Another clean sweep of passes was achieved by Sidcot School students today (Thursday).

The GCSE pass rate was 100 per cent, with 46 per cent of students achieving grades from 9-7.

Grades 9 to 4 were received by 94 per cent of pupils.

In further maths, photography, food technology and computer science 100 per cent of pupils bagged grades 9 to 7.

A-level results: 100 per cent pass rate at Sidcot School.

Last year, almost 90 per cent of exams were graded 4 or better and grades 9 to 7 were received in 39.1 per cent of cases, and grades 4 and above in 87 per cent of exams.

Teenagers received their results electronically this morning, instead of collecting them from the school in person.

Iain Kilpatrick, headmaster, said: “I am delighted with this year’s examination performance, which shows a 100 per cent pass rate for Sidcot students in all areas. This has meant 96 per cent of those applying to university got their first choice of course and institution, with 43 per cent going to Russell Group universities.

“However, this has been a very challenging year and behind all the statistics lies the hard work, determination and resilience of our students who worked solidly over the two years of their courses as well as assiduously online during the period of school closure, meaning that they are excellently placed to progress in their studies, either at university or in Sixth Form.

“I wish all our year 11 and 13 students the very best for the future.

“They should feel proud of what they have achieved, none of which would have been possible without the support of their teachers and encouragement of their families.”
