A Level Success!


As the first group to complete the new, linear A level courses determined solely on exam performance, results have improved on last year as students at Rastrick Sixth Form have once again achieved a high number of places on highly competitive courses at top universities, with the majority securing their first choice place.

Students will progress to study a wide range of courses including Medicine, Bio Chemistry, Law, Economics & Politics, Textiles, and Computer Game Design.

There have been some outstanding individual performances over a wide range of subjects and courses:

Progressing to study Bio Chemistry at University following three As in Biology, Chemistry and Maths, Emilia Gregory said, “ I am really pleased with my results as I worked very hard and did hours of revision. I’m really looking forward to starting my course at Manchester.”

Hannah Brooke has high aspirations and is really looking forward to the challenge ahead as she starts her course studying Medicine at Leeds, which has just been voted University of the Year by The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide.

With lots of artistic talent, Sophie Dare is delighted to have achieved A*s in both Art and Textiles as well as a Distinction * in IT. She is staying nearer home to study a Textiles course in Surface Design at the University of Huddersfield, which will develop her practical approach and creativity through exploration of the specialist areas of knitting, weaving, embroidery/stitch and print/dye.

On a more vocational studies route, Samuel McMoran excelled, achieving Distinction* in Applied Science, ICT and Business. Samuel said, “I’m really pleased with my results! I really want to work in the motor industry rather than go to University, so am looking at apprenticeship options at the moment.”


Headteacher, Steve Evans is incredibly happy about the progress students have made and adds,
“ The students’ good results in both A Levels and Vocational courses have ensured that all our students have achieved their routes onto University courses, apprenticeships or employment. The smiling faces this morning demonstrate the result of the hard work by the students and staff over the two years.”
