Sixth Form A Level Results 2018
Students of St Margaret Ward Catholic Academy are celebrating success in their A Level results, marking another year of academic and pastoral achievements.
Students have again made good progress from their GCSE results to achieve some pleasing Post 16 results.
The overall pass rate was 97.5%. The number of students achieving grades A* to B was 38% at A Level and the number of A* and A grades was 7% across all qualifications.
We should also consider the recent reforms to subjects have made them tougher with national pass rates hitting an eight-year low.
We are delighted that the futures that our students dreamed of can now be realised with virtually all of our students moving on to their destinations of choice.
Mr Mc Kenna would like to congratulate the students for their very good results, celebrating their achievements through their dedication, determination, and hard work. They have demonstrated they are committed learners, and above all, exceptional people.
would also like to pass on my sincere thanks to the Sixth Form Teachers, the Sixth Form Tutor Team, Mrs Rhodes, Miss Hosey and all those who support the Sixth Form team.
