|Congratulations to Eastbury A Level Students|
Eastbury School celebrates another set of excellent A level results
Eastbury School is delighted to announce another highly successful year for Sixth Form students who have once again exceeded our expectations and produced the sort of A level results which will enable them to go on to an outstanding range of universities and professions.
The overall pass rate is 98%, with 76% higher A level grades (A* to C), a significant 5% improvement on the previous year. We congratulate all of our 92 students in Year 13 who have qualified to attend university with currently 84 taking up the opportunity, again an increase on previous years.
Students such as Kayley (A*AA), Nazli (AAB), Ayun (A*ABB) and Britany (BBC) have won places at prestigious Russell Group universities with the first three students reading Maths and Britany going on to study Biotechnology. Further congratulations are due to Jeanette, Doreta, Qasimand Shumanawho also achieved the much prized A* grade. It’s extraordinary to think that students who joined us in Year 7 as fresh-faced 11 year-olds are now going on to study such world-leading and world-influencing topics as Aerospace Engineering (Talal), Business Computing Systems (Jaspreet), Criminology (Kim), Electrical and Electronic Engineering (Ali), Film Studies (Nicholas), History (Sannah), International Politics (Ozge ), Psychology (Momtaz) and Sports Science (Dupe). In October, over 45 universities including Bath, Brunel, City, De Montfort, Hertfordshire, Keele, Leicester, Liverpool, Middlesex, Nottingham Northampton and Queen Mary’s will open their doors to our students taking a range of 75 different courses!
We also run an extremely successful programme of BTEC and Vocational courses at Eastbury and we continue our outstanding status with a 100% pass rate and 6 students achieved the new triple Distinction * qualification, equivalent to 3 A* grades at A level. Many congratulations to the following ICT Diploma students – Mohammed, Dejan, Jaspreet, Liridon, Simonand Kibriawith considerable credit going to Lamin, Saajan, Yasin who achieved A*A*A in this course and Bonifacewho achieved A*AA in his Sports Science diploma.
Headteacher, Mr. David Dickson, said ‘Gettingthe best from and for all our learners’ is our mission statement and this is fast becoming more and more of a reality. I am so pleased with the results; it is a tribute to the hard work and effort of students, together with highly professional and dedicated staff and supportive families, governors and local education authority. I am very proud of all the students and staff. In these difficult economic times, achieving good results and developing interpersonal skills improves their life chances by getting them into good universities and onto excellent career paths. It is a privilege to work with such a great staff team and enthusiastic students; I look forward to leading the school to even greater successes in the future.”
