Hayesbrook A Level and Vocational Results Day
Hayesbrook School Sixth Formers, for the second consecutive year, celebrated a record set of A Level and Vocational results.
The 100% pass rate at A Level exceeded national and Kent averages. This was supported by improved BTEC vocational success and a 100% pass rate in the Computing Cambridge Technical programme. Every student left the Sixth Form with either 2, 3 or 4 A Levels or their vocational equivalences.
The provisional average points scores per entry for academic courses is 184.7 and for vocational programme 242.8. Both figures showing an improvement on 2014 outcomes.
In BTEC courses 27 students recorded the high Distinction grades with 24 of those students achieving at least one prestigious Distinction * grade in Sport, Business and Computing.
Luke Curtis impressed with his A Level Mathematics and double Distinction * performance. He was joined by Skyler Burbridge, Josh Draper-Morgan and Samuel Howland who all secured prestigious A Level grades and 2 BTEC distinction* results.
Connor Hamilton walked away with 4 A Level equivalences which included 2 Distinction * grades. Head Boy, Thomas Coleman, bagged a hat trick of Distinction * grades alongside George Bateman, Robert Bellingham, Adam BzdregaJ, Jack Hobbs, Wesley Humphrey, Lance Naude, Henry Partridge and Rohit Pun.
A delighted Principal, David Day, said “This excellent set of results will be a major boost to the university and managerial employment aspirations of our Sixth Formers. With no A Level failures parents can be confident a Hayesbrook Sixth Form education provides the grounding for self-advancement and top grades. The teachers have been magnificent in insisting upon high expectations in both academic A levels and vocational BTEC courses.”
Collette Nelson, Vice Principal, remarked “I would like to congratulate our students on a well deserved set of A Level examination and vocational equivalent grades. I am particularly proud of the number of Distinction * results achieved this year. I wish the students continued success, their hard work and determination are admirable qualities which should hold them in good stead in the future.”
Head Boy Callum Porritt said: “Overall I am pleased. It goes to show how difficult the examinations are”. Fellow sixth-former Louis Plunket said “I am very pleased with my History result; I achieved a B which I was not expecting”. Harry Smith added: “ It is encouraging for the future”.
The Hayesbrook School is looking forward to the high numbers of Sixth Form applicants for September 2015 places, emulating the success of the class of 2015.
