Students, staff and parents are celebrating following an excellent set of academic and vocational results achieved by Collegiate Upper Sixth Formers.
As anticipated, public examination results for this summer’s cohort have been shifted back towards the pre-pandemic level achieved by candidates in 2019. The headline figures make for very encouraging reading:
42% of A-level grades were awarded at A/A*
73% of A-level grades were awarded at A*/B
54% of CTEC and BTEC grades were awarded at Starred Distinction / Distinction (the equivalent of A*/A at A Level
19 students (25 per cent of the cohort) achieved the equivalent of AAA or better
89% of university applicants secured their first-choice university courses
Collegiate Head, Jeremy McCullough, said: “Of course it is brilliant when a school’s collective raw results are very good but, as ever, it is the individual success stories that really demonstrate the value of the education a school has provided; it was therefore fantastic to see so many smiling faces at school this morning.
“Our young people have worked very hard, been terrifically well-supported by their teachers and their parents, and have earned a fantastic set of results that will see 89 per cent of them move on to their first or second choice university or apprenticeship.”
Mr McCullough continued: “Our approach has never been to focus solely on education as a means to achieving examination results. Our holistic approach to school life means that our young people’s learning extends far beyond the narrow confines of any exam syllabus. This cohort have contributed to school life in so many different ways and, in doing so, they will have picked up a great many other personal qualities, such as resilience, determination and kindness. These qualities will stand them in good stead for the future.”
