Great success at St Bede’s Sixth Form

Thursday 18 August 2022

I am thrilled with the success achieved by our sixth form students in this summer’s A level and Cambridge Technical awards. Each and every one of them should be proud of their achievements especially as the last two years have brought so much disruption and many challenges to their education. The excellent results achieved this summer are the final product of so much hard work and determination shown by St Bede’s sixth form students.  

Almost 70% of students achieved grades A*-B with well over 36% of results being either an A* or A grade. I am delighted that over 50 grades achieved by our students were A* and I am extremely pleased to learn that so many of our sixth form students have got into their first choice university with at least three Oxbridge places being secured. Daniel Mills goes on to study Anglo-Saxon, Norse and Celtic at Cambridge; while Ethan Grant (mathematics and statistics) and Lottie Roessler (medicine) go on to study at Oxford. 

I would also like to specifically congratulate those students who achieved some of the highest grades in the cohort as we had 25 sixth formers who achieved either an A* or A  grade in every subject studied. This is a fantastic achievement for these individual students.  

For any student who needs support or further guidance with their next steps including UCAS offers then Mrs Tottey, Mrs Woodroofe and our examinations team are on hand. The St Bede’s Sixth Form team and I are very proud of the achievements of our students and I am incredibly grateful to all the teaching staff who supported this great bunch of students over the last two years to help obtain these fantastic results. The Sixth Form at St Bede’s continues to grow from strength to strength and these outstanding results are a reflection of the fantastic students that we have here. 

We look forward to celebrating the successes of our Year 13 students formally in December; until then we wish them the very best whether that be going to university or taking up an apprenticeship or employment.
