South Wirral Celebrates a 99% pass rate at ‘A’ Level

‘A’ Level students at South Wirral High School are celebrating 99% pass rate; a reflection of students and staff’s hard work and dedication.

Most students secured their first choice university by achieving A*, As and B grades, with a significant number destined for ‘redbrick’ (Russell Group) universities. Head Girl, Hannah Dobson will be studying Sport & Exercise Science BA (Hons)at the University of Leeds, Shaun Burr and Ryan Day will be studying Geography at The University of Liverpool. Lizzie Cook will embark on her Film Studies & English BA (Hons), as well as Ryan Ellison and Ami Whitford-Stark for BA (Hons) Philosophy. Another successful student, Connor Moss, will be studying Law with Philosophy, Jack Patterson for Law, Leah Reynolds for History and Caleb Salisbury for Business Management. A brilliant result and well-deserved.

Other students will go on to study Nursing, Accountancy, Psychology, Journalism, Education, Mechanical Engineering, Sports and Science, Dance, Cyber Security, Musical Theatre, and Acting.

Some students have also secured prestigious apprenticeships – a good alternative to university – in Quantity Surveying, Accounting & Engineering. One hard-working student, Cameron Arrowsmith, attended our Employability workshops with the Young Chamber and will study Engineering at Liverpool John Moores University, alongside a full-time apprenticeship at Markhams. South Wirral recognise the value in university education and apprenticeships, understanding that each student is individual.

“These results are the product of many months of hard work and dedication by the students and support from parents. I am especially pleased to note the wide range of apprenticeships, vocational and academic courses that students are moving on to. We are all proud of our achievements.”

What did our students say?
