They say the early bird catches the worm… and the majority of James Calvert Spence College Sixth Form students turned out bright and early to collect their A Level results on Thursday 18th August and were rewarded with some fantastic results.
James Moore, Head of Sixth Form, said: “Congratulations to all our Year 13 students. The results achieved today have enabled all our students to progress on to their chosen pathways whether that be university, college, apprenticeships or employment. We are so proud of the hard work and dedication all the students have demonstrated throughout what has been an unprecedented and challenging two years. Our students have been a true credit to themselves and the school, and they fully deserve every success as they embark on their exciting futures.”
Neil Rodgers, Executive Headteacher, said: “Our excellent 2022 A-level results are a testament to the resilience and superb work ethic of our students and staff who, through unbelievably challenging times, have retained their focus and fully deserve the subsequent rewards.
“This cohort of students did not sit their GCSEs due to the pandemic, so their A-level exams were the first external tests they had sat since their KS2 SATs at 11 years old – yet they took them in their stride and performed incredibly well.
“All students achieved the grades that enable them to progress to their destination of choice, with the vast majority securing places at their first-choice university.
“Some subject highlights include:
- 100% A*-B grades in physics
- 100% A*-C grades in graphics
- 83% A*-C grades in English literature
- 83% A*-C grades in geography
- 100% Distinction*/Distinction grades in applied science
“We pride ourselves on our sixth form being small enough for us to know each of our students as individuals, yet big enough to run courses that excite and provide pathways into higher education or employment. This September, for example, we are introducing new courses in e-Sports and Hospitality in order to provide even more opportunities for young people in our community. This evolving offer, paired with small class sizes and personalised support is key to our continued success.
“As ever, I am incredibly proud of our students and of all the staff who work as one team to ensure James Calvert Spence College continues to improve, giving our students the best possible support, care and education.”
