A Level Results
Rosebery School is delighted to announce another set of exceptional A Level results
1 in 3 grades were at A and A* and 15 students achieved A* and A grades in every one of their exams, including Mae Evans (A*A*A* A), Alice Rothwell (A*A*A*) Leana Greenstein (A*A*A), Anabel Hindmarsh (A*A*A), Muskaan Rizvi (A*A*A), Ciara Sirkett (A* A* A) and Sophie Watts (A*A* A). Overall, 80% 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.
Executive Headteacher Ros Allen said that ‘A Level examinations are rigorous and challenging and remain the gold standard for students across the country. We take great pleasure from another set of excellent results, which reflect the dedication of our students and staff and which, once again, have ensured that our students have been able to take up the fantastic university and employment opportunities that they fully deserve.’
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 Year 13 cohort have given so much to the school and local communities over the last two years at Rosebery Sixth Form. 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!
Rosebery Sixth Form was recognised as Outstanding by OFSTED in May 2017.
I would like to thank all parents and carers for all that you have done to encourage and support your daughters and Rosebery School through the last two years.
Stephen Phillips Head of Sixth Form
