Record A Level Results @Read; 100% Pass Rate!
Despite the turbulence of the past two academic years, Read School sixth form students achieved an impressive pass rate of 100% for all A2 and BTEC entries with 97% of passes (A2 & BTEC) at A* - C grades.
Mrs Trish Kavanagh, Head of Sixth Form commented ‘we are absolutely delighted with the performance of our Year 13 students. This was their first experience of public examinations as a result of the pandemic, and they achieved top results in a number of subjects, including Business, Psychology, Chemistry and English Literature, defying a decline in this core subject nationally. Strong performances were also seen in PE, History, the Extended Project Qualification and BTEC in Health & Social Care, illustrating the breadth of A-level and vocational programmes available to Read School Sixth Formers’.
Headteacher, Mrs Ruth Ainley, said:
The A-level cohort of this year have had to cope with so much throughout the Covid period, and they deserve success and particular recognition as they move on to the next stage in their life. We are equally proud, not only of the excellent examination results that our students have achieved but the life and leadership skills they have acquired along the way, such as the Leiths Certificate in Food & Wine, the Duke of Edinburgh Gold Award and leadership positions within the Read School Combined Cadet Force. Our Sixth Formers are an impressive bunch with many accomplishments outside the classroom, including outgoing Head Boy, Jake Sowden who recently won the English Schools National Golf Championships and has secured a golf sponsorship from Howdens’ .
It is gratifying to see all students seeking university places after so many months of hard work and unprecedented disruption. I am very proud of them all and of our staff whose advice and guidance helped them get there’.
Pupils from Read School will be taking up places in a number of different universities all over the country and in a number of different disciplines, including English, International Business, Journalism, Actuarial Science and Event Management. “We wish our Sixth Formers well as they embark on the next exciting chapter of their life” said Mrs Ainley.
