GCSE Results – Academic Year 2016/17
Students and staff celebrated together this morning with the release of the GCSE results for this year.
Individual stories of excellence and effort were rewarded with high grades and perhaps best reflected in the statistic that 10 different subjects achieved a 100% A* - C grade pass rate. As a direct result of this success across our curriculum, there was a significant increase in the number of A and A* grades achieved and amongst the smiles and laughter of celebration, the students were already looking forward to the exciting challenges ahead in our Sixth Form.
Mrs Nancekievill commented “It has been fantastic to witness such success amongst our students this morning and to see all their hard work pay off. The results are a great credit to the students, parents and teachers working together, this collective endeavour epitomises our school ethos."
A Level Results – Academic Year 2016/2017
Year 13 students really excelled themselves this year achieving fantastic A Level and BTEC results.
With the new structure of exams, students knew it was going to be tough. For the third year running our results have improved and armed with superb teaching and support, hard work and sheer determination, students were able to exceed expectations and achieve the grades needed for the next stage in their lives.
Chloe Batchford, who has been a pupil at Farringtons since the age of three, is delighted to have achieved an incredible 3 A* and is now looking forward to attending Birmingham University to study Medicine.
Deputy Head Girl, Elysia Hackett, winner of this year’s national Armourers and Brasier TATA Sixth Form Materials Prize for her science research, achieved 1 A*/2 As, and will now pursue her passion for science and join Glasgow University to study Veterinary Science.
Head Girl, Amy Dedman is also thrilled with her results of 3 As and is looking forward to joining Birmingham University to study Banking and Finance.
Other outstanding results came from our overseas boarding students Su Cheng (1 A*/2 As) joining UCL, Edwin Hu (1 A*/2 As) joining Loughborough and Howard Liu (1 A/ 2 Bs) off to Durham University. Excellent results from students whose first language is not English.
Dorothy Nancekievill, Head, commented, ‘It has been an absolute pleasure to watch these students mature into young adults in the last two years. I am delighted with the superb results they have achieved. They are a real credit to Farringtons, their families and themselves’.
