A-LEVEL RESULTS: Departed principal Tim Hitch praises Neale-Wade’s students

DEPARTED principal Tim Hitch has praised Neale-Wade Community College’s students this morning after they received their A-Level results.

In a parting gift to Mr Hitch - who had been in charge at the March school for almost five years - every student was successful in passing A-Level examinations.

The out-going principal, who will be replaced by Jason Wing in September, said: “I am pleased with the students’ results this year.

“I would like to congratulate all students, but especially: Rachel Roe (Mathematics A*, Biology A, Chemistry A and Further Mathematics A); Sarah Bannister (Chemistry A, Mathematics A and Biology B); Ben Crowther (Product design A, Geography A and History B).

“Thomas Searle (History A*, English language and literature A and government and politics B); Rebecca Jackson (Product design A, English language and literature B, Psychology B and Biology C) for their success at A-Level.

“With 12 subjects gaining 100 per cent pass rates and a number of very pleasing individual performances, the hard work of the students and staff is clear.”

Natalie Lamb, head of the school’s post-16 department and Jenny Nickalls, chair of governors, also praised students’ achievements.

More than 50 per cent of A-Level examinations were passed with higher grades. Twenty per cent of students achieved an A grade - with two attaining an A* grade.
