Allerton Grange celebrates A-Level results
Allerton Grange sixth form students joined others across the country collecting their A Level results today. A fantastic 92% of our students secured a pass rate (grades A-E), with 75% of subjects, including Maths, English Language, English Literature, Geography, History and Law, securing a 100% pass rate. Results in a number of subjects, including English and Maths, saw improved results compared to last year. 93% of students have applied to university and the majority successfully secured the grades they needed for their first-choice preference.
Staff were joined by colleagues from Leeds Trinity University, The Apprenticeship Hub from Leeds City Council, Bradford University and Leeds City College FE and HE centres, and were on hand to offer advice and support to students as they confirmed their place on their chosen course.
“I’m happy with my results, I’ve got onto the Sports and Exercise Science course I’ve applied for at Middlesex University. Now I’m back in school though, I’m really sad to be leaving, although Ms Barlow said she would give me a job if I came back in the future!” Hamza Ahmed.
Fizah Iqbal achieved a B in English Literature and two As in Law and Religious Studies. She said, “I’m really happy I’ve got the results I needed to study Anthropology at UCL. I haven’t slept at all last night worrying, but yes, I’m glad I can do what I want to do at university.”
Morgan Mellor achieved A* in Maths, and two As in Biology and Physics to secure his first-choice preference to study Civil Engineering at Leeds University.
Channelle Brown achieved an A* in English last year, after deciding to repeat Year 12 to focus on one subject, and has since received an A in Biology and a B in Chemistry this year to complete her studies in sixth form. “It’s been a bit of a long journey for me, but it’s all worked out in the end and I’ve got the grades I need to study Medical Science at The University of Leeds.”
Lorna McDermott, Careers Advisor, said “Congratulations to all our sixth form students who have achieved excellent results this year enabling them to move on to university or Higher Level Apprenticeships and work based training.
