Once again Helsby High School’s Sixth Form students are celebrating exceptional results, both at A-Level and in equivalent Level 3 qualifications. 53% of all A-Level grades achieved were A, A or B grades, with 27% of all grades at A or A.
Over 40% of students achieved at least one A/A/Distinction grade, with 1 in 7 of all students achieving 3 or more A/A/Distinction grades, including Emily Durling, who achieved A* grades in Biology, Chemistry and Maths and is going to study Medicine at Cambridge University. Emily Doherty achieved 2 A* grades and 2 A grades and is now going on to study for a degree in Art, Rebecca Kidd achieved 2 A* and 1 A grade and is now going to study Politics at Leeds University and Harry Tilston is going to study Mathematics and Physics at Manchester University having also achieved 2 A* and 1 A grades. James Whittaker, who also achieved 2 A* and 1 A grade, has secured offers of places on prestigious Higher Level Apprenticeship courses at two major employers.
Director of Sixth Form, Ian Duffell, said: “We would like to congratulate our students on their fabulous achievements. Their well-deserved success is down to their own hard work and commitment, but we would also like to thank their families for all the support they have given to the students during their time in the Sixth Form. We wish them all the very best for the next stage of their lives beyond the school.”
Headteacher, Martin Hill, added: “It is really pleasing to see that yet again students have flourished and realised their full potential at Helsby’s Sixth Form. With an overall pass rate of 98%, students of all abilities have made excellent progress, enabling them to fulfil their dreams and pursue the exciting plans they have made for their futures. It is also pleasing to see that students have been successful across the entire Sixth Form curriculum, with students achieving the very top A* grade in 15 different A-Level subjects and 24 of our courses achieving 100% pass rates. This reflects both the strength and breadth of our Sixth Form curriculum offer and also the high-quality teaching and support provided by the dedicated staff at the school.”
