Year 13 Results Day

Congratulations to all our students who collected their A level and Vocational results today. It was wonderful to see all our Year 13 students for the last time, especially as school had ended so abruptly for them in March.

Overall, these are the best ever A level results for the school and reflect the hard work, commitment and resilience of our students. With an overall 97% pass rate, 30% of all grades were at grades A*-B and 55% at A*-C. Particularly high performing subjects include Chemistry, where two thirds of entries were at A*-B, History, where 75% of entries were at A*-B and in Government and Politics, Italian, and Health and Social Care, 100% of entries were awarded A*-B.

Particular congratulations to Jess, who achieved A*AAA and is the first ever student at Prospect to win a place at Oxford University, where she will study Biomedical Science.

Our Head Girl Holly, and Head Boy Jake managed to achieve exactly the same grades – AABB; Jake will be studying Mechanical Engineering at Birmingham University, whereas Holly has opted to join the management trainee programme at Tesco – with today her first official day as a manager! Other high performers include Mirsab and Hamed, both achieving ABC and many students were able confirm their first choice places at Universities across the country, studying a wide range of subjects. We are especially proud of Chloe who will be joining the NHS in October when she begins her degree in Nursing.

 

In these exceptionally difficult circumstances, I am incredibly proud of our students. They have demonstrated fortitude, resilience and integrity throughout these unprecedented times and leave us as exceptional young adults, ready to take on great challenges as they achieve great things. I have no doubt that they will all make a substantial contribution to society in the future. They are an absolute credit to the school and we wish them all the very best for the future!

I would also like to pay credit to our wonderful staff who worked tirelessly to ensure our students received grades that truly reflected their true potential and their meticulous approach was borne out in the accuracy with which grades were awarded.
