Students Celebrate A-Level Success
Students at Barr’s Hill School are celebrating their outstanding A Level results and record breaking results in Vocational qualifications. All of our students have achieved their first place university choices whilst others are now looking forward to apprenticeships and the world of work.
Star students this year include Daniel Odjo and Navita Dewitt. Daniel achieved A, A*, Distinction* in Physics, Maths and Engineering and Navita achieved A, A, B in Religious Studies (AS), Sociology and Psychology. During their Sixth Form studies both students were part of the Career Ready programme which supported their studies with mentors from industry and internships in their chosen career area. In September Daniel will be studying Engineering at Manchester University and Navita is returning to Barr’s Hill to complete her studies.
Overall, students this year have improved on the higher grades; the number of students achieving A*-A grades has doubled since 2015, and almost 30% of students gained grades A*-B at A Level and an impressive 81% achieving the equivalent Distinction* – Merit for their BTEC Sub Diplomas.
Head of Sixth Form, Mrs Byrne said, “Congratulations to all of our Sixth Form students at Barr’s Hill who collected their A Level results today. Every single student should be proud of their achievements and I wish you all every success in the future”
