Cirencester Sixth Form College celebrates another year of exceptional A-level results
A-level and vocational students at Cirencester Sixth Form College can be proud of a year of outstanding results and certainly deserve this recognition of their exceptional efforts.
Among many success stories, nine students have definitely secured their Oxbridge places and eleven students will be on their way to start their Medicine and Veterinary Science courses at university. Amongst the many success stories is our highest achiever Juliet Biard, who will be going to Cambridge University to study Natural Sciences. Juliet achieved four A*s in Chemistry, Physics, Maths and Further Maths.
Many subjects have excelled, enabling students to join extremely competitive courses at top universities across the country including Oxford, Cambridge, Bristol, Exeter and others from the Russell Group. We also have many students joining our professional apprenticeship programmes or attaining entry straight into their chosen careers.
Principal Jim Grant commented: “This is the second year of the increasingly challenging linear A levels and we are proud that Sciences, Maths, English Literature and all Art related subjects show even further improvement on previously strong performances. Students have gained 355 grade As and A*s including 96 A*s, 15 in English Literature, 17 in Maths, 12 in Photography and 24 in Sciences. These qualifications require hard work across two years and our specialist sixth form teaching to support our students is a huge advantage.
Amazing results in Archaeology, with 100% pass rate and 14 out of 18 students achieving A* to B and equally impressive World Development statistics with 23 out of 34 gaining A*s or As, are tinged with sadness as these popular subjects are being discontinued this year.
Professional vocational courses have completely bucked the national downward trend with major success; over 140 students gained triple distinctions and above, which is the equivalent of 3 grade As at A-level many of those students gained triple distinction stars which is the equivalent to gaining three A*s at A-level. These are the College’s best ever vocational results, the proportion of Vocational students getting a D* almost doubled with particularly impressive performances in Business, Public Services, Animal Management and Art.”
