Exam Results

2020

Due to the way that the results were arrived at in 2020, we will not be publishing school performance figures. For the record they are extremely good, but it is not meaningful to compare them to years gone by.
We do wish, however, to highlight the following individual student achievements at A Level.

A total of 19 students achieved a clean sweep of A*/A grades in their subjects, with the following gaining straight A*s in all of theirs: Tahmin Ahmed now doing Biomedical Science at Cardiff University; James Reynolds Computer Science at Bristol; Joe Saunders also at Bristol studying Aerospace Engineering; and Millie Webber Criminology at Birmingham.

 

2019 - VERY GOOD A LEVEL RESULTS AT SHELDON

Half of Sheldon’s 168-strong A Level cohort secured grades A*-B in this year’s examinations, with almost one quarter gaining the highest grades A* and A.  In value-added terms, this is one of the school’s strongest showings for many years, with results placing it in the top quartile nationally.

Of the A Level students, 92% secured at least three passes, 98% two and 100% one – an impressive achievement.  Louis Austin and Annabelle Moore gained 4 A*/A grades with Samir Jiwa achieving straight A*s in his three A Levels.  In all, 36 students gained at least two A*/A grades and this excludes those studying Level 3 vocational qualifications, of which an excellent 18 out of 26 achieved distinction or merit.

A further 4 students achieved three A grades (Jacob Joad, Jess Stevenson, Dominic Ward and Aidan Hancock) and another (Hannah White) achieved two A grades and a Distinction in Food and Nutrition. Another 10 students achieved at least two A grades.

As a fully inclusive sixth form we are delighted by the results of students of all abilities, not just the obvious ones who have a string of A and A* grades.  In particular, the results of Jasmine Hopkins, Oliver Cosgrove, Katy Lakeland, Holly Williams, William Harris, Alexandra Purbrick, Kit Stainthorpe, Lewis Morrisey and Lawrence Baddeley-Chappell are especially pleasing due to the huge progress made from GCSE. Our retention rate throughout the two years remains impressive and the students’ hard work has been amply rewarded, which will set them on their various career paths towards university, apprenticeships and the world of work.
