Great results for students at Whitby Sixth Form
It’s been another very successful year for Whitby Sixth Form students.
Despite the disruption caused by lockdown, remote learning and the switch from exams to teacher assessments, they have achieved a great set of results and should be very proud of themselves. At A-level, the average grade that students achieved was a B, with an impressive 20% of students gaining 3 A*-B grades, whilst students taking vocational qualifications and Tech levels averaged the equally impressive standard of a Distinction.
This means that students from across the Whitby community are moving on to a wide range of destinations, including top universities and apprenticeships. We are celebrating the successful results of 3 students who have got the grades to go to either Oxford or Cambridge to study Medicine, Veterinary Science and Natural Sciences, which continues the strong track record of Whitby Sixth Form getting its students onto Oxbridge Science courses. We also have students who have been offered Anglo-American apprenticeships, as well as places on a whole range of other courses, including Physiotherapy, Nursing, Paramedic Practice, and Veterinary Nursing. Other top universities that our students are heading off to include Law at UCL, Liberal Arts at Leeds and Law at Bristol.
Both staff and governors want to congratulate all of our students on their hard work and well-deserved success, and wish them well as they move on to exciting new opportunities.
