Brooke Weston Academy is celebrating another positive year of A Level examination results, with 61% of all entries being graded at A*/A/B and 86% of grades A* to C. This is the fifth consecutive year where our Year 13 students have performed outstandingly well. The overall average point score per student is 336 UCAS points, indicating on average that students secured an AAB profile. The top performing student achieved three A* and one A grade, whilst another student achieved two A* and two A grades, with two other students achieving a profile of one A* and three A grades. A further 17 students achieved a profile of three A*/A grades, which is a tremendous achievement. Many other students were awarded exceptional individual results.
Over 70% of the Year 13 cohort is moving on to University with the remainder opting for professional or vocational apprenticeships. A number of students have secured places at highly prestigious universities. These include Vinh Ta, Physics at Imperial College London; Daniel Tough, Mechanical Engineering, Christopher Weaver and Benjamin Perkins, Mathematics all going on to Warwick University; Jacob Guthrie, Physics at Nottingham University; Adrialina Parv, French and Italian at Leeds University and Elliot Beeby, Classics and Philosophy at St. Andrew’s University. Equally impressive is the number of students who have secured highly sought after apprenticeships with multi-national companies. This includes Jack Crane who will be joining PricewaterhouseCoopers; Ross Freeman who secured his apprenticeship with KPMG and Emily Stubbins with Grant Thornton.
Principal Trish Stringer said: ‘Once again our A Level results reflect the hard work and dedication of both our Year 13 students and teaching staff. The headline figures are very impressive indicating achievement across the board and in every subject. The fact that our students are securing places in high quality universities across the country, or have been offered apprenticeships in national blue-chip companies, demonstrates that we are equipping our students for success in whatever career or aspiration they wish to pursue.
'I, and the rest of the staff at Brooke Weston, wish our students every success in their future lives and careers. I would like to pay tribute to our hard-working teachers, whose professionalism, mentoring skills and subject knowledge have undoubtedly led to the excellent results attained by this year’s cohort.’
