A Level Results 2017
At a time when A levels have become more challenging through changing specifications and linear exams; the students of South Holderness Sixth Form have more than met the challenge.
Today the students have evidenced the continuous improvement of the Sixth Form with students seeing all exam entries increase by a full grade in comparison to last year. Bearing in mind that last year the Sixth Form had already achieved added-value results that placed it in the top 10% of all colleges and sixth forms nationally and achieved the highest A level average point scores in the East Riding, this year’s results are truly remarkable.
Assistant Headteacher Neil Pinder has stated that these wonderful outcomes are the result of student commitment and truly excellent teaching. He says, “over these last five years we are seeing a constant improvement in results that comes from our hard-working students who are really benefitting from the time and care that each sixth form teacher provides in and out of the classroom. Our sixth form brings out the very best from these high-achieving students where they benefit from one-to-one support and excellent pastoral guidance.”
The Sixth Form achieved a pass rate of 99.9% in all A level subjects including the Extended Project Qualification and 100% in all vocational subjects. In total 84% of all students achieved the equivalent of an A*- B grade.
Headteacher Liz Croft stated that “it is a pleasure to see our students achieve so highly after studying for seven years at South Holderness Technology College.”
