Withernsea High School students celebrate yet another year of strong A-Level results

Withernsea High School Sixth Form students returned to school today (18/08/16) to collect their A-Level results and were joined by several members of staff as they celebrated another year of very good results.

Overall results improved on last year’s performance with the school recording an improved pass rate of 98% across A-Level and Level 3 BTEC subjects, a rise of 1% on last year. As with 2015, the percentage of grades awarded at the very highest level remained strong with 47% of results being graded at A*-B or equivalent. 

Headteacher Richard Williman commented: "I am delighted with the success of our students and the continued excellent pass rate across all subjects. It is particularly pleasing to see so many of our students secure the grades they need to move onto University, apprenticeships or employment. This, along with the strong performance across the full range of A-Level and Level 3 BTEC courses demonstrates the strength of Sixth Form provision at the school. These very good results are a testament to the hard work that students and staff have undertaken and the support given by parents and carers. Congratulations to each and every one of our students on their individual success, and I hope very much that they will keep us updated on their progress as they move on to the next stage in their lives."

Director of Sixth Form Keith Bedson said: "These are an amazing set of results that reflect the hard work put in by students and their teachers. All of the Year 13 students deserve a great deal of praise for their achievements. Some especially impressive results came from Tyler Temple, who gained an A*, A and a B and will be going off to study Mathematics. Ben Garcia-Jones who achieved an A and 2 B’s will be studying Physics and Astro Physics. Sarah Smith who gained an A, B and C and will be going off to study film making and production. We have students going off to study a full range of subjects at many different universities. Some of these have chosen to stay locally at Hull University, Leeds, Lincoln, Newcastle, York, Manchester with others choosing to study further afield.  It has been a pleasure to work with such a dedicated set of students and we wish them all well for their future."
