A Level Success

Congratulations to the Class of 2017

Once again, the Upper Sixth have achieved a wonderful set of A Level results and spirits are high in the Common Room as they come in to collect them.


Over three quarters of all grades were A* – B; a truly impressive statistic. 23 subjects delivered a 100% pass rate, demonstrating the remarkable range and depth of the A Level results this year. Well over half the students in the cohort also achieved no grade lower than a B which is particularly pleasing.

Charlotte Marshall is delighted to have secured a two year apprenticeship with James Hall Ltd after completing several projects with them throughout her Sixth Form studies. Having achieved an A and 2 Bs in her A Levels, Charlotte is excited about her future and putting all that she has learnt into practice when she embarks upon her trainee management programme later this month.


The Westholme Theatre has become a second home to May Daley and she will continue to take to the stage at the Italia Conti Academy of Theatre Arts to complete her Acting degree after achieving an A and 2 Bs in her A Levels.


Mrs Horner was delighted to praise students and staff alike for their hard work: “This year, against a backdrop of significant national examination reform, Westholme Upper Sixth Formers have produced another consistently excellent set of A Level results. I am especially proud of our increased A*- B grades to 76.5%. These are the top grades which secure the sought after places at university and demonstrate to employers that our young people have the ability to learn, to work independently and to excel. Westholme’s A Level achievements are testament to the dedication of our teachers, the diligence of the students and of course their supportive families. It is a privilege to see that the potential I knew was there has been justly fulfilled and I wish every one of them the best of luck on their future paths.
