We are extremely proud of this year’s Sixth Form @ South Wirral Year 13 cohort, who have had to endure the challenges of the last 18 months as students studying A Levels and vocational equivalents. It is a testament to their hard work, resilience and superb attitude that we celebrate their successes today – and this year the school sees the continued improvement in student outcomes despite all obstacles. We are proud of the high level of challenge and rigour that has gone into student assessments to ensure that students have got the results that accurately reflect their ability and allow them to go onto the destinations they have aspired to.
All students applying to University through UCAS have secured their first choice destination as a result of achieving high grades, achieving conditional offers in a range of courses.
William Dixon (A – English Literature, A – Film Studies, B – Product Design) who is going on to study English Literature at Liverpool University
Charley Foley (Distinction – Business Studies, B – Psychology, C – Law) who will study Criminology and Psychology at Liverpool John Moores University.
Kyle Jones (A – English Literature, A – Film Studies, B – History) who has accepted an offer from Newcastle University to study English Literature.
Lewis Jones (A* – Product Design, A – Mathematics, B – Physics) who is going on to study Architecture at Liverpool University
Megan Prior (Distinction* – Business, A – Music, B – History) who is taking a gap year to gain employment experience before going on to study at University in a year’s time.
Sophie Van Dieren (A – History, A – Music, A – Biology) who is also intending to take a gap year before going on to study at University next year.
A number of students have opted to study a wide variety of courses at University including Law, Primary Education, Children’s Nursing, Football Business and Finance, Engineering and Business Finance.
This reflects the school’s drive to provide a rich curriculum for all students that allows them to realise their potential in their passions.
Simon Goodwin, Headteacher, said:
“In a challenging year for students, having my own two daughters going through the process of studying in year 13 has helped me understand the real challenge that all students have had to overcome in this academic year. We are all immensely proud of our students’ achievements and believe that the success they have achieved is genuine and not diluted by the current situation. We wish them every success in the future. These results are the product of many years of hard work and dedication by the students and support from parents.”
As always, many of the real success stories are where students have exceeded all expectations through sustained hard work and excellent teaching. We would like to thank and congratulate everyone involved in enabling our students to achieve their potential.
