Students at Westwood College are celebrating after another successful year of A Level Results.
With 52% of all examination entries returning a grade of A*, A or B, with 73 per cent A*to C, Westwood students performed at levels that allow them access to all the top universities.
Particularly pleasing was performance in some of the so called “facilitating subjects”, and in Chemistry, English Language, Maths and RE over two thirds of the students achieved either grade A*, A or B.
In Biology and Geography this was nearly 60 per cent.
The results for the Level 3 Vocational courses had a pass rate of 100 per cent and in both Health and Social Care and Sports Studies 75 per cent of the students gained at least double distinction.
The following students achieved two distinction stars; Kirsty Alcock, Harley Dennison, Elliot Edwards, Lauren Frith, Jade Hambleton, Stephanie Mathias, Jasmine Mear, Emily Bagshaw, Alex Pegnall, Dean Rhodes Jack Stubbs, Mathew Wakelin-Marchant and Lydia Whittaker.
Particular congratulations go to the following students who have achieved at least 2 A grades at A Level; Maddy Blatherwick-Plumb (AAB), Philip Borisov (AAB), Kim Butterworth (AABB), Clarissa Docksey (A*AA), Charlie Eardley (A*A*A*A), Rhys John (AAB), Conor McDonald (AABB), Roisin Markham (AAAB), Abbie Millis (A*AA), Catherine Nadin (AAAB), Carla Sanzeri (AAC), Chelsea Spencer (AAB), Jon Stickland (AABB), Chelsey Thorn (AAB) and Jack Wilson (AAA).
Performance at this level has enabled students to progress to an impressive range of opportunities from Cambridge (Natural Sciences) and Birmingham (Law) to Falmouth (Photography) and Keele (Mental-Health Nursing).
The list of Higher Education destinations for our students this year is every bit as impressive as their results.
Richard Hey, headteacher at Westwood College, said: "As one of Staffordshire’s top performing Sixth Forms we are well used to our students doing well, and this year is no different.
"Across the board students have applied themselves with determination and perseverance and with the commitment and inspiration of their teachers and support and patience of their families they have been rewarded with some superb results.
"We take pride in being an inclusive College and at all levels of ability our students can celebrate results they can be really proud of.
"We are absolutely delighted to see so many students do so well. Many congratulations to you all."
