Latest A-level Results

CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR A LEVEL STUDENTS

Headteacher, Barry Doherty, writes…

We are extremely pleased to announce that our Year 13 students are celebrating another round of great results in our outstanding sixth form. In a year like no other, we can share news that results have continued to rise in each of the A*-A, A*-B and A*-C thresholds. Average Points Scores have also risen and reflect the hard work of our deserving students and dedicated staff.

Head of Sixth Form, Lisa De Bruyn, adds…

“It is impossible to congratulate everyone personally on their successes. However, I would like to mention a few: Felix Wigzell for attaining four 4 A* grades and his Veterinary Science place at Bristol; to Megan Kyte and Ronan Kennedy for securing their places on their respective Medical Degree courses; Jacy Taylor for securing her place at Oxford University to study Psychology and Philosophy – and to all other students that are going to study their chosen degrees in September. Subjects ranging from the History of Art at Warwick to Artificial Intelligence & Computer Science at Birmingham. 40% of our students that applied to University have gained a place at a Russell Group University, which is a fantastic achievement.”

“It has been an exciting morning talking to our students about their next steps and celebrating the university and apprenticeships places that have been confirmed. I am delighted that so many students will be continuing their further education. I wish the students that have chosen to take a gap year or enter into employment the best of luck. I am confident that the strong grades they have achieved will stand them in good stead for their chosen pathways. It has been a particularly challenging time for this cohort, with the COVID pandemic affecting there A levels and I am incredibly proud of them all. I wish the year 13 every success, as they pursue their post 18 aspirations and I look forward to hearing about their progress as they begin the next phase of their lives”.

CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR A LEVEL STUDENTS

We are extremely pleased to announce that our Year 13 students celebrate another round of great results in our outstanding sixth form. In a year like no other, we can share news that results have continued to rise in each of the A*-A, A*-B and A*-C thresholds. Students’ Average Points Scores have also risen and reflects the hard work of our deserving students and dedicated staff.

A* – A Grades: 26%

A* – B Grades: 51%

A* – C Grades: 74%

Average Point Score: 90.6

We also ensured that a traditional collection of results could take place and have been delighted to see so many students come into school and leave with beaming smiles.

The achievements of individual students each tell their own unique story and journey but we are delighted to mention the following thirty students who, between them, achieved an astonishing sixty four A* and A grades: Tom Ashton, Reuben Beck, Alex Blackmoresly, Eve Carroll, Emma Clacy, Georgia Clifton, Ben Davies, Molly Duff, Maddy Fisher, Katie Flanagan, Ewan Graham, Charlotte Harris, Megan Hayes, Ellis Hewins, Oscar Hlustik, James Howard, Ronan Kennedy, Megan Kyte, Ellie Lewis, Ella Miall, Rory Mitchinson, Ben Nottingham, Louis Ringrose, Toby Rodwell, Harry Smart, Jacy Taylor, Anna Thompson, Charlotte Warner, Felix Wigzell and Robert Woolcock.

Tom, Alex, Molly, Maddy, Megan Kyte, Ellis, James, Megan, Jacy, Charlotte Warner and Felix can be particularly thrilled by securing at least three A*/A grades each this summer.

Whilst these are very early days, 85% of students that applied to university have already secured places at their firm or insurance choice, with 75% of these being their first choice. These are higher proportions than ever before and reassuringly means that the story ends well for the vast majority of our students. Naturally, we turn our full attention to those whose destinations are not yet clear and will work closely with them to secure places or agree a different solution.

Our thanks goes out to all the teaching and associate staff at CNS who have worked so hard with these students for up to seven years.

However, results day is not simply about obtaining university places, for many students, it is the recognition of completing academically rigorous qualifications and a rite of passage as they choose their post 18 pathways. For some students, it is the beginning of a new adventure as they travel the world on a gap year (although perhaps not in the immediate future), or the stepping stone into the world of work. For example, congratulations to Emma Thompkins for securing a teaching assistant role at Great Tew Primary School, Ewan Graham for securing a Para-Legal Apprenticeship with The Burnside Partnership and Sam Ratcliffe for securing an apprenticeship with Wise Investment.”
