A Level Results – Academic Year 2017/2018
Year 13 students and staff celebrated together as the A Level and BTEC results were finally revealed.
Top of the class this year was Marta Stangierska who achieved five A Levels; 4 at grade A* and 1 at grade A. These results are even more impressive as Marta’s first language is Polish. With these outstanding grades, Marta has secured her place at Oxford University to study Mechanical Engineering.
Our students’ impressive results have enabled them to secure places at other prestigious institutions including UCL, Kings, Birmingham, Loughborough and Leeds, to study everything from Maths, Pharmacy, Economics & Politics, International Relations, to Geography, Fine Art and Law. Of those going to university well over 40% will be attending Russell group universities from September, compared with a national average last year of 11%.
All subjects fared extremely well however, Mathematics was particularly successful and all Further Maths grades were either A* or A, as were the Chemistry grades.
Farringtons offers a wide range of A level and BTEC courses in the Sixth Form, to suit our students’ aspirations and it is encouraging that our A Level and equivalent results have continued to improve significantly over the past three years - A*/A grades are up by 18% to 48% and A*/B grades by 16%, to 64%. For further details please check the school’s website.
These results are testament to the hard work from the students themselves and to their inspirational and committed teaching staff.
Dorothy Nancekievill, Head Teacher, commented, “I am extremely proud of what the students have achieved and wish each every individual continued success, as they embark on the next stage of their education”
