Eckington Sixth Formers celebrate A-level results
Students at Eckington Sixth Form celebrated today as they opened their A-level and Level 3 exam results. The school’s results show significant improvement to the last comparable results of 2019.
This year sees a return to pre-pandemic grading nationwide, meaning that grades in 2023 are comparable with those issued in 2019. Eckington’s average grades, point scores, and percentage of grades between A*-C are all improved on those achieved in 2019.
Highlights across Eckington Sixth Form’s class of 2023 include a 100% A-level pass rate. 67.4% of all results achieved grades between A*-C. 10.4% of the grades awarded were A* or A.
This year’s Year 13 students – for whom this was the first experience of external exams, following the cancellation of their GCSE exams in 2021 – should be particularly proud of their results, which are testament to their resilience and hard work.
Eckington students now head off to a wide range of destinations across the country including universities from Leeds and Sheffield to Manchester and Lincoln. They will be studying subjects such as maths and physics, psychology, quantity surveying, modern languages, screen writing, primary education and architectural engineering.
Headteacher, Richard Cronin, said: “I am enormously proud of our Year 13 students. The excellent results of these young people demonstrate that education really does offer a passport to the future, as they now go on to access a wide variety of future education and career paths.
“We will miss this group of students, who have had such a positive impact on the school, but their hard work and determination will serve as inspiration to future generations of Eckington Sixth Formers. We wish them the very best of luck in their chosen next steps and look forward to hearing of their successes in the future.”
