Newent School and Sixth Form Centre Sixth Form students enjoyed another year of strong results in their sixth form programmes. We are incredibly proud of the achievements of all our students, despite all the uncertainty and circumstances we have found ourselves in. We continually ‘Strive for excellence’ ensuring each student is able to ‘be the best they can be’ no matter what their starting point when they join us. This mantra, and our support and guidance, have served our students well.
This is the strongest set of results in recent years and is testament to the dedication and work the students have put in. Director of Sixth Form Lissa Rogers said: “It has been an honour and privilege to work with such a fantastic group of students throughout their sixth form career. I have no doubt that they will continue to achieve and inspire others in their chosen courses and careers. We look forward to welcoming them back as members of our strong alumni community.”
Students have attained 38% of grades at A*-B. 73% of grades were calculated at A*-C with an average point score of 31.11 for A-Level students
Vocational qualifications have continued at Newent Community School with an impressive average point score of 41.67.
8 students achieved at least A grades or better in their courses at Newent Community School with many of our students gaining places at top universities and on higher apprenticeship schemes.
All students have accepted or have been given the option to enter Higher Education, Apprenticeships or the world of work. The majority of students have accepted courses at their first-choice university.
We wish all our students well as they strive forward in this ever-changing world and offer them any help they need, as well as ask them to stay in touch to help those who follow them in the coming years.
Principal Dawn Burke said: ‘It has been a pleasure working with the Year 13, in the short time I have known them. It has been a testing time and I am especially proud of our strong relationships with our students, and would like to thank all the staff for their commitment in supporting them and their families. It is great to see so many of our young people securing fantastic opportunities next year, not just at universities, but also with employers to follow degree apprenticeship programmes. We congratulate them and wish them every success as they move on.’
