The Bicester School students celebrate A-level success
Students at The Bicester School were celebrating A-level results today.
In a year in which A-level exams have been substantially toughened and AS-levels no longer count as part of the final grades, students received their A-level results, with 95% of A-level students gaining two or more A-levels in their chosen subjects. This is a similar picture to the performance in 2016 but seen as a substantial improvement, given the much more rigorous academic landscape in 2017.
A small number of students took level 3 vocational equivalents and when these are combined with the A-level results, 96% of all students at The Bicester School, achieved two or more Level 3 advanced qualifications.
A number of students are continuing their studies at university. These include:
Megan Butcher – Politics and Sociology at Bristol University
Connor Wilce – Financial Maths at Loughborough University
Joe Greener – Economics and Maths at Southampton University
Millie Salt – Sociology at Leicester University
Kallam Tingey – Media at Oxford Brookes
Connor Wilce was among the top performers with three A grades and one B. Connor is going on to study Financial Maths at Loughborough. Connor said: “I am delighted with my results and thanks to all my teachers who helped me to achieve them. I am now looking forward to starting my degree course.”
Megan Butcher who achieved two As and one B at A-level and is heading on to Bristol University, said that she was: “overwhelmed at getting her first choice university to study Sociology and Politics at Bristol.”
Tony Rushworth, Headteacher at The Bicester School, said: “I’m incredibly proud of all of the students – the hard work and determination they have shown throughout the year has resulted in a fantastic set of grades.”
