Featherstone Sixth Form are celebrating fantastic A Level and Applied A Level 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. Nearly 50% of A level grades were at grades at A* - B which allowed nearly all students to access the university of their choice. Our Applied A level equivalents were even more impressive with 82% 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 achiever, Aaran Karia (A*, A*, A, A) is off to Warwick Univeristy to study Maths and Physics. Aaran said “I want to thank all my teachers for their hard work”. Mandeep Bhachu (A*, A, B) is delighted to have got into UCL to study Psychology with Education. She put her good grades down to “dedication and keeping going when it gets tough”.
Kunal Singh (A*, A, B) wants to help students next year achieve their best. “I’m off to Birmingham to study Economics and I’m coming back to Featherstone in September to offer help and advice to other Economics students.”
Naomi Taylor (A*, A*, B) wanted to “thank everyone for their support” in helping her achieve her grades. She is going to Glasgow University to study Sociology in September.
Mark Thorley, Head of Sixth Form, added, “I just want to congratulate everyone today for their hard work and dedication”.
