RESULTS AND DESTINATIONS
Over 100 pupils secure first choice place university with 8 pupils securing a place to study Medicine!
As a result of the government’s qualification reforms, A Level and Vocational qualifications are significantly harder than they used to be. Despite this increased challenge, over 100 pupils from Robert Clack School of Science have already secured places at top universities with a further 20 likely to do so in the next few days. Many others have been accepted on to prestigious apprenticeship programmes as a result of their excellent performance this summer.
The university destinations secured by the 2018 cohort of pupils are the best in the school’s history. University successes include Amira who will be studying English at Cambridge and Jola who will be studying Medicine at Oxford. In total a record number of 8 pupils have secured placed to study Medicine in September and over a third of pupils have secured places to study at Russell Group universities.
The A level and vocational results match the excellent outcomes from previous years. Once again pass rates at A Level were excellent. Of the pupils who studied 3 A Levels, 15% of pupils achieved UCAS points equivalent to AAA or above and over 25% of pupils achieved the gold standard AAB or above. The average grade for all A level entries was B-, with 22% of entries being graded at A*-A and 82% of entries at grades A*-C. In vocational qualifications the average grade was Dist+ with nearly 50% of entries being grades at Dist* or Dist.
Deputy Headteacher Richard Spandl said “These outcomes are a result of 7 years of hard work from the pupils, teachers and their parents. The pupils have shown tremendous resilience throughout their time in sixth form and we couldn’t be more proud of them. They thoroughly deserve the successes they are enjoying today.”
Headteacher Russell Taylor said “Despite the challenges of new curricula, our students have fulfilled their potential through hard work, dedication and the outstanding support of their teachers. I am, as always, exceptionally proud of all of them and can only imagine how proud their families must be.”
