going to study Natural Sciences with a Placement Year at the University of East Anglia
  • Holly Crooknorth, (Performing Arts Cam Nat Extended Diploma D*D*D) who is going to study Musical Theatre at Portsmouth University.

Many others have also achieved excellent results. Students are progressing to a wide range of universities, many of which are within the Russell group, and will be reading a number of subjects including Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Law, Biomedical Science, Psychology in Education, Computer Science, Counselling Psychology and Civil Engineering.

Headteacher, Rev Chrissie Millwood said ‘I am so proud of these young people who have had to deal with so much disruption to their education as a result of the pandemic. Their resilience and determination has been immense and I am confident they will build on their current successes in the future. I am thrilled that the vast majority of these students are going on to study at the university of their choice, whilst others are beginning opportunities within the world of work. I am thankful to our committed staff for the support they have provided our students during their post-16 studies. Ultimately this day belongs to our students as it represents the rewards they now reap as a result of their dedication. No matter what their next steps are I wish them every success.’
