ST MARY'S STUDENTS MAKE THE GRADE
St Mary’s A Level records were smashed as the class of 2015 today posted a set of outstanding results.
Our students received the grades that their efforts merited as they raised the bar significantly on last year.
Their impressive improvement was underpinned by a 10% increase in the number of grades at A*-B grades at A Level and another significant jump in the advanced level vocational results which also allow students to secure university places.
AND NOW FOR THEIR NEXT CHALLENGE...
Now they are off to the next destination on their journey, be it university, college or training.
There were some outstanding individual results which will allow students to take up their first choice university courses across the length and breadth of the country.
A LEVEL SPECIAL MENTIONS
Among our successful A Level students is Alex Mather, who achieved A* A* and A grades. Alex will now go on to study medicine in Hull York Medical School.
Other A* and A grade A Level students include Ryan Brocklebank, Sean Clarke, Reece Howard, Rachael Kinnear, Sophie Littler, Ross Mather, Liam McMahon, Alastair Nokes and Kieran Tarpey who will all go to the universities of their choice.
BTEC SPECIAL MENTIONS
Congratulations and well done to the following students who all achieved three Distinction * at BTEC: Amy Butterworth, Sam Hewitt, Kieron Holtham, Christopher Kirby, Natalia Parrington, Greg Sandalls, Francesca Warren and Jenna Wright.
St Mary's Head of Sixth Form Mrs Linda Jones said: 'It has been a privilege and an honour to have helped guide our students to the end of their time with us. They have worked extremely hard and now richly deserve to enjoy their achievements. We will miss them very much, but wish them every blessing and good luck for the future.'
Headteacher Mr Tony Boyle said: 'Today we see what can be achieved by students, teachers and parents working together. Undoubtedly this year group contains some of the most academically able students the college has ever seen and they have achieved outstanding individual results of which we are incredibly proud.
'As an inclusive college for students of all abilities we recognise that there are also many other students who have also achieved their academic potential which will enable them to take the next steps in their academic journey and we are equally proud of what they have achieved.'
Chair of Governors Father David Long said that he was delighted to hear the details of this outstanding set of results, which is tangible evidence of the great progress that the college is making, and wants to congratulate the students and the staff on their achievements.
