A Level Results 2018Posted on: 16/08/2018
Barton Court Grammar School is celebrating, yet again, excellent A Level results this summer.
Virtually all A Levels taken this year were the new reformed A Levels, widely considered to be more rigorous and demanding with students relying more on end of year examinations. The success of our students is testament to their hard work, talent and dedication. Nearly half of all grades were at grade B or better and the overall pass rate was 99.5%.
Mr Macaulay, Headteacher, commented: “We are delighted by these results. Students this year had to cope with linear examinations at the end of two years of study and we are thoroughly delighted they have got the results their hard work justifies. These results will help to transform the lives of our students and allow them to attend some of the most prestigious universities in the UK and overseas. I congratulate them for their excellent efforts and also thank the staff for their hard work over the last two years.”
The School is delighted with some notable achievements for individual students with 12% achieving AAB or higher in their 3 A levels; over 10% of students achieved 2 or more A*/A grades.
Particular successes include Ishbel Russell who has won a place at Trinity College, Cambridge to study Archaeology with a fantastic set of results – A*AA; Ishbel also achieved an A grade in her EPQ qualification.
Oliver Abel will be studying Chemistry at Bristol University, achieving an amazing A*A*A and Mia Shaddock has achieved her place at Warwick to study Politics, International Studies and French after achieving 2 A* and a B grade
Another highly talented student, Isaac Baxter achieved A*AA and is looking forward to studying mechanical engineering at the University of Sheffield. Finally the School is delighted with the success of two students new to Barton Court after they joined our Sixth Form from neighboring schools after Year11, Emily Birks is delighted to being going on to read psychology at Lancaster University after achieving BCC in her A levels and Shannon Perez is staying more local after successfully winning a place to read Criminology at the University of Kent.
