Meadowhead A Level students celebrate outstanding results

Meadowhead School opened bright and early at 7am on Thursday 14th August to enable students to collect their A Level results. Students nervously opened their envelopes and then, at 8am, were able to log-on to the UCAS application system to confirm university places. Teachers, support staff and the school’s specialist careers adviser, Cerys Evans, were on hand to provide invaluable help and advice.  By the end of the day, almost all students had a clear idea of their route for the next year – whether into university, an apprenticeship or employment.

Meadowhead’s overall results were incredibly impressive – with 72.5% of entrants achieving A*- C and a 100% A-E pass rate. The results are a testament to the success of Meadowhead’s distinctive Sixth Form which features high-quality, small group teaching, warm and supportive pastoral care and an enrichment programme that is second-to-none.  There were especially strong results from the school’s renowned Art Textiles course with over 80% of students achieving an A or an A*, Spanish where all students achieved a B or above, and Philosophy and Ethics where over 70% of students achieved a B or above.
