A-Level Results 2016-2017

Press Release

PRINCIPAL: MR JOHN McPARLAND BD PGCE MA NPQH

Post 16 A Level, AS Level and BTEC Level 3 Examination results - 17th August 2017

The Principal, John McParland, is very pleased with the overall achievement of his students who sat their A Level, AS Level and Vocational examinations this summer.  He commented “in our comprehensive Academy we enter students of all abilities for a wide variety of subjects Post 16 and with our expanding Sixth Form we see the marked progress our students are making each year. The percentage of students achieving A* - E grades in Facilitating Subjects of English, Mathematics, Science, Languages, History and Geography is 100%; the percentage of students achieving 3, 2 or 1 A* - E grades in Year 13 for all subjects has risen by 10%, 24% and 18% respectively; the percentage of students achieving 3, 2 or 1 A* - E grades in A Level subjects has risen by 8%, 19% and 8% respectively.  This year our students still sat AS examinations to enable them to have a breadth to their curriculum and the number of entries has risen from 90 to 125 students with a 4% rise in A and B grades.”

Mr McParland also emphasised that this year it is important to note that students faced the biggest exam shake up in a generation resulting in harder qualifications being phased in over three years with students being assessed almost entirely on end of course exams, not coursework or AS Levels, and some courses introduced this year were unable to provide past papers or mark schemes. In this first year of these new exams, students, schools and universities had no idea what grades students would obtain.

At The John Wallis Academy there were some very good individual successes at A Level; Abby Woods achieved a B grade in Geography, a B grade in Photography, a C grade in English Literature and a C grade in AS Religious Studies; Deputy Head Girl, Carmen McLean achieved a B grade in English Literature, a B grade in Geography and a C grade in Psychology; Head Girl, Paige Songhurst achieved a B grade in Sociology, a C grade in Geography and a C grade in Psychology. At AS Level Benjamin Ikiseh, next year’s Head Boy, achieved an A grade in Geography, B grades in Biology and Chemistry and a D grade in Physics;  Chloe Brown achieved a B grade in French, Mathematics, Psychology and a C grade in English Literature.

The following students studied a combination of A Levels and BTEC Level 3 courses: Miriyan Chhantyal, who will study Architecture at university, sat 3 A Levels and 2 Level 3 BTECs (equivalent to 5 A Levels) achieved 175 points (average grade of B-); Nidesh Musuhang achieved 170 points (average grade of B-) Hangsa Limbu achieved 160 points (average grade B).

Mr McParland went on to say “I am very proud of all our students and how they have adapted to the challenges and changes in this year’s examinations. I want our students to receive the praise they deserve for their hard work and to thank our teachers for enabling our students to achieve the best results possible. I wish our students every success and happiness in the next phase of their education and career choice.”
