A Level Results Update
Students Have Achieved 100% A* and A In A-Level Further Maths.
The Barclay School is celebrating the best A level results for three years, showing significant improvement across all key performance indicators.
The overall pass rate for A level was 95%, with 70% achieving grades A* to C and 45% A* to B. Almost all students were thus able to access their choices for university.
This is particularly good news in the light of the national context of new A level courses and the focus on final exam performance.
There were a number of individual notable successes with Jordan Barber achieving A*AA to read Astrophysics. Jade Burroughes A*A* A* to read History, Lucy Brinkley ABB to read Politics, Tom Davies A*AB to read Maths. Ethan Murrill A*AA to read Engineering, Bethany Nobbs A*A* B to read Psychology, Charlie Powell A*A*B to read Aerospace Engineering, Caitlin Sharp A*BB to read English.
Notably, the Maths department are celebrating 100% A* and A results for Further Maths.
Headteacher Mark Allchorn said:
“I’m delighted with the well earned success of all students at Barclay School. The individual results mean that students can move confidently to the next stage of their career. I’m particularly proud that students have worked hard with the staff at Barclay to make the very most of all their opportunities in what has been a very challenging year.”
These results are the first national benchmark of Barclay’s journey back to good. We look forward to further developing the academic success of our sixth form students in a new Sixth Form Centre to be opened in 2018.
