Roding Valley High School celebrates “incredible” A-Level pass rate
Roding Valley Sixth Form is celebrating its first A-Level results with an “incredible” 98 per cent pass rate.
Head of School Sharon Jenner said: “This is a great achievement for our first cohort through, with 33 per cent of all grades achieved at A*-B grades.
“This clearly shows that our Sixth Form provision is very good indeed. An outstanding 93 per cent of our Year 13s had applied for university and the majority of the students achieved their first choice university.”
Among the outstanding performers, of those going on to university, are Olivia Tinker who achieved A*,A*, A plus A in the Extended Project Qualification. She will be going to Cambridge University to read History.
Other top students are Sophie Humphries (off to Durham University to read Economics), Hannah Smith (going to Durham University to read Anthropology) and Natasha McVey (going to Nottingham University to read Veterinary).
Sharon Jenner added: “It is both reassuring and rewarding to know that all of our students are now destined to continue their education either at well-respected universities or entering the field of work.
“The success of the students was down to the hard work and determination of the students, and the strong support of parents, leaders, teachers and tutors.
“We have created a real family atmosphere in the sixth Form Centre where staff know every student well and can support their progress.
” We wish Year 13 all the best for the future and look forward to welcoming Year 11 students into the Sixth Form on enrolment day (Thursday, August 24).
“We would also like to thank students, parents, staff, governors and our Consortium Partners for maintaining a positive and proactive partnership in our first set of results.”
