Sixth Form

 SIXTH FORM INFORMATION EVENING

Our Sixth Form Information Evening took place on Thursday 1 December in our main school hall and it was a pleasure to meet so many students with their parents.  

If you were unable to attend and would like a copy of our new Prospectus and an application form, please contact Mrs Tymele Badger, Sixth Form Administrator, on 01249 766036 or email sixthform@sheldonschool.co.uk. If you prefer, a copy of the Prospectus etc can be downloaded from our Prospectus page of this website.

Our current Year 11 pupils should already have received a pack of Prospectus and application form via their Tutor but should contact Mrs Badger if they have any queries about the Sixth Form.

 

EXCELLENT A LEVEL RESULTS 

Sheldon students are once again celebrating some exceptional results in this year’s A Levels.

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

Top performers are Ellen Heimpel (4A*, 1A) and Ishmael Akalanne (3A*, 1A).  Ellen is now off to Birmingham to study biological sciences whilst Ishmael is heading to Cambridge to study natural sciences.  Also scoring 4 A*/A grades are 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 off to Oxford to study chemisty, Harry to Queen Mary London to study law and Freddie is having a gap year.

Joining the two Oxbridge students is Gemma Shepherd who is moving 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.
