Outstanding A Level results
Students at Rossett are celebrating another set of excellent results in their A levels and other post-16 qualifications.
The pass rate for the school was over 98.5 per cent, with more than 27 per cent of the students awarded grades A* or A, and over three-quarters of all grades awarded being A*-C.
Headteacher Helen Woodcock said: “Once again, hard work has paid off for our students and we are delighted to see their success today. The vast majority of our students have achieved the results they needed to take the next steps in their careers, whether that's going to university or taking up offers of apprenticeship or employment."
“As well as the incredible hard work put in by students over the last two years, these results reflect the support they have had from teachers, staff and their friends and family.”
As well as strong scores for the year group, there were some outstanding individual performances:
Tom Hullah who achieved A*AA and an A* in his EPQ and has secured a place at Oxford to study Chemistry and Oliver Hall Walmsley who achieved A*A*AB and is going to Durham to study Engineering.
Laura Houseman’s A*AAB allows her to take up her place at Manchester Metropolitan University to study Fashion. To support her application Laura also achieved an A in her EPQ where she produced three garments inspired by the culture of the 1960s.
Hannah Dolman achieved A*AA and is pursuing her passion for Music Journalism at the British and Irish Modern Music Institute.
Among the other outstanding results were:
Head Boy Arran Kennedy achieved AAA and will study Economics and Politics at Leeds University.
We are delighted that Joanne Ho secured her place at The Royal Veterinary College in London after achieving A*AB; this fulfils her long-held ambition to work in the field of veterinary medicine.
Having already left to take up her place on a football scholarship in the USA, we are delighted that Chloe Bellerby gained 2 Distinctions in BTEC Business and BTEC Science; she also achieved a C in A Level PE. This was a fantastic achievement, alongside raising over £10,000 for MIND charity by walking from Leeds to London in April and increasing awareness of mental health in the local community.
Ms Woodcock added: "It's gratifying to see these achievements celebrated by the whole school community today. In a year where we have been successful in securing over £1.3 million to support improvements to the classrooms, Sports’ Centre and the building of a new Learning Resource Centre (LRC), our students’ superb outcomes are the icing on the cake."
