Press Release on 2019 A Level results
Whitefield School Sixth Form is celebrating the best ever A Level results with the highest ever number of A* and A grade passes. Seven students obtained A* grades, the highest possible grade, in at least one of their subjects, with one student obtaining A* in all three of her A Level subjects!
Despite ongoing changes to the specifications for post sixteen examinations, both for A Levels and vocational examinations, which is making these examinations even harder, and the challenges faced by an increasing number of ‘unconditional offers’ by universities, the results obtained by this year’s Year 13 cohort are the best ever.
Learners in Year 13 achieved a staggering 12% of all A Level grades at A*-A with 36% at A*-B and 60% at A*-C. These higher grades will guarantee our students their places at their chosen universities, apprenticeships and into employment.
100% of students achieved top grade A* to C in Art & Design, History, IT, Finance, Sport, Music Technology, Travel & Tourism, Resistant Materials, Further Maths, Italian, Spanish and Russian. 100% of students achieved grades A* to D grades in English, Film Studies and Polish. There were exceptional results in Art & Design with 50% of students achieving an A*, the highest possible grade.
Liz Rymer, Headteacher, commented “We are delighted with these results. They reflect just how hard our students and our staff have worked to ensure these excellent outcomes are achieved. The standard of teaching and learning and pastoral support and care in our Sixth Form is truly impressive. We are a small Sixth Form where staff know all the students really well, meaning that our students get the individual support, both academically and pastorally, they need to be successful. I would like to publicly thank everyone involved in these amazing results and wish all our students every success in their next steps.”
100% of our Year 13 students were successful in gaining their first choice of degree course and now commence the next stage of their education at some of the top universities across the UK, including Warwick, Kings, Queen Mary, Goldsmiths, Nottingham, Kent, Middlesex and Hertfordshire.
Only four Year 13 students have chosen not to continue their studies at university this year. Navid Asadi is off to work as a sales manager for Smart Cells in Uxbridge and three students are taking a gap year before starting their confirmed university places in 2020.
Karina Saniuk, who has been a Whitefield student since Year 7 and is one of the two Head Students, achieved A B C and is off to study History at the prestigious University of Nottingham. She said “I am delighted with my results and all the hard work has finally paid off.” Amber Barnes-Grundon, also Head Student, achieved A B B and is off to study Film Studies at University of Kent. Krinal Dhiru achieved A* grades in all her A Levels—Maths, Further Maths and Chemistry—and is off to study Maths at Kings University. Other amazing results include Anastasia Romanents and Lubna Kollenchery who both achieved A* A A grades, Mousa Al Fadhli who achieved A*A B, and Laila Ross Stevens who achieved A* B B.
We wish all of our students well and look forward to hearing about their continued success via our successful Alumni programme.
