Sixth Form students at St. Michael’s School have been celebrating their excellent A Level results. As always, the School’s performance has exceeded national averages, with 80% of grades awarded being A*-B. 25% of all grades awarded were A*, and a further 30% were A grades. Overall the A Level pass rate was 99%.
Headteacher Alun Millington was quick to praise the students for their fantastic achievements, saying
“The superb performance of our Sixth Formers is testament not only to their ability and skills, but also to their commitment and dedication to study.”
Mr Millington also commented that,
“As Headteacher, I am delighted to see so many of our young people thriving and maximising their potential, and this must also reflect the quality of teaching and our commitment to maintaining small class sizes and a purposeful learning environment”.
The School is proud of all its students but of particular note is the success of our highest performing students. In all, eighteen students achieved A* or A grades in all their subjects. These include local students Philippe Rodgers, who achieved 5 A* grades, and Charlotte Ramsey, who attained 3 A*s and 2 As. International students, such as Ugonna Onwuchekwa, were also well represented in the highest achievers. Ugonna’s 4 A* grades mean that he will be able to fulfill his ambition of studying Medicine next year. In all, 12 students have gained places for Medicine.
Mr Millington is confident that St. Michael’s is facing a bright future.
“With education in a seemingly perpetual cycle of change, I believe our emphasis on a traditional curriculum, free from limitations such as the Welsh Baccalaureate, will continue to give best value to our students.”
