Featherstone Sixth Form are once again celebrating fantastic A Level and BTEC Level 3 results with many students achieving top grades.
Gerry Wadwa, Headteacher, commented: “We were all delighted that the exceptional hard work of students and staff was reflected in a very pleasing set of A level results this year. 52% of A level grades were at grades at A* – B which allowed nearly all students to access the university of their choice. Our BTEC Level 3 equivalents were even more impressive with 93% grades at the top Distinction/Distinction* grading. Our Year 13 students have shown tremendous commitment throughout the year to achieve this notable academic success and are also to be congratulated for their very important contribution to wider school life.”
Students were delighted with their results. Our top achievers, Simranjeet Sandhu (1A*, 3As) and Kherunnisa Qureshi (1A*, 3As) we thrilled with their results. Simranjeet said “I think I did well because I didn’t get too nervous. My teachers offered a lot of support and I was able to go to them with all my questions”. Kherunnisa added “I agree, my teachers helped me a lot to get these results.” Azan Hussain (3As) is excited about the future. “I’m really pleased and looking forward to studying Pharmacy at UCL.”
Umra Butt (2As, 2Bs) said “My teachers were amazing, they responded to emails at all times and were always available for help and advice, I hear that it isn’t like this in other schools. I wouldn’t be where I am now without my hard work and the support and resources at Featherstone”
Joel D’Souza (BTEC 3D*s) said “I came from India to Featherstone Sixth Form and I was made to feel very welcome, there is a really friendly atmosphere here. I really like the fact we have our own building and we are lucky to have a calm environment to work in”.
Mark Thorley, Head of Sixth Form, added, “I just want to congratulate everyone today for their hard work and dedication. Students and staff should be very pleased with the 100% pass rate for BTEC courses and 99% for A Level”.
