A Level Exam Results 2017


2016/17 Performance by Average Grade 

Once again students at Malbank School and Sixth Form College were celebrating results which opened doors for them to go to some of the country's best universities or allowed them to secure exciting apprenticeships. With a quarter of all A Level grades at A or A*, there were lots of smiling students.

High flying students included Gemma Atkins and Eleanor Austin who gained A*, A, A and Molly Ann Jones who also got A*, A and a B. Amy Tomlinson got two A*'s, a B and an A* in an EPQ and will study at Cambridge. Headteacher Jeannette Walker said, "It's great to see academic high fliers excel and progress to prestigious universities but it's equally rewarding to see students of all abilities doing well. In our Sports Academy students performed very well with nearly 70% of all grades equivalent to A* or A. Similarly, on our vocational courses in general 88% or all grades were equivalent to A* to B grades."

John Harrison, Director of Sixth Form said, "We are particularly pleased that even though some subjects were being assessed under the new more challenging syllabi, 28 out of 31 courses achieved a 100% pass rate indicating success across the curriculum. We were particularly delighted with the Psychology results, where 73% of students achieved an A or A* with nearly all students bettering their targets."

Students going to university have selected from a wide range of courses including Law, English Literature, Geography, Performing Arts, Human Nutrition, Psychology, Business Management, Fashion, Graphics, Food, Drama, Marketing, Accounting and Nursing.

Chair of Governors, Scott Harding said, "It's great to see our students have been inspired by teaching across the curriculum and we hope that they will go on and continue to make us as proud of them as we are today. I'd like to congratulate them and thank the staff for their hard work and commitment to our students."

Key Stage 5 Results 2016/17

Due to the way A level performance is calculated (with pupil performance being judged against other students in the country) it is not possible to accurately confirm school performance until it has been compared to all other schools nationally.

As such, the Progress data for Sixth Form will be published after nationally recognised data analysis is sent to the schools later in 2017.
