Congratulations to all our Year 13’s and their families who are receiving their results today.

Over the past three years we are delighted to have been ranked in the top 1% of schools nationally for student progress at Post 16 and are pleased that this pattern of outstanding performance has continued this year with another set of excellent results. We are incredibly proud of the efforts of all our students with headline figures for Year 13 including:

  • 100% A Level and Level 3 BTEC pass rate
  • 97% of students achieved at least one grade A*-B or equivalent
  • 76% of all entries were graded at A*-B or equivalent
  • 40% of all entries were graded at A*-A or equivalent

Miss De Lashley, Head of Sixth Form said “2018 has been another great year for our sixth form students. These results reflect hard work, commitment and a genuine desire to achieve their potential. We are delighted to have supported these young people in taking a step closer to their chosen future aspirations. The rigour of the reformed qualifications has been met with a determination to succeed. It is really pleasing to see that all of their hard work over the last two years has paid off and they have achieved excellent grades and made great progress. We are absolutely thrilled for them and we are grateful for all of their contributions to the school and local community. They have embodied the school’s values throughout their time with us and have been excellent role models. We wish all of our students the very best of luck in the future and look forward to hearing about all of their successes to come.”

Headteacher, Andrew Daly, said: “Archbishop Holgate’s School is once again celebrating excellent results both in terms of achievement and progress. This is especially pleasing in light of the fact that the reform of both A Level and Vocational subjects means that the academic demands of these subjects are greater than ever.  These results are outstanding, with a 100% pass rate, 97% of students achieving at least one grade A*- B or equivalent, 76% of entries graded at A*- B or equivalent and 40% of students achieving A*- A or equivalent. This means that the vast majority of students have secured places at their first choice university. We are very pleased to see that the commitment and hard work of our students has been rewarded with another set of excellent results, and we are incredibly proud of all our students and wish them all the very best for their futures.”

Mr Daly added: “With a clear and consistent track record of outstanding results, a broad curriculum and outstanding teaching, Archbishop Holgate’s Sixth Form has once again demonstrated that it is an outstanding provider of Post 16 education – both locally and nationally.”
