Students celebrate A Level results

Updated: 2:57 pm, May 07, 2015

THE FUTURE looks bright for sixth form students after another year of impressive A level results.

Although nationally grades have dropped slightly, schools and colleges locally reported impressive results.

Myton School recently stated it would not be playing the exam leagues table game and would not release overall figures until next month once they had been properly compiled.

But the Warwick school saw some top achievers, including Dominic Saad who received five As, and Isla Ziyat who got four As.

Headteacher Paul MacIntyre said: “We are pleased to have maintained our very high standards from last year. Students have achieved entry to Cambridge, Oxford, medical schools and universities both here and abroad.”

North Leamington School saw a rise on last year’s results, with students achieving an overall pass rate of 98 per cent and 49 per cent being awarded A* to B grades – an increase of nearly four per cent.

Top achievers included Emma Jones and David Harvey who were both awarded three As.

Headteacher Joy Mitchell put the results down to the hard work and commitment of the school’s students and teachers.

She said: “I am delighted with the continued improvement in performance year on year of students, particularly the increase in A* to B grades. This year’s students have again produced excellent results that have improved further on last year’s results.”

Campion School achieved its best ever results with a 100 per cent pass rate, and 91 per cent being graded A* to C.

Outstanding students include Denicia Bernard who received four As and is hoping to secure a place at Oxbridge and Kara Singleton who is going to Sheffield University after getting one A* and two B grades.

Headteacher Mark Feldman said “Our students benefit from very good teaching, small class sizes and excellent relationships. We are pleased and proud that so many of our students will now progress to top universities or very good jobs.”

Trinity Catholic School students were also celebrating impressive results.

Headteacher Chris Gabbett said: “I’m so proud, not only of the achievements that have come out of Trinity, but also of the successes in all of our central Warwickshire state schools.”

Warwick School have also enjoyed 60 per cent of grades A* to A with many achieving three or more top marks.

Headteacher Gus Lock said: “ Such results would not be possible without a great deal of sustained hard work, both on the part of our pupils and by my colleagues. We are all incredibly proud of this year group who have achieved so much.”

Warwickshire College students have also bumped up their pass rate to 98 per cent.

One of the best results came from Martin McKenzie who received an A* and two As and now plans to go to university.

Deputy Principal John Rees said: “Congratulations to the students who have achieved this fantastic success with the college, and we wish them all the very best for the future, whatever they choose to do. They should be extremely proud of their achievements today.”

In the private sector results, girls at the Kingsley School were celebrating achieving a 100 per cent pass rate, with 82 per cent of students at grades A* to C.

The highest achiever was Daniela Vollaro who achieved an A* and 2 A grades and now plans to study languages at Cambridge University.

And two other students have been awarded scholarships to study abroad after scooping top marks. Zoe Robinson is going to study at the University of British Columbia in Canada and Amy Fearn is heading to New York University.

Headteacher Heather Owens said: “Once again we are celebrating a 100 per cent pass rate at A Level. Such success takes a huge amount of commitment and hard work from students and staff and I am immensely proud of them all.”

Princethorpe College scored record results with more than 60 per cent receiving grades A* to B.

Headteacher Ed Hester said: “Whilst we are of course delighted with their academic achievements, these students have many other fine qualities: kindness, respect and a strong sense of right and wrong which will be as important for them as they move on to the next phase of their education.”
