A LEVEL RESULTS AUGUST 2017 - AT EASTBURY COMMUNITY SCHOOL
Eastbury Community School celebrates another set of excellent A level results with 99% pass rate
Eastbury Community School is delighted to announce another successful year for Sixth Form students who have once again produced the A level and BTEC results which will enable them to go on to an outstanding range of Universities, and Higher Level & Degree Apprenticeships. Almost half of all grades achieved at A Level were at A* to B (44%) and 1 in 6 (14%) were A*/A grades. Staff and students have been working hard and these results come at the end of a very impressive year in which the school was shortlisted for two prestigious Times Educational Supplement awards in Mathematics and Science.
Many Eastbury students have received offers from Russell group universities this year. Top Universities are now getting ready to welcome students from Eastbury including the London School of Economics, Kings College London, University College London, Queen Mary’s, Manchester, Brunel, and Reading to study a range of exciting subjects (a sample of students and their courses can be found at the end of this press release). Eastbury is also extremely pleased that an increasing number of students will be progressing to Higher Level and Degree Apprenticeships, including Kirsty Milne who secured a highly competitive Engineering Apprenticeship through the University of Manchester.
