STUDENTS across Wyre Forest have been celebrating this morning after finding out their A level results.

At The Bewdley School and Sixth Form Centre, 100 per cent of students achieved at least two A level passes at A* to E with 75 per cent of those at grades C or above.

The school’s highest achieving student, Rebecca Mackenzie, will be starting at University College London in September studying Medicine after achieving two A* and two A grades.

Paul Ramage, deputy Head, said: “These results are an impressive achievement for students and staff given our fully comprehensive intake and focus on academic A level qualifications rather than vocational equivalents.”

The average score per pupil at Stourport High School and Sixth Form Centre has greatly improved on last year, which was described as a “significant achievement”. More than half of the students achieved A* to B grades or equivalent, with more than 30 per cent achieving the highest grades of A and A*.

Associate headteacher, David Knott said: “Our aim is to ensure that students become the best that they can possibly be.

“Once again I am extremely proud that our students have secured some amazing results to enable them to more on to the next phase of their lives.”

For the eighth consecutive year, Baxter College students have achieved improved results at A level in both the academic and vocational qualifications.

Dave Seddon, headteacher, said he was delighted that all the hard work by students, and their teachers had paid off.

“The majority of our students achieved their potential due to everyone pulling in the same direction,” he said.

“Long may Baxter College’s approach continue to pay huge dividends.”

Pupils at Holy Trinity School achieved a 100 per cent pass rate in this summer’s examinations and more than 90 per cent gained entry to their chosen university.

Pam Leek-Wright, headteacher, said: “Once again our students have delivered a great set of results and we are all delighted for their personal success and congratulate them all.”

Chris Barth, head of the school’s sixth form, added: “We place emphasis on both academic success and the development of personal qualities and I wish the young people continued success.”

Headteacher of Wolverley CE Secondary School, Bryn Thomas, said he is delighted with the improvement in his school’s results.

“There’s been a significant improvement on the overall number of students who have achieved three or more A levels at A to E or equivalent,” he said.

“I’m delighted that 100 per cent of our students have achieved at least one level three qualification.

“This supports everybody’s belief that Wolverley is an improving school.”

This year’s A level class at King Charles I School are to be the last of retiring headteacher Tim Gulliver who has seen all students gain places at university or in further education.

Their results include an overall pass rate of 99 per cent in A levels and 100 per cent in vocational BTEC qualifications.

Mr Gulliver said: “Our students have much to be proud of and very many bright futures lie ahead of them.

“These results reflect the substantial efforts made, over the past two years by our young people, their parents and our very committed staff – my thanks go out to all.”

Congrats to all. Well done.

It is simply NOT true that A levels are getting easier. There is not one shred of evidence to support this Daily Mailism.
