Newquay Tretherras Students are celebrating another fantastic set of A Level and Vocational results this year and have improved on last year’s record grades in a number of areas.
The number of students achieving A* grades almost doubled from last year with average point scores at A Level and in Vocational subjects comfortably above national averages, and higher than last year’s record results. With 99.4% pass rate at A Level, and 90% at AS Level the school is once again comfortably above national results.
47% of Year 13 A Level students gained A* to B passes, with the average grade across the Vocational subjects being Distinction *, the highest grade a student can achieve. As a result of these outstanding grades, the students are taking up places at some of the UK’s top universities with over 20% gaining places at prestigious Russell Group Universities.
Stand out performances in Year 13 include;
Jordan Holroyd who gained 2 A* and 2 A grades in Maths, Further Maths, Physics and Chemistry. She will take up a place at Warwick University in October to study Mathematics. Jordan has been the stand-out student of the year and has gained a place on the highest ranked Maths course in the UK.
Rose Cirant Carr and Josie Pearce achieved A*A*A grades, whilst Tom Lutey gained 4 A Levels at A*, 2 at A grade and one B and heads to Cardiff, as did Ebony Cave who will take up a place at Exeter to read Natural Sciences.
Holly Warn not only gained 2 A* grades at A Level but also a Distinction * in Child Care and will head to Plymouth to become a Primary School teacher.
The future looks bright; Year 12 results are equally as impressive with 34% of AS Level students gaining A and B grades, giving them a great platform for next year.
In Year 12 Lowenna Merrit stood out from the crowd with 4 A grades at AS Level, Isis Dockery and Beth Burton were hot on her heels with 3 A grades and a B each.
Chair of Newquay Education Trust Board of Directors Sarah Karkeek said, “We are absolutely thrilled by these outstanding results and my heartfelt congratulations go to the students, their families and staff who all worked so hard to achieve this”.
Departments such as Spanish (100% A*-B), English (89% A*-B) and Sociology (80% A*-B) have achieved some of the best results in the country. In all, 11 departments achieved 50% A*-B results or better in both AS and A Level or Vocational subjects, testament to the strong partnership between students and staff at Tretherras.
Sue Martin, CEO of Newquay Education Trust reflected on Results Day, saying “It is wonderful to see the culmination of seven years hard work when the students get the results they need to take the next, exciting step in their lives. I would like to congratulate all of our Sixth Form students on their results and wish them every success in the future, and thank the staff for their tremendous work in helping our students achieve their results”
