We are once again very pleased with so many students achieving excellent grades at Wollaston at the culmination of their Sixth Form studies. Despite this being the first set of formal examinations taken by this cohort of students the results they have achieved reflect their ability and work ethic, with the percentage of A*-A grades actually increasing from the pre-pandemic 2019 figure.  This success with the highest grades was replicated in vocational subject results where 73% of students achieved either Distinction * or Distinction grades.

As a result of this there were many happy faces in the school this morning with students celebrating successfully progressing onto their next steps, whether that is at university, in employment or moving onto higher level apprenticeships.  There were some excellent individual performances:

Ethan Jennings’ grades were superb, achieving 4 A*s in Maths, Further Maths, Physics and Chemistry.  Similarly, D’Arcy Coffey’s ability and determination was rewarded with 4 A grades, he will be studying Physics at university. Tilly Reeves’ four grades were of a very high standard with her achieving Double Distinction* AB.  Rory Traynor achieved A*A*A and is now moving on to study musical theatre at the Guildford School of Acting.  Tom Lambeth’s A* and 2 A grades will means that he will be moving on the study biomedical science at university.  Maddie Nakash will be reading classics at university following on from her AAA grades, as well as an A* in her Extended project. Ryder Haldane also achieved AAA and will now be studying neuroscience.   Brandon Clissit and Lewis Cole were both rewarded for their consistent high level of work with three Distinction grades.

Tony Mills, Head of Sixth Form was very pleased with the results stating “It has been wonderful to see so many students so excited about their grades this morning, and to hear about their success with securing their ongoing destinations.  At Wollaston we focus on the individual aims of each student and we are very proud to know they are moving onto study a range of subjects including pharmaceutical science, law and photography; whilst others are now progressing into careers including both the police force and fire service.”

Simon Anderson commented “we are delighted with results and are incredibly proud of our students and staff, and it is really testament to their hard work over the last two years. We wish all of our Year 13s every success in their future endeavours!”.
