Rosebery School is delighted to announce another set of exceptional A Level results.
A third of grades were at A and A* and 14 students achieved A* and A grades in every one of their exams, including Rachel Downey (A*A*AA), Andrea Mackenzie (A*A*AA) Georgia Hasell (A*A*A), Zoe Glasspool (A*A*A) and Izzy Kinder (A*A*A). Overall 82% of students achieved A*-C grades and these excellent outcomes have ensured that students from Rosebery are once again taking up places on prestigious university courses and on apprenticeships across the country.
Headteacher Ros Allen said that ‘We are thrilled that once again the hard work and dedication of our students and staff have been rewarded by such fantastic results, particularly in the context of the greater rigour and challenge of the new A Level qualifications. We extend our warmest congratulations to our students for whom, most importantly, these results mean that they are now able to take up exciting opportunities at university, in employment and onto apprenticeships.’
The university pathway is not for everyone, and I am pleased to report that, whilst a majority accepted places in Higher Education, many students begin Higher Apprenticeships this year, with the remainder going directly into employment or taking a gap year. As ever, the results and destinations reflect brilliantly on the commitment and hard work of our students, our inspirational teachers and the huge efforts made by all members of staff to help identify and support those individuals who elsewhere might have fallen by the wayside. We judge our success at Rosebery Sixth not just by how we help the most able, but by how we lift up and enthuse those for whom academic work is more demanding.
This departing Yr13 cohort have given so much to the school and local communities over the last two years at Rosebery Sixth. Huge amounts of time have been dedicated to leadership, sport, music, drama, outdoor activities and, above all, to supporting our junior students, fundraising for charity and setting themselves as positive role models. That our students managed to do all that and still achieve such great results is quite marvellous!
