Students at Wilmslow High celebrate A level success

Sixth form students at Wilmslow High School are celebrating another set of impressive A level results today, 50% of which were A* to B grades.

Overall 23% of the results were graded A* and A and 7% were A*. In total 28 students achieved the equivalent of 3 A grades or above in their A levels or BTECs.

Headteacher, Dr James Pullé commented: "On behalf of the staff and Governors of Wilmslow High School I would like to congratulate our students on the excellent A-Level and BTEC results that they are receiving today. Such high standards of performance are the result of the dedication to learning and commitment to rise to challenges shown by every individual involved, so this is a moment to celebrate and cherish what their efforts have achieved.

"Collectively these results also affirm the judgement made by Ofsted in May this year that provision in the Wilmslow High School sixth form is "strong", that students make "good progress" and that they "enjoy their studies". The foundations for this are provided by "strong" teaching, where "Teachers' high expectations and good subject knowledge mean that students are prepared well for examinations."

He added "Of course, examination results only form part of the outcomes from a good education and this cohort have participated extensively in and contributed greatly to our Wider Curriculum throughout their time at the school.

"As a result, we are confident that they have developed the rich blend of powerful knowledge, versatile skills and character qualities that will help them to thrive in life, learning and work. We know they will go on to achieve much more at university, on high quality apprenticeship programmes, and in their careers and we wish them well in the exciting challenges and opportunities that life will bring. I am sure they will join me in expressing thanks for the continuing support of their parents and the hard work and commitment provided by school staff over their years of secondary education."
