Sheldon pupils have done it again...yet another record year of very impressive exam results. Sheldon's 2012 exam results at both A level and GCSE were outstanding and confirmed the school's status as one of the top comprehensives in England.
For the third year running, Sheldon’s A level results that are amongst the best in the country.
For the last two years Sheldon has been ranked in the top 30 comprehensive schools in England, with a UCAS points average above 370 points per student (a single A grade is worth 120 points). In 2012, the average points score is 372.3.
Using the alternative Department for Education measure, the average point score is 933.7 (with a single A level grade worth 300 points).
22 students achieved three A grades or better.
69 students (43%) achieved at least one A grade.
26.2% of grades were As or A*s. 60.2% were B grades or above.
Only three of the 500 A level entries resulted in U grades.
Sheldon's GCSE results were the school’s best ever.
85% of pupils achieved five or more A* to C grades.
70% achieved the national benchmark of five A* to C grades including English and maths.
39% of pupils achieved the English baccalaureate, twice the national and local average.
Nationally there has been concern about falling pass rates in English, but Sheldon’s pass rate rose to 82%. We were delighted with these results and our pupils should be very proud of their achievements.
