Students studying at St Neots Sixth Form Centre have produced a strong set of A Level results particularly in the new linear examination subjects, with a significant number of outstanding individual performances.
Headteacher, Martin Paine, was delighted with an overall pass rate of over 99% with nearly 40% of all grades at A*-B, which exceeded expectations. In terms of student progress, a wide range of subject areas performed in line with or above national standards including German, Product Design, Sociology, ICT, English Language & Literature, Government & Politics, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Film Studies and Mathematics. In addition, all vocational subjects in Sport, Business, Science and ICT achieved a 100% pass rate whilst 93% of students who took the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) achieved grades A*-B.
Outstanding individual success was enjoyed by Benjamin Walton (A*A* AA), Kimberley Tirrell (A*AAA), Sophie Tonks (AAAA), Alex Winter-Goodwin (A*A*AA), Natalie Hau (A*AAAA), Amy Arrowsmith (A*AAA) and Declan Wiseman (A*A*AB) allowing these students to go on to study further at some of the top universities in the country.
A number of students in Year 12 also sat legacy AS exams in a small number of subjects with 33% achieving grades A*-B which puts them in a secure position as they start the second year of their studies.
Director of Sixth Form, Mark Taylor, expressed his happiness with the results stating that, “At a time of significant changes in education, the outcomes achieved by the students are a testament to the hard work put in during the course of their studies and the time and support invested by staff and parents/carers. I am delighted by the wide range of subjects which have achieved such positive results for our students which are indicative of the opportunities available to sixth form students in the town.”
