Students who completed A-level and vocational courses in Futura sixth forms in 2023 are set for a bright future.
They are off to a variety of universities, colleges and apprenticeships following a successful set of results.
This group of students deserves particular congratulations as these were the first formal exams they had taken because their GCSE grades were assessed by their teachers in the aftermath of the pandemic.
Many achieved high grades, while others made progress far beyond what had been expected of them.
At Clevedon School, more than four fifths of university applicants have accepted their first-choice destinations.
Head of Clevedon’s sixth form, Katie Whiting, said: “Staff are so pleased with the excellent results achieved by students. Our students now have the grades needed to take their next steps to university, apprenticeships and employment. The results reflect the dedicated approach both students and staff have taken over the last two years.”
Overall results at SBL Academy were up on 2019, the last pre-Covid figures. While there was a slight reduction in A*/A grades, grades B and C increased greatly.
Head of school Simon White said: “Student outcomes this year bear testament to the strong and caring leadership offered by Post 16 leaders, support staff, tutors and subject teachers. Our congratulations go to each and every student, their families and the expert, caring and committed network of staff who have contributed to this success.”
Wellsway School and IKB Academy saw almost all students achieve the results needed to take their next steps in education, training or employment thanks to the efforts they have put in to seven years of secondary education
At Wellsway, 54 per cent of A-level entries obtained a grade B or higher, and 80 per cent a grade C or above.
Headteacher, Rob Pearsall, said: “I am extremely proud of all our students, so many have worked extremely hard and clearly been rewarded for their ability to adapt and maintain a sustained focus on their learning. I’m pleased that so many now have the qualifications and skills they need to go on to the next stage of their learning.”
