HWA Celebrates Great A-Level Results Again!
High Weald Academy staff and students are celebrating a great set of results with 99% of all sixth form entries gaining successful passes in A level and Btec qualifications.
The Academy has maintained its strong record in vocational Btec qualifications in particular. Many subjects gained high numbers of Distinction and Distinction* grades, (equivalent to A and A* grades). Of particular note are Business Studies and Hospitality with 100% of students gaining the highest grades. Health and Social Care and Public Services were close to that record with all bar one student in each subject gaining Distinction and Distinction*.
The only tears were tears of joy and at this early stage it looks as if all students wanting to follow University courses have succeeded in gaining their places. They are going on to study a diverse range of courses including Harry who had an unconditional place to study Broadcast Journalism at Nottingham Trent, Oscar going onto Accountancy and Finance at Chichester and Gemma following a degree in Sports Therapy. We have so many stars in year 13 but a few really stand out: Jodie Farris gained her eagerly anticipated A grade in Maths, a B grade in English Language along with double Distinction* in Business Studies; she is going to take up an accountancy training place in London. With Distinction* in Business Studies and double Distinction* in Hospitality, along with her English Language A level, Lydia Hobson is taking up a higher level apprenticeship place at Harrods! Claudia Hammond, who has always loved riding, has gained a place at the British Racing School at Newmarket and will study Racehorse Care and Management.
The range of qualifications and the high level of achievement shows the level of hard work, dedication and commitment that our students and staff have shown to achieve such success. These are qualities that our students will take with them into their future studies and careers.
Students commented on being overjoyed at how well they have done and thrilled with the outcome from their hard work. “We are very proud of all of our students and know how hard they worked to achieve this stunning set of results,” said Principal Carrie Beech.
