Two months after the final exam was completed, the wait is over for our sixth form students who yesterday received their results. For many of our students, it has been a nervous wait, as their grades determined whether or not they would be accepted onto their university course of choice or the next stage of their higher education.
Gloucester Academy is delighted to announce that a number of our sixth form students achieved magnificent results. Two of our high-performing students were Victoria Ironboinose and Kelsey Webb. Victoria achieved an A* in Italian, a B in Spanish, a C in AS photography, and an E in mathematics and has been accepted to study applied languages at the University of Portsmouth. Kelsey achieved a B in sociology, C in history, and D in English and will be studying law at the University of Worcester.
Overall, the results from Gloucester Academy Sixth Form were very promising, demonstrating widespread progress from 2018. The percentage of students achieving at least three A*-E grades at A-level rose from 16% to 25%, while the proportion of students achieving two A*-E A-level grades also increase from 50% to 54.2%.
The results of students studying for vocational qualifications were similarly encouraging. A higher percentage of students achieved three vocational qualifications in 2019 than in 2018, as did the percentage of students attaining two vocational qualifications, which increased from 29% to 46.7%.
In collecting their results yesterday, students arrived at Gloucester Academy for the last time. For a number of them, it brought an end to seven years of attending the school. We are extremely proud of our sixth form students’ achievements and wish them the best of luck for the future.
