A Level Results Day 2015

Thursday 13th August saw Meadowhead Sixth Formers head in to school 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, members of the Sixth Form team and the school’s specialist careers adviser, Cerys Evans, were on hand to provide invaluable help and advice. A level results day

Meadowhead’s overall results were excellent – with over 70% of entrants achieving A*- C grades, and over two-thirds of students achieving or exceeding challenging personal targets. Perhaps most impressively, every single one of the students who began their A Level course in September completed in the following July. The results are a testament to the success of Meadowhead’s distinctive Sixth Form which features ambitious, small group teaching, and warm and supportive pastoral care. 

There were especially strong results from the school’s renowned Art Textiles course with over half of the students achieving an A or an A*. In French 80% of students achieved a B grade or above, while in English Literature all students achieved at least a C. In History, over 80% of students achieved a C grade or above, while in Sport two-thirds of students achieved the highest possible award of distinction.
