St George's Academy A Level Pass Rate Soars to 99%
St George’s Academy students and staff are celebrating their best ever post 16 performance with 99% of A level entrants and 100% of those taking vocational courses securing a pass grade. The percentage of students achieving the highest A level grades of A* - B also improved on last year to 35%. Over 70% of students studying vocational courses achieved Distinction or Distinction * for the second year in a row.
Academy Principal, Wayne Birks said “These are superb results and I would like to pass on my congratulations to Year 13 students and my colleagues in securing these record breaking scores. The improvement in the overall A level pass rate to a stunning 99% combined with yet another rise in the number of grades awarded at A *- B and a 100% pass rate in our vocational courses shows the effectiveness of teaching and support at St George’s Academy and the determination, commitment and aspirations of our students. Standards of achievement at A level have improved consistently in recent years and these latest scores in vocational and traditional academic subjects allow access to top universities and provide a great incentive to our younger students as they prepare to enter the sixth form. These results are also a major achievement for the Sleaford Joint Sixth Form and confirms the high quality post 16 provision available to students in the Sleaford area.”
