QE Students achieve wonderful set of results
Students and staff at Queen Elizabeth's School, Crediton are celebrating a great set of A Level results today. Across the broad range of subjects that are taught in the Sixth Form:
- 27% of entries were awarded an A* or A grade
- 51% of entries were awarded at the A*-B grades
- 79% of entries gained a C grade or above
Paula Smith, Headteacher at QE, said; “Huge congratulations to all our Sixth Formers who have received their A Level results today. Yet again, despite the difficulties of recent years, our students have achieved a wonderful set of results that will give them a strong foundation for their next steps in higher education or employment. It was a joy to see so many receiving well deserved excellent results and we are so proud of the amazing young people they have become. QE Sixth Form is a very special community where students support each other and we have expert teachers who really know and understand them. It has been a joint effort on the part of students, their families, teachers and the Sixth Form team - thank you to everyone who has contributed to the success of our students during the seven years that they have been with us".
Head of Sixth Form, Vicky Evans said “We are very pleased that the vast majority of our students achieved a brilliant set of results, gaining their first choice places at University. Students have been successful in reaching their goals and will be attending institutions across the country, from Cambridge to Cardiff and York to Plymouth, with a number choosing to stay in the area and study at Exeter. Students will be studying a range of courses including law, biomedicine, natural and environmental sciences, musical theatre, sport, photojournalism, English, sociology, drama and many more. A growing number of students will be moving into apprenticeships this year including degree apprenticeships in construction which are proving to be highly competitive.
“This success is all the result of the dedicated hard work and commitment that our students have given to their studies along with our highly experienced teachers who have expertly guided all students to achieve their next steps."
The rigours of A Level courses and changes to grading at a national level can mean that some students don’t achieve as well as they might have hoped. We are very keen to support any student that needs help with the university clearing process and they must not hesitate to get in touch with Vicky Evans over the coming days and weeks if they need to.
We are looking forward to welcoming our new Year 12s into the 6th Form in September and enrolment will be open on GCSE results day, Thursday 24th August, 9am - 12pm, and Monday 4th September, 1:15pm - 3pm.
