Sixth Form students at Stationers’ Crown Woods Academy were celebrating their A Level and BTEC results today with the Academy reporting an increase in the overall performance of Year 13.
Initial headline figures show that the overall pass rate increased to 99% (98% in 2016) and the percentage of students achieving top A*-C grades increased to 77% (70% in 2016). Maths, Economics, Sociology and Psychology were the top performing subjects at A Level. Vocational subjects also performed exceptionally well with the average grade across the cohort improving to Distinction* minus.
Executive Principal, David Millar said: "I would like to congratulate our students and staff on their achievements. This is the culmination of two years and in many cases, seven years of partnership, hard work and dedication. I would particularly like to thank the entire Arden staff team for their relentless commitment to our students. Our students and teachers have risen to the challenge of the demanding new specifications and we are delighted with their achievements. Particularly pleasing are our significant improvements in vocational subjects this year, with an average grade per entry of a Distinction *-. I wish all the students the very best in the next phases of their learning and lives"
Head of Sixth Form, Norman Doyle said: "We will remember the class of 2017 with great pride. For the second year running our Year 13 students have made fantastic progress which sees them heading off to read a plethora of undergraduate courses across the length and breadth of the UK. We wish them all the best as they embark on their adventure. "
