Trust celebrates excellent A level results across the board
Congratulations to all of our students from across the Brooke Weston Trust who have been celebrating their excellent A Level exam results. Many have secured places at some of the country’s top universities including Cambridge and other prestigious Russell Group universities.
In addition to individual student successes, the Trust has much to celebrate with Thomas Clarkson, Corby Business and Kettering Science Academies all recording significant improvements on last year’s results.
At Thomas Clarkson Academy there were massive leaps in both the A2 and AS figures with those scoring A* - B grades at A2 increasing to 81% from last year’s 57% and the AS results jumping to 87% (from 66%) for those achieving A* - E grades.
Corby Business Academy marked a 25% improvement in its success rate over last year’s figures with hikes in grades across all subjects, particularly chemistry, physics, maths, English and media.
The majority of students at Kettering Science Academy achieved or exceeded their targets with the number gaining 3 A* - B grades trebling this year and 60% securing results up to at least a B grade.
At Brooke Weston Academy 55% of all entries were at A*/A/B and 83% of grades were at A*- C. The average point score per student was 325, indicating a profile of ABB grades overall. More than 80% of Brooke Weston leavers have secured university places with the remainder opting for professional or vocational apprenticeships.
Each school had a number of high achievers who were typically awarded with multiple A* and A grades. Special mention must go to Kettering Science Academy’s trio who will be studying medicine. Head boy, Dylan Birk is going to Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge, Connor Beadsworth has won a place at Manchester while Arash Ganji will study at the University of Exeter.
William Snaith and Henry Griffiths were joint top performers at Brooke Weston, securing 2 A* and 2 A grades each. They will study chemical engineering and mathematics at Bath and Durham respectively. Other career paths chosen by Brooke Weston students include law, zoology, accountancy and the sciences.
Associate Principals from each school have congratulated their students and look forward to building upon this year’s success to enhance Sixth Form provision and performance across the Trust.
CEO Dr Andrew Campbell said: ‘This has been a very encouraging set of results that shows a trend of continuous improvement in the Sixth Form in both academic and vocational subjects. Our students are increasingly able to access top universities or else to secure good apprenticeships and job opportunities and I congratulate them all on these results. Thanks also to our teaching and support staff whose expertise and professionalism has contributed to this excellent outcome.’
