A-level success for Ackworth Sixth Formers in face of adversity

by | Aug 13, 2020 | Senior School, Sixth Form

We are very proud of all of our Sixth Formers. With their chance to demonstrate their ability in the normal way removed as a consequence of the pandemic, their teachers were asked to provide Centre Assessed Grades that were a fair reflection of what they would have achieved in their A-Level examinations. They have done very well and their results are deserved. 

  • 36.7% of grades were A*-A
  • 61.7% A*-B,
  • 83.3% A*-C
  • 100% A*-E. 

Anton Maree, Head of Ackworth School said, “This was a year group required to deal with far more adversity than any other. They have responded admirably to this challenge in a way that defines them and we will all miss their spontaneity and humour whilst regretting their missed chances to shine during all the moments that accompany the final year at school.” 

Madison and Aidan celebrate their top results.

Ackworth is a small, non-selective school and we regularly send our students to the best universities in the country and further afield: Henry will be studying Modern Languages at Warwick University; Martha, Spanish at Oxford University; Madison, Medicine at Hull York Medical School; Dusan, Economics and Politics at the University of Edinburgh; Reece, Dentistry at Kings College London; and Mikkel, Economics and Finance at Wofford College, South Carolina, in the USA.

Alexandra Collingwood, Head of Sixth Form said, “We are delighted that our students will be moving into higher education at some extremely prestigious universities. They will do very well and were part of a cohort that we certainly won’t forget.’
