News - Hard Earned Results Open the Door to Exciting Opportunities

As one of Staffordshire’s top performing Sixth Forms we have become used to our students doing well, and we are really pleased to report that this year’s students have again done themselves proud. Against a background of reduced opportunities to re-sit modules and close scrutiny of exam boards to uphold standards, Westwood students have maintained strong levels of performance.

IMG_3668Across the board students have applied themselves with determination and perseverance and with the commitment and inspiration of their teachers and support and patience of their families they have been rewarded with some superb results.

With 52% of all Level 3 examination entries returning a grade of A*, A or B (72% A*-C), Westwood students performed at levels that allow them access to all the top universities. Particularly pleasing was performance in some of the so called “facilitating” subjects with over half of all entries in Chemistry, English Language and Mathematics being a grade B or above and 100% of entries in Further Mathematics. This success was shared by some of the creative subjects with over three quarters of entries in both Art and Design either A*, A or B and across all subjects more than 20 A* grades were awarded.

We take pride in being an inclusive College and at all levels of ability our students can celebrate results of which they can be really proud.

The results for our Level 3 Vocational courses were outstanding with a pass rate of 100% and in both Health and Social Care and Sports Studies 90% of the students gained at least a distinction. The following students achieved two distinction stars or better; Chloe Cooper, Jasmine Mear, Lila Robinson, Rebecca Slack, Ruby Vaughan, Ryan Dakin, Harley Dennison, Matthew Knight and Samuel Wheeldon.

PIMG_3776articular congratulations go to the following students who have achieved at least 2 A grades at A Level; Peter Aston (3A*, A) Tom Aston (2A*, 2A) Dale Corden (3A*, A) Megan Davies (2A*, A, B) George Dennison (2A*, B, C) Harriett Fowler (3A*, A) Rebecca Wood (2A*, A, B) Lucy Eeles (3A) Rhiannon Matthias (2A, B).

Performance at this level has enabled students to progress to an impressive range of opportunities from Oxford University (Languages), Durham (Chemistry) and Sheffield (Mechatronics and Robotics) to De Montford University (Contour Fashion) and Sheffield Hallam (Midwifery). The list of Higher Education destinations for our students this year is every bit as impressive as their results.

We are absolutely delighted to see so many students do so well. Many congratulations to you all.
