A Level results 2017

The Sir Robert Woodard Academy celebrating A level successes:

Students and staff at W6 Sixth Form at SRWA, a member of the Woodard Academies Trust, are today celebrating 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.

The Academy offers a broad selection of subjects ranging from academic A-levels to a variety of equivalent qualifications. 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.  They provide a strong foundation for further success for W6 Sixth Form students yet to come!

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”.
