Hard work by Neale Wade sixth formers result in A-level 94 per cent pass rate
SIXTH form students at the Neale Wade Community College in March have been celebrating, after recording impressive A-level passes across the board.
Principal Jason Wing was delighted, and said: “The results reflected what can be achieved when our students are focused, aspirational, and work hard in conjunction with their teachers. “
Fifty-two per cent of all students achieved at the higher A-C grades, and the overall pass rate for all students was 94.% .
In ten subject areas, students achieved 100% pass rates, and three students achieved A* grades, placing them in the top 10% of all students across the country. Mr Wing added: “I am particularly impressed with mathematics, where 2.6% of students gained the impressive A* grade along with 37% gaining A grades.”
Natalie Lamb, head of Post-16, said: “Many of our students have worked exceptionally hard over the last two years. Their successes have gained them places at universities across the country, including University College London, Leicester and Plymouth. Many others have already gained full time employment. I would like to wish all of our College leavers every success in the future.”
