We are delighted to announce exceptional results from the founding year group of St Thomas the Apostle 6th form students.
These results are a testament to hard work and close collaboration between staff, students and parents alike and see our students heading off to prestigious universities across the country and abroad. These results follow the TES 'National Secondary School of the Year' award for 2017 presented earlier this year. The high expectations, rigorous support and 'no excuses' culture have been paramount to this success.
Particular highlights include:
- 32% of all A Level Grades at A* - A
- 54% of all A Level Grades at A* - B
- 30% of students achieved grades of AAB including 2 facilitating subjects
Emmanuele Guidi took a staggering 7 A Levels achieving 2 A*s, 3 A's and 2 B's. He now leaves us to embark on a scholarship at the University of Chicago.
Emmauel Adepoju achieved A*'s in Maths and Further Maths and an A in Physics - he will be studying Mechanical Engineering at University.
Lydia Kadiri's AAB grades mean she will be going to Nottingham University to study Medical Physiology and Therapeutics.
We wish the whole cohort well as they go on to study degrees in Chemical Engineering, Law, Economics, Pharmacy, PPE and Mathematics amongst many others.
Headteacher Eamon Connolly commented, "I am delighted for each and every one of our students for these excellent results; both those who have been with us since age 11 and those who joined our new sixth form in 2015. I am proud of their achievements and feel confident we have prepared them both academically and personally, to enter adulthood and embark on their chosen degrees as fine young men and women".
