We are tremendously proud this morning of all of our Year 13 students as they receive the results for their A Level and BTEC courses. The results are excellent and a tribute to their hard work, talent and ambition.
Destinations are wide and varied and almost all students have managed to secure a place at their first choice institution including Russell Group universities from Edinburgh to Exeter and a broad mix of competitive courses at a really good range of universities.
Our students are going on to study courses ranging from Medicine, Mathematics and Veterinary Science through History, Geography and German to Computer Science and Natural Sciences, English Literature and Economics, Aerospace Engineering and Anthropology and many more; courses in design, sport and nutrition, business and the creative arts are strong threads which run through many of the destinations. In addition, students are going on to foundation courses, competitive higher level apprenticeships and excellent opportunities in work-based training.
In summary, for the 141 students in Year 13 this year:
• 15% of all entries gained A* grades
• 43% of all entries gained A*-A grades
• 73% of all entries gained A*-B grades
• 90% of all entries gained A*-C grades
• 100% of all entries gained A*-E grades
A huge thankyou must also go to the staff at Wallingford School who have supported these young people through two years which have not always been straightforward and also to their families who have shared this sometimes uncertain journey and been there with them for every step of the way.
Congratulations to each and every young person who has received their results today and we wish them well for their undoubtedly very bright and promising futures.
John Marston, Headteacher
