A Level Results

A Level Results

Celebrations are under way as Sixth Form students collected their long awaited A Level results.

Building on last year's best ever A Level results, students have once again achieved a 99 per cent pass rate, with 71 per cent of grades being A* - Cs.

The subjects which achieved the most top grades were psychology, art and travel and tourism.

Many Tupton Hall students are now heading to universities across the country to continue their education, studying everything from maths, media and geology to criminology and comedy.

Head of Sixth Form Mrs Charlotte Burton said she was 'incredibly proud' of what students had achieved this year.

"The pressure on students to achieve the highest level is immense. Our students are applying for highly competitive courses such as social work, primary education and law. They worked hard for their exams and completed extensive work to ensure that when the results were published their places at their chosen universities could be confirmed."

"It is a very stressful time but ultimately fantastic to see so many of our students celebrating their achievements and looking forward to a wonderful future."

Headteacher Mr Andrew Knowles said: "We are delighted that this cohort of students have realised their potential and now have the qualifications to open doors to university places, apprenticeship placements and further education and training opportunities."

"The hard work of our wonderful students, our highly skilled staff and supportive parents and families has secured these results for the school."

Kaya Scott-Skingsley is one of the highest achieving students this year, having gained an A* and 3As in business studies, maths, further maths and psychology. She has been at Tupton Hall School since she was 11, and this September will embark on a maths degree at the University of Leeds.

Kaya said: "I'm so pleased with my results. I couldn't have hoped for better grades."

"I have really enjoyed my time at Tupton Hall Sixth Form. It's the people that make it great, like Mrs Greenwood my maths teacher who has really helped me."

"The sixth form is lively and friendly. And there are a lot of places around school where you can go to study either on your own or with other people, which I found really useful."

Some other outstanding individual achievements are:

Emily Kinsell (A* A A B), Rebecca Delaney (A* A* B), Georgina Rawson (A A A), Katie Rhodes (A* A B), Megan Lee (A* A B), Skye Henson (A* B C), Catherine Halford (A* B), Billy Edwards (A A B C), Millie Nicholson (A A B), Liam Gilliver (A A C)
