KS5 Exam Results and Destinations

Exam success for W6

Students and staff at W6 Sixth Form at SRWA, a member of the Woodard Academies Trust, this year celebrated another great set of exam results.

A key strength for the Academy has always been our Performing Arts specialism. Once again, this subject area delivered results among the best in the country in Performing Arts, Production Arts, and Music, with 100% of students achieving an A/A* grade or equivalent.

Building on last year’s departmental successes, new highlights this year included 100% of students in History and Music achieving a grade of A*-C, along with 92% achieving the same in Sociology. English Literature and Mathematics continue the success of last year with 100% A*-C, representing an outstanding outcome for the subject and students. Across the board, 25% of students achieved an A* or A grade in academic and vocational courses, which is a testament to the hard work of our students.

The successes of previous years also continued in Health & Social Care with 100% of all students gaining the equivalent of an A*grade.

As ever, there were numerous examples of excellent individual performance. These achievements are a great source of pride for the Academy – as well as setting up the students concerned to be highly successful in their chosen further studies and future careers.

Individual A2 Highlights

Connie Franks Distinction* (Music), Distinction* x2  (Performing Arts)
Zac Lelean Distinction* (Music), Distinction* x2  (Performing Arts)
Megan Phillips Distinction* (Music), Distinction* x2  (Performing Arts)

These results have secured many of our students places at local and national universities. Alex Luff has secured a place at The University of Sussex, reading American Studies which will see him spend some of his time abroad in the United States. Other notable placements include Felix Barrett who will study Music at University of Chichester and Bryony Johnson will pursue Physiotherapy at London’s Brunel University.

Kieran Scanlon, SRWA’s Principal, commented that he was “delighted to be here with the students and teachers this morning to celebrate the fruits of all their hard work over the last two years. We wish all of our outgoing sixth form students every success for the future.”
