Examination Results

All students in Years 10 and 11 follow courses leading to public examinations for the General Certificate of Secondary Education (GCSE) and a range of other courses. Most students take examinations in nine subjects. Sixth Form students usually study either 3 or 4 subjects at A Level or BTEC.

The school is always pleased to discuss results overall or in any specific area(s). Enquiries should be addressed in the first instance to Mr Anderson, Headteacher.

A Level Results 2023

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 Performing Arts at one of the country’s most prestigious centres. 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.”

After preparing for and completing their GCSE examinations in the post-COVID era, the students at Wollaston have shown their resilience and determination by securing some very pleasing results in their GCSE and vocational qualifications.

 

Mr Smyth, Head of Year 11 said: “I’m really very pleased with the level of effort that our students put in this year. I was blown away with how dedicated the students were to their studies and I was extremely impressed with the focus and maturity they showed in the months and weeks leading up to their exams. The hard work has truly paid off! I know they will continue to shine in their next destinations from September. I wish them all the very best of luck!”

 

Mr Anderson, Wollaston’s Head of School commented: “we’re delighted with the results that our Year 11 cohort has achieved this year and are extremely proud of them.
