We are delighted that the efforts of students and staff have been rewarded by another set of superb A-Level results at Tudor Grange Academy Solihull. Students will be able to take the next step of their journey with confidence after securing outstanding results across the board which are a great reflection of their ongoing dedication and commitment.
The new, more rigorous, A-Level specifications were taken for the first time in all subjects this year. With 61% of grades at A*-B and an overall pass rate of 98%, this maintains the outstanding performance in recent years and reinforces Tudor Grange sixth form as an outstanding provider of post-16 education.
Principal Claire Smith said: “We are so proud of these A-level results and the opportunities they help secure. The fact that our students do so well at GCSE but then go on to make further gains and add further value in their sixth form performance is testimony to the teaching standards and the great efforts of the students. These results set them up perfectly to move onto the next stage of their lives whether that be a university course, an apprenticeship or starting a job in the workplace. We are delighted with the results and want to congratulate both students and staff on this success.”
Amongst the many individual success stories, the following students all achieved 3 A grades or better: Nathan Aldulaimi, Lucy Burwood, Katie Covill, Hannanah Islam, Musa Islam, Katie Male, Rohan Pandit, Anna Richmond. Natasha Wilson and Thomas Woodhams.
Students will be moving far and wide as they take up their places at university in September. Notable achievements are Anna Richmond (A*,A*,A*) who will take up a financial accountancy apprenticeship with Mazars in Birmingham, Nathan Aldulaimi (A*/A*/A) who will study Economics and Management at Kings College, London and Thomas Woodhams (A*/A*/A/A) who will study Mathematics at Warwick. Several students were also successful in their application to Medical Schools, following a rigorous application process involving interviews and supplementary examinations.
Director of sixth form, Laura Sweetman, commented: “Competition for places is always extremely fierce at post-18 so I am delighted that our students leave us with both the results they need and as fully rounded students ready to embrace the opportunities that are now open to them. What we have seen this year is students achieving results beyond their own expectations which is always satisfying. We are all so pleased as the year group as a whole are wonderful and will go on to make positive contributions to the world – they are so deserving of the success they have achieved.”
