Key Stage 5 Results
Robert Clack School A Level Results 2017 are the best yet!
With 2 pupils securing places to study Medicine, 2 pupils securing places to study Dentistry and 1 pupil securing a place to read History at Oxford, these are the best A Level and BTEC results in the school's history. This record of success which is based on high quality teaching, leadership, opportunity and partnership is certain to continue.
Despite the government’s drive to make post-16 qualifications more challenging, Robert Clack pupils have once again excelled achieving the School’s best ever A Level and BTEC results. A record number of Robert Clack pupils have secured places at top Russell Group Universities including Oxford, UCL, Warwick, Queen Mary, York, Sheffield, Southampton, Loughborough to study highly competitive courses including Medicine, Dentistry, History, Chemistry, Mathematics and Physics, Theoretical Physics, Biochemistry, Medicinal Chemistry and Law.
There were some fantastic individual student performances in both A Level and BTEC examinations:
• Of the pupils who studied 3 A Levels, nearly one third of pupils (30%) achieved the government’s ‘gold standard’ of AAB or above and 16% achieved UCAS points equivalent to AAA (i.e. A*A*A*, A*AA, AAA or A*AB).
• Of the pupils who studied 2 or more BTEC subjects, nearly one third of pupils (32.1%) achieved D*D*D or above.
In A Level qualifications:
• Nearly a quarter (23.1%) of all papers sat at Robert Clack were graded as A* or A, over half of all A papers (51.6%) were grades as a B or above and the vast majority of papers (85.0%) were grades C or above. • The pass rate was once again 100%. The average grade achieved by all pupils was in A Level qualifications was B-.
In vocational subjects:
• Nearly half of all qualifications (49.7%) were graded a Distinction* with just over three quarters (75.3%) being grades as Distinction or above.
• The average grade achieved by all pupils was Distinction+.
Deputy Headteacher Richard Spandl said: "We are so proud of all of our pupils and the record breaking results that they have achieved. More importantly we are delighted that these results are passports to their future prosperity and successes as they take up first class University places and apprenticeship opportunities in September. Success at Sixth Form requires determination, resilience and perseverance from the pupils. These attributes combined with excellent teaching and parental support are what has led to our pupils achieving yet another set of first class results. These young men and women have once again shown that pupils from Robert Clack, proudly a local authority school, are as good as any other pupils in the country. Well done to everyone involved!"
Key Stage 4 Results
We are extremely proud of our pupils’ outstanding achievements this year. They worked incredibly hard, together with the tireless support of their teachers and support staff, to secure excellent results in all subjects in defiance of more rigorous examinations and higher pass marks required to achieve the top grades.
‘Provisionally, 68% of our pupils have achieved grades 9-4 (the equivalent of A*-C) in English and Maths, which is the government’s new headline measure. The proportion achieving the long-standing headline measure of 5 GCSEs at grades A* to C, including English and Maths at grades 9 to 4, is also 68%, whilst almost 40% of pupils have achieved the English Baccalaureate. A number of pupils performed exceptionally well: 8 attained straight A*/A (or 9 to 7) grades, 21 achieved an average point score equivalent to straight A grades and over 50 obtained straight A*- B grades. The new, coveted grade 9, which is awarded to the very highest achieving pupils in the country, was achieved by 22 pupils!’
Together, these results represent the best set of GCSE outcomes in the school’s long history and will be significantly above the national average.
The performance of our pupils at GCSE, in addition to the record A level results announced last week, mean that 2016 has been yet another year of outstanding achievement by pupils at Robert Clack School. For that we must recognise not only their efforts, but also the remarkable commitment of our superb staff and the support of parents and Governors.
