Students at The New Sixth are celebrating after the success of their first ever set of A level results with 79% of students achieving at least 3 A*-E grades. An impressive 96% of students achieved A*-E grades, 50% achieved A*-B grades and 20% attained an impressive A*-A grade.
Outstanding individual performances from determined and talented students secured places at universities across the UK, a wide range of apprenticeship schemes and employment opportunities.
There were some exceptional individual performances from our ambitious and gifted Sixth Form students: Ben Partridge is now on his way to Northampton University to study Paramedics. Harry Whitehead will be studying Chemical Engineering at Swansea University and Ben Wright will be furthering his studies at City of Bath College studying Media Studies.
Barnaby Ash, Headteacher at St Mark’s School said: “We are delighted for our students and all that they have achieved in their sixth form studies at The New Sixth. They have all attained the results that they needed to secure their university or education setting of choice. The New Sixth provides a high quality sixth form education for all and we look forward to building on these successes to continue to raise the bar for sixth form students in the local area.”
