Students and staff celebrate fantastic results again
Categories: Parent's Information
Students and staff at William de Ferrers School are celebrating tremendous A level successes today. Over 95% of our students have secured A*-E grades at A level with over 54% of all entries being awarded A*-B grades, or the equivalent.
All our departments are delighted with student performances, particularly English, further mathematics, media studies and drama. In further mathematics 100% of students achieved A*-B grades, in English A-level students achieved 67% A*-B grades and an impressive 93% achieved A*-C grades. Our media studies students saw results of 71% A*-B and in drama students achieved 62% A*-B.
Performance in vocational subjects was again outstanding with virtually all students achieving between distinction* and merit.
These fantastic results are a reflection of the tireless work and motivation of our highly driven students. At a time when examination specifications have undergone significant change, we are very proud of both our students and our committed staff today.
Students who achieved particularly highly include: Georgia Ladbrook, Hannah Guttridge and Rory Burke who each achieved at least 3 A grades in A-Levels, with Rory scoring an amazing 100% in 5 units of his mathematics examinations. Rory is going to study mathematics at Warwick University and Georgia will be studying at Leeds University. In addition to these fantastic results, Beth Turnbull and Emma White also achieved 3 distinction grades or higher in their courses.
A particular well done to the following students who achieved at least 2 A grades or distinction grades: Ethan Barclay,
Keira Bowdidge, Francesca Flowers, Megan Naylor-Jones, Fraser Lambert, Mollie Quinn, Alice Rydzik and Brooke Savino.
