Over the past five years we have been delighted to be consistently ranked in the top 10% of schools nationally for student achievement and this pattern of outstanding performance has continued in 2015 with our best results yet. We are incredibly proud of the efforts of all our students with the following Year 13 headlines contributing to a RECORD YEAR of results:
100% A Level and Level 3 BTEC pass rate – every student in every subject achieved
95% of students achieved at least one grade A*-B or equivalent
75% of all entries were graded at A*-B or equivalent
48% of all entries (almost half) were graded at A*-A or equivalent
The average UCAS point score entry surpassed last year’s record figure of 433 to 446
Head teacher, Andrew Daly, said: "Archbishop Holgate's School is once again celebrating record breaking results. These results are outstanding, with a 100% pass rate, 95% of students achieving at least one grade A*- B or equivalent and 75% of entries graded at A*- B or equivalent. Surpassing lasts year remarkable record UCAS average point score, the vast majority of students have secured places at their first choice university. We are very pleased to see that the commitment and hard work of our students has been rewarded with another set of excellent results, and are incredibly proud of all our students."
I firmly believe results like this are only possible due to the commitment of students and staff who, with the support of parents have created such a positive climate for learning. Our sixth formers have enthusiastically risen to the challenge of the last seven years, fully embracing all the opportunities presented to them, significantly contributing to our vibrant school community. We wish them all the very best for their futures."
Mr Daly added: "With a clear track record of outstanding results, a broad curriculum and outstanding teaching, Archbishop Holgate’s Sixth Form is firmly established as an outstanding provider of Post 16 education - both locally and nationally."
Mr Green-Harding, Head of Sixth Form said "We are delighted for our Year 13 students, who have been an asset to the school and the wider community - embodying the school’s values throughout their time with us. It has been a privilege and a pleasure to teach such a wonderful group of young people, who will be greatly missed. We wish them all the best and look forward to hearing about their future successes."
