Southend High School for Boys celebrating record-breaking A-level results

Clearing Southend High School for Boys celebrating record-breaking A-level results
Parmenio Sano | 17 Agosto, 2017, 17:24

Many Ryde School pupils are celebrating their A-Level results today (Thursday) with more than a third of results graded "A*' or 'A" and over a quarter of pupils getting at least 2 A grades in the largely reformed exams.

A full timetable of opening hours for the helpline can be found here.

It comes as the NSPCC revealed it has delivered more than 1,000 counselling sessions to school children ahead of their exam results in 2016/17.

IT'S a disgusting feeling after weeks of anticipation finding out you've just missed out on that uni place you were so looking forward to.

"I would encourage anyone with a query or concern about their CCEA examination results to pick up the phone and give us a call". The courses wouldn't be as beneficial to me.

Mark Simpson (Head of School) said, "Once again, we are really pleased with our A Level results".


This year's cohort of A-level students at the school achieved an average grade of C in their GCSEs, and 77 per cent got A* to C in their A-levels.

Alfie Woodhouse, from Heptonstall, a former pupil at Calder High School, will read chemistry at the University of York, after receiving A*, A*, A* grades in French, chemistry and maths. "It was difficult and it was very hard but if you work hard, it just pays off, that's the way it is", the 18-year-old said. Value added is strongly positive.

Burnley College principal Hugh Bramwell said: "It's been a truly fantastic day here at Burnley College Sixth Form Centre, celebrating the incredible, record-breaking success of our talented students".

"These superb results are a great credit to the talent and hard work of our students, and show they have made great progress over their time at College". Of the 138 students, seven achieved straight A*s, and 39 students (28 per cent) achieved all A*or A grades. "I am now excited to be studying Maths at Nottingham University".

Mollie Mahoney was happy to find out she had achieved in A in finance and Bs in government and politics and business studies. "It's really tiny so it was ideal and it was her top choice so I'm so glad she got in". But, alongside this: check out university websites, brochures and social media accounts; look at universities' Teaching Excellence Framework rating (ULaw's is a gold); research league tables; ask your friends for university recommendations; and make use of websites such as Which?

Top universities are dropping the grades required for highly coveted courses "more than ever" this year in a scramble for students.
