Workington Sixth Form has announced a ‘highly encouraging’ uplift in results. Over 47% of A-levels are at grades A* to B, six percentage points higher than in the previous year. Average points scored per subject are 10% higher than last year’s, and a quarter more students achieved an extra grade of progress during this academic year.
Amongst the excellent performances is that of Sam Bradley with two A-stars and two A grades; Sam will be studying Physics at Manchester University. Jennifer Kirkwood’s results include two A grades, and Jennifer is delighted to be going to the University of Cumbria to study Fine Art. With results including an A-star and a grade A, Grant Park has exceeded his entry requirements to study for an honours degree in Mathematics. Matthew Riley’s three B grades mean that he has gained a top university place to study Physiotherapy. No less than seven students achieved the ‘triple-distinction’ accolade in Child Development, with these students now being superbly positioned for successful careers. Ten distinctions were received amongst the eight students on the Sports Studies double award, of which seven were at the highest ‘starred’ level.
Commenting on Workington Sixth Form students’ results, Lorrayne Hughes, Executive Headteacher for Stainburn and Southfield Schools said that she was delighted with the combined efforts of students and staff. She added, “These students have worked extremely hard they have achieved great results which now launch them into university, college, apprenticeships or employment; congratulations and best wishes to them all.
