Wakefield College celebrates A Level success

Press Release A Level Results Day Sixth Form

There was an air of jubilation amongst staff and students at Wakefield College after the class of 2011 achieved another set of excellent A-level results. Figures revealed last night showed that the overall pass rate exceeded 95% for the 7th year in succession, and backed up the College’s most recent Ofsted report which judged A-level success rates to be outstanding. 

AS level students also had reasons to smile, as the proportion achieving high A to C grades improved significantly on last year. Individual successes included three students who picked up straight A grades. 

Thirteen A-level subjects achieved a 100% pass rate, including Further Maths, Chemistry, Psychology, History and ICT. A-level Art & Design recorded a 100% pass rate for the tenth consecutive year; Film studies recorded a 100% pass rate for the 8th consecutive year whilst both A–level English Literature and Psychology delivered the maximum pass rate of 100% for the sixth year in a row. 

Thanh Binh Nguyen achieved two A*s in Physics and Mathematics and two As in Further Mathematics and Chemistry. Thanh has secured a place at Warwick University to study Maths. Thi Ngoc Minh Nguyen picked up an A* in Maths, an A in Further Maths and two Bs in Chemistry and Media Studies. 

Director of Sixth Form, Tony Rex, said “Our students can be justifiably proud of all the hard work that has underpinned their success. They have coped admirably with the challenge of A-levels, and set high standards for the Sixth Form in the future. It is great to see the students continuing to maintain the high standards that are integral to the ethos of the College.” 

College Principal Sam Wright said, “We are extremely proud of our students’ achievements. They are a testament to the hard work and dedication of our students along with the high quality teaching and learning environment that exists here at Wakefield College. I, along with all the senior team, would like to congratulate all our students and staff on their success.”
