Wakefield College celebrates A Level results…

 A Level students from Wakefield College’s Sixth Form have once again come up trumps after the class of 2017 achieved another strong set of results. Figures revealed last night showed students achieved an overall pass rate of 96% - the 14th year running the result has exceeded 95%. In addition to the A level success, an impressive 12 BTEC Extended Diploma students achieved three distinction stars – the highest results possible. 

This year saw 11 A Level subjects achieve a 100% pass rate, including Accounting, Business, Chemistry, Computer Science, English Language, English Literature, Film Studies, Geography, and Spanish. Film Studies achieved 100% for the 14th consecutive year, whilst English Literature students attained the 100% mark for the 12th year running. 

Amongst this year’s top achievers, Grace Exley achieved A* (Physics), A* (Spanish), A* (Chemistry) and A (Mathematics). Commenting on her results, Grace said: “To leave Wakefield College with 3 A* and an A is unbelievable. I would never have managed it without my tutors’ hard work and all of the opportunities Wakefield College has offered me.”  Grace has secured a place at the University of Cambridge to study science.  

Students at AS Level were also celebrating after they achieved an overall pass rate of 81% - a huge 8% increase on the previous year’s results. Standout performers at AS Level included Phoebe Early who achieved AABB whilst Andzelika Duda gained ABBB. 

College Principal, Sam Wright, said, “We are extremely proud of our students’ achievements. It is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our students that they continue to deliver great results for the College. Our Sixth Form offers a distinctive learning experience that provides a stepping-stone between school and university. Our students speak highly of the excellent working relationships they build with their teachers and I am confident this is a key factor in these tremendous results. I, along with all the senior team, would like to congratulate all our students and staff on their success.”
