EXCELLENT A LEVEL RESULTS IN 2016

Sheldon students once again celebrated some exceptional results in last year’s A Levels.

8% of the entries resulted in the very top grade A*, 54% of all grades were B or above, and 81% of the grades were C and above.  Incredibly, of the 564 examination entries only two were U grades, which gave the school an excellent 99.6% pass rate.  A record 97% of the 174 students left with 3 or more A Levels.

Top performers were Ellen Heimpel (4A*, 1A) and Ishmael Akalanne (3A*, 1A).  Ellen is at Birmingham  studying biological sciences whilst Ishmael is at Cambridge studying natural sciences.  Also scoring 4 A*/A grades were Annabel Brunt (Bath, Pharmacology); Joanna Crook (Keele, Physical Geography); and George Corr (Exeter, History).  Three boys, Charles Shaw, Freddie Redding and Harry Vaz achieved 3 A* grades; Charles is at Oxford studying chemisty, Harry is at Queen Mary London studying law and Freddie is having a gap year.

Joining the two Oxbridge students is Gemma Shepherd who has moved to the USA and has a place at the prestigious Yale University, following her 2A* and an A.

In total, 39% of students (67) gained at least one grade A, which is a significant achievement and we are so pleased to see so many of the students heading off to their universities of choice.  We are delighted with the performances of students at the top end, but as a fully inclusive comprehensive sixth form we are thrilled with the results of students right across the ability spectrum.  The students’ hard work, together with the support from teaching staff and parents, has very much paid off.
