Fantastic A-Level Results

Sixth Form Students at Castle Manor Academy are celebrating today as they collect another excellent set of A-level results. This year’s results are amongst the best the academy has ever recorded, exceed aspirational expectations and will provide the students with a superb foundation to base the next steps of their lives as young adults on.

This years results show that 96% of courses were passed at grades A*-E with 60% of grades at the A*-C benchmark. On average, when all courses studied are included, students achieved results equivalent to three B grades at A2 level. Results come from a broad range of traditional academic and modern, relevant vocational subjects, reflecting the academy’s continuing focus on meeting the needs of individual students through the provision of an appropriate, varied curriculum. This excellent set of results demonstrates that the Sixth Form at Castle Manor can sustain positive growth under new leadership and provides a solid platform for the continued development of the curriculum and wider sixth form provision, under the banner of CBSixth in 2014 and beyond.

This year 47% of students made firm applications for University places, with the overwhelming majority of these places already confirmed and the remaining students making decisions upon the receipt of results. Students will be heading off to Universities up and down the country to study a wide variety of courses. These courses include Mathematics, Games Development, Philosophy, Accounting Music Production, Marketing and Anthropology.

Matthew Gibson, Head of School, reflected the positivity of students and staff “I and all the staff at Castle Manor are very proud of the results achieved by the students today. They reflect the hard work, commitment and talent of the students and the dedication and support of all the staff that have worked with them during their time in the Sixth Form. We wish the students well with their future challenges, be they further study at university or college, work based apprenticeships or employment and know that they will make a positive contribution to their communities in the future as committed, determined and talented young people.”
