Exam Results

2018 marked another set of fantastic A-Level results for the sixth form with 80% of students gaining a strong pass (A*-C), more than half of the students gained A*-B (57%) and more than one in four students gaining A* – A grades (27)%.  These results outperformed the previous years and have been consistently high over the last four years. Comparison with national statistics shows that the sixth form adds significant value-added performance at both AS and A Level.  In 2018 the independent data management company ‘Alps’ which analyses data across hundreds of schools and colleges nationally identified Arnewood Sixth Form as being in the top 25% for progress at A-level. This is a testimony to the great efforts of our students and teachers who clearly work as an effective partnership.  Can we also take this opportunity to thank our parent and carers for their continued support.
