Staff and students at Brooke Weston are celebrating this year's A-level results with many students gaining straight 'A' grades and set to study at Oxbridge and other prestigious universities. The A-level equivalent BTEC courses also yielded impressive results, particularly as this is the first year that the College has run them.
A total of 111 students sat A-levels and there was an impressive 98 per cent exam pass rate with 44 per cent of all exams taken being awarded an A or B grade.
• The 111 male and female students performed equally well in A levels comprising 27 subjects
• Several students were celebrating after getting straight A results
• Success in the new BTEC subjects of ebusiness and music technology with both music tech students gaining Distinctions and 10 grade As, 2 Bs and 7 Cs in ebusiness
Principal, Trish Stringer said: 'I am absolutely delighted with this year's results which reflect the hard work and commitment of our students and staff. We have had some outstanding individual performances, but the average pass rate equivalent means that we have gratifying results showing across the board as well. I'd like to thank former Head of Sixth Form, Mr Gerry Witt, and the current Head of Sixth Form, Mr Peter Wilkinson for the support and encouragement they have given our students over the past year. '
