Outstanding A level results at The Purbeck School
Once again Purbeck students have posted impressive results with 55% of A Level students being awarded at least one grade at an A*/A or B. Some subject areas have achieved exceptional success; Sport double award leading the way with over 80% of students being awarded A*/A grades – a phenomenal achievement. A significant number of other subjects achieved over 60% of their grades awarded at either an A*/A or B including Maths, History, Geography, Geology, Philosophy and Ethics, Sociology, and Computing,
As a result nearly all of our students have been able to secure the grades they require to progress to their first choice of University or to take up their apprenticeship placements. There have been some superb individual results with a number of students achieving A*/A grades across the board. An exceptional 3A*s will enable Joe Denny to read Engineering at Bristol University, with 1A* and 2A grades Olivia Ashworth will be reading Bio Medicine at Cardiff University and Kirsty Patterson will be reading Industrial Design at Brunel University, and with 3 A’s Katherine Stillman will be reading Bio Chemistry at Bath University and Max Afful will be reading Physics at Bath University.
Adam Darley, Headteacher, said ‘I am extremely proud of the achievements of all our students and these results are a real testament to the hard work and effort they have consistently shown over the past two years. Being in the sixth form here is about teamwork, and these results could not have been achieved without the exceptional quality of teaching and the dedicated 6th form support network that we have here at the school. We wish our students all the very best for the future’.
