Sixth Form Results 2017

Despite significant changes to a number of Advanced level subjects for the first time this year, students at Hugh Christie have achieved improved outcomes.

The proportion achieving qualifications at the equivalence of grade C or above has risen significantly by 7%; three quarters of qualifications were achieved at this level in 2017. The overall pass rate across all qualifications was 99%.

The average point score in Advanced Levels and Applied General qualifications both improved compared to 2016.  The performance in Technical Levels fell slightly but the average grade achieved was maintained at the equivalence of an A grade.

The performance of some students has been outstanding.

Lee Waterhouse achieved three distinction star grades and one B grade; he is planning to take up a career in accountancy.

Lucy Childs achieved three distinction star grades. Rebecca Hickmott achieved three distinction grades, two at a the highest awarded level.

Zoe Priston achieved three A levels, two at the equivalent of A grades. She is planning to go to University to study Politics and International Relations.

We are particularly proud of Shahab Khoram, who achieved an A grade in Maths after only two years of study in the UK. Shahab has had to overcome a number of challenges, including learning English, in order to achieve this grade.

Executive Principal, Jon Barker, said

“ The past two years have been extremely challenging for students and staff following the introduction of  new A level specifications in a number of subjects. This has created significant uncertainty. I am delighted that we achieved improvements giving so many of our Sixth Formers excellent opportunities for apprenticeships, University and employment. I congratulate everyone on their achievements and wish them all the best for the future”
