A-levels: King Alfred pupils celebrate success
STUDENTS at King Alfred School in Highbridge celebrated a successful set of A-level result
Although pupils gained a similar level of headline results to last year, the school said current Year 13 students had made greater progress from GCSE level to match the previous year’s scores.
Headteacher Andy Owen said: “This year’s and last year’s headline results are almost identical.
“However, last year’s A-level students had, on average, higher GCSE scores and as such our current cohort of students has made greater progress to match their results. “This has been achieved through the hard work of students and staff supported by parents and carers.”
Head of sixth form Jonathan Gaskell said the majority of students who had applied to university had been offered places, adding: “We are delighted that our young people who want to progress to further education have been offered places despite the much publicised issue of the huge number of applications to universities.”
