'Strong results' for Abbeywood A-Level students
Published on: 19 Aug 2016
This year has seen a very strong set of results for post 16 students at Abbeywood Community School with some stunning individual performances. There has been an improvement in A level outcomes by an average of a grade per student with 44% of students achieving A*-B grades.
Vocational outcomes (BTECs) are excellent and have improved again from last year’s strong outcomes with an amazing 97% of students achieving Distinction* and Distinction grades.
Highest achievers in Year 13 are listed below with their grades and destinations but special mention must be made of 2 students for their achievements:
Ethan Martin has gained the grades he needed to study at Oxford University and is the first student from Abbeywood Community School to achieve that milestone.
Remarkably also, Josh Tutin in Year 9 achieved a B grade in his A level Maths in the same class as Ethan – this is an unbelievable achievement.
