John Willmott students celebrate success
John Willmott students are celebrating huge successes after receiving their A- Level results with an increased number of students securing the higher grades.
Terri Richards, Assistant Headteacher, Sixth Form, said: “We are proud to report that a fabulous 48% of A Level results were either A*, A or B. With 15% being at the A* and A grades. This builds on our results from last year with an overall 3% increase in grades at A* & A and a fabulous 17% increase in grades at A*-B’
Special mention must go to Cenk Balu who gained an A* in Maths, A* in Further Maths and A* in physics and an A in his EPQ. Cenk has secured a place to read Aeronautical Engineering at the University of Cambridge next year.”
Cenk said: “I am happy that all the hard work has paid off and I am looking forward to starting a whole new course. I’ve picked aeronautical engineering as space exploration can only develop and I am interested in a future career in the forces.”
In addition, outstanding results have ensured that Mohammed Hamzah and Dho-Alfikar Hussen will be reading medicine at Aston University. The University of Aston has proved popular this year with Lewis Beardmore reading Mechanical Engineering. Alice Brengosz will be pursuing a nursing degree at The University of Sheffield and congratulations must also go Taylor Bricknell reading English and Abbie Sparkes reading sociology at The University of Birmingham as well as Ismaeel Ali reading Computer Science at The University of Durham.
Tracey Peters, Headteacher, commented: “We are thrilled to see such amazing and well deserved results among our year 13 students. Most pleasing to see was the significant improvement in our science A-Levels with Physics, Chemistry and Biology, as well as Maths being our top performing subjects.
2018/19 has been a very successful year for John Willmott School. Ofsted has acknowledged the progress the school has made and these results are a clear sign that the students at John Willmott can and do achieve at the highest level. Many of our students have secured places at the prestigious Russell group Universities after facing stiff competition for places.
Well done to all our students on achieving some well-deserved outcomes we wish them all the very best for the future whatever path they choose whether
they are studying at university or pursuing an apprenticeship or work. This year they have worked hard to live up to the high standards, high expectations and huge aspirations that we have for them.”
John Willmott School is now part of the Arthur Terry Learning Partnership. Neil Warner, ATLP executive headteacher (secondary) said: “Congratulations to students and staff at John Willmott School. This is a phenomenal achievement, with some sterling performances and I wish all students every success for the future.”
