The whole community of St. Mary’s Catholic High School is celebrating an outstanding set of A Level and vocational results. Our students and teachers have continued to work hard and challenge themselves resulting in huge strides towards the highest grades. The excellent outcomes represented by 1 in 4 grades being awarded as A*/A or their equivalent and over 99% achieving A*-E or the equivalent are a testament to two years of dedication to college.
Mr Dawson was delighted with the results and the success of the students. He commented, “The results that the students have achieved are outstanding and say so much about our young people.”
Mr. Jack Farrimond, Chair of Governors offered “sincere congratulations to all our students and the results they have achieved. It is a real testament to their hard work and the support they have received from their family and the school.”
Mr Adam Robinson, Director of Sixth Form was exceptionally pleased with this year’s impressive results and commented that “St. Mary’s Sixth Form is very much an inclusive community with 36 different subjects and qualifications on offer to enable all students to find the right course to become successful.”
The excellent results only tell a part of the Sixth Form journey which has been one of growth and opportunity. All students who wanted to attend university have been successfully placed and many speak of their enjoyable experience throughout their time with us. One student commented ‘I couldn’t have done it without the help and support of St Mary’s staff. Thank you so much.”
