The High Weald Academy Raises A-Level Results Again!
High Weald Academy staff and students are celebrating a great set of sixth form results; highlighed by a 100% pass rate for all A level subjects.
Of particular note are the academy's English Language and Literature results, with their 11th year in a row with 100% pass rate! Maths A level and AS results were also strong with 100% pass and some good grades.
Vocational Btec results have improved significantly with 88% gaining Merit, Distinction or Distinction* (equivalent to B, A and A* respectively). In Hospitaility Btec 100% of students gained a Distinction or Distinction*, the highest possible accolade. In Business Studies, Sport, Public Services, and Health and Social Care Btec courses over 90% of students gained the highest grades of Distinction and Distinction*.
The only tears were tears of joy and all students wanting to take up places at University have succeeded in gaining their places, many to study Sport related courses and such things as diverse as Business and Law and Social Work. Others are going onto college to study a range of subjects from Forestry to Graphic Design. One student who joined the school on a managed move in year 10 at risk of exclusion went on to gain good GCSEs and is now celebrating two D* and a C grade at the end of year 13 that gives him his place at Hertfordshire to study Business and Economics. Gemma, Charlotte and Hayley in addition to their full A level programme also took additional Btec courses gaining Distinction* across the board and giving them additional points for University places. Jennifer even took an additional full Btec in a year gaining a Distinction in her ICT Btec. This shows the level of dedication and commitment that our students will take with them into their future studies and careers. Others are heading into the world of work with Georgia taking up her post at KPMG in London, others in apprenticeships.
Students commented on being over joyed at how well they had 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.
