A-Level and KS5 Vocational Results 2022

Posted on: 18/08/2022

Great results for Whitefield Sixth Form, 2022

 

Whitefield School is delighted to announce some fantastic achievements in this summer's A Level and KS5 Vocational qualifications. It has been a tricky few years for this group of young people with lots of disruption to their education due to COVID 19 but it goes to show that hard work, resilience and adaptability is the key to success. We have lots to celebrate with our A Level courses, especially in Art, History and Psychology, and some fantastic achievements in our vocational courses especially ICT, Music and Travel and Tourism. 

 

Headteacher Elizabeth Rymer said: “We are immensely proud of our students. They have all

put so much effort into their studies for these examinations and I hope the results are enough to open the door for their next steps, whether that’s in education, employment or training. This cohort of students have faced considerable challenges across the last two and a half years due to the pandemic. I want to congratulate them all and I wish them every success as they move onto the next chapter of their lives. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank all the amazing staff at Whitefield School, who have worked tirelessly to support every student. On behalf of the students and Governors too, a huge thank you!”

 

Not to be lost in the overall grades, there are some remarkable individual stories of extraordinary students who obtained top grades ( A*, A, Distinction * and Distinction) 

One of these students is Mario who achieved an A* in Greek, Distinction for Sports, Distinction for Travel and Tourism and a Merit for Music Technology. He is off to study Strength and Condition Science at St Mary’s University. Mario joined us in Year 12 from Greece. 

Eric achieved an A for Biology, B for Chemistry and B for Psychology. He is going to study Neuroscience at Queen Mary’s university. Younes achieved AAB and will be studying Psychology with Philosophy at Glasgow University. 

Other success stories include Ali who achieved Distinction*, Distinction, A and B and is off to Queen Mary’s to study Engineering. Wesaall achieved a Distinction, B, C and has accepted a place at City University of London to study Law. Weasel recognises that his results are down to the hard work he has put in during Year 12 and 13. Today he was beaming and had these words of wisdom for others “With hard work and dedication the sky is the limit!”

Jakub achieved a Distinction and a C and is really excited to study Theatre Technology at Guildhall School of Music and Drama. Jakub has been interested in lighting and sound design since joining us in Year 7 and this is a massive opportunity for him. When we spoke to him today he had these words of advice “Spread your workload, don’t leave anything till the last minute. It does get tough, but if you start early you can achieve your full potential. Maintain some sort of social life outside of school to give a balance”.

Some of our students joined us in Year 12 and performed really well. These include Gufran who achieved BBB and will be studying Pharmacy at Kingston University. Today she commented “Everything happens for a reason, so never give up, and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise”. Another student who joined us in Year 12 is Romario who achieved a Distinction*, C and Pass. He is excited to study Strength and Condition Science at St Mary’s University. In addition we are delighted that Emily achieved BBD and is going to be studying Law at City, University of London. It’s such a massive achievement for Emily and we are really proud of how far she has come. 

These students are joined by many more who are off to university to study Law, Computer Science, Chemical Science, Politics, Acting, Psychology, Criminology, Fine Art, Accounting and Finance, Business Management, Tourism with Business, Media Communications, Cyber Security and Digital Forensics but to name a few.

A delighted Louise Cavanagh, Assistant Headteacher and DIrector of Sixth Form commented: “We are incredibly proud of all our students. It was such a pleasure to see their smiling faces today and to help them secure their next steps. The students have been through so much what with COVID-19 and lockdown but they have come back fighting and determined to be the very best”. 

As always we have some students who are off to complete an apprenticeship or into the workplace. Keeping your options open and taking the path that is right for you is something we believe at Whitefield School so it’s brilliant to see students taking an alternative pathway instead of university.

We are so proud of our students and would like to wish them the very best of luck for their future.
