Heathfield Community College is “confident” this year’s A-Level results will keep it in the top 25 per cent of schools and colleges across the country for adding value to students’ expected grades.
Forty-four per cent of students achieved the gold standard of A* to B and 77 per cent obtained A to C grades. The college’s provisional report also shows a pass rate of 100 per cent A* to E.
Headteacher, Alan Powell, said: “We are confident these performances will once again put us in the top 25 per cent of schools and colleges across the country for adding value to expected grades for students.
“This continues the trend of recent years, placing the college in the top 25 per cent of schools nationally, continuing a tradition of excellence at the college.”
The star performers with A* and As across all three of their subjects were Miles Geldart, who will be going on to study Medicine at UEA, and Jordan South and Kirsten Mann, who will be going on to study Modern Languages at Southampton and Psychology at Cardiff respectively.
Other students with at least two A* and As included Joe Beeney, Tom Boorman, Amy Brightwell, Tara McCallum, Mia Ambridge, Mark Brown, Cameron Grant, Daisy Barker, Megan Osborne, Michaela Sanderson, Ella Seviour, George Smith, Katie Walsh, Emma Wilby, Anastasia Winterton, Molly Powderly and Jordan Tapp.
Head of Sixth Form, Barry Howard also spoke highly of the current year 12 results. He said: “We would also like to recognise the efforts of our AS Level students, who achieved excellent results with a value added measure that will place these achievements in the top five per cent in the country, showing that student performance at Heathfield continues to go from strength to strength.”
Alan Powell wished all the students well for the future, adding: “These young people have worked hard and their achievements should be recognised and celebrated.”
