Sixth Form Results 2017Posted on: 17/08/2017
Barton Court is celebrating excellent A level results this summer.
Overall, the % of A levels grades being awarded A*-B has leapt by over 5% to 55% and there also has been a significant increase in students achieving an A* grade. The pass rate was 100%.
These results are all the more impressive for the fact over half of the grades this year were from the new more rigorous A level qualifications.
Mr Macaulay, Head of School commented: “Our students have worked so hard to achieve outstanding results and we are extremely proud of them and would like to congratulate them all. They have been a brilliant year group, the school has always had high hopes for them and they have fulfilled all our expectations. The A level results are an improvement from last year and usually place the School in the Top 100 state schools in the country for Post-16 Education (Source: The Times) 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.”
The school is delighted with some notable achievements for individual students with 12% achieving AAB or higher in facilitating subjects. 16% of students achieved 2 or more A*/A grades and 44% achieved 3 or more A*-B grades.
Particular successes include Jessica Grynfield who has successfully gained a place to read English Literature at the University of Cambridge with a fantastic set of results – A*A*AA. Jessica has been a leading light in the English department this year and her success is very well deserved for such a gifted student who has combined natural flair with consistent hard work throughout her A level studies.
Another highly talented student, Blake Davies will be commencing his studies of Mathematics at the University of Warwick, a highly regarded Russell Group university, following his success in achieving A* grades in Mathematics, Further Mathematics, and Physics, as well as an A grade in Music.
Finally, Kelly Roy, who joined Barton Court at the start of Y12 from Herne Bay High School has achieved a fantastic set of results, A in Biology, B’s in Chemistry and Psychology and an A in the EPQ. Kelly has made fantastic progress since joining the school, all due to her hard work and determination. Kelly is now looking forward to studying Biology at the University of York.
We wish all students every success for the future.
