A Level Results 2018
Once again Hardenhuish is celebrating impressive A Level results with 55% of grades awarded at A*-B and 29% of grades at A and A*. Year 13 students have been rewarded for their hard work over the last two years with many students exceeding their personal targets and gaining places on courses at some of the most prestigious universities or moving on to industry-leading higher-level apprenticeships.
58 students (46% of cohort) achieved at least one A*/A grade with 21 students achieving at least 3 A*/A grades and 14 students gaining at least 4 A* /A grades. Students have made strong progress both in their A levels and the broader Sixth Form core curriculum programme of the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ), Level 3 Sports Leaders and Core Maths which has not only boosted students’ UCAS points but also enhanced valuable research, communication and numeracy skills.
These results are also a testament to the dedication, hard work and selflessness of staff who have done so much to support and prepare students for the new linear A level courses. Our 6th Form Team have provided unwavering support and guidance throughout, working effectively alongside the students providing invaluable information, advice and guidance, and look forward to celebrating with the students at our Year 13 Governors Awards ceremony in September.
Students have taken full advantage of the new study facilities opened last September and students, particularly members of the Student Leadership Team have been keen to leave a legacy for future Sixth Formers with fundraising for the development of the Sixth Form Courtyard and contributing to the design of the new café.
I am incredibly proud of the achievements of each and every student and am immensely grateful to the parents and carers who have supported both the school and the students through the challenges of their A level journey. On behalf of our whole community, I wish them all successful and happy futures.
Hardenhuish is delighted to be sharing the celebrations of Year 11 pupils today as they collect their GCSE results. The hard work, resilience and determination of every pupil has been rewarded with the best ever results for the school by some way with 79% of pupils achieving the 9-4 basics measure (grade 9-4 in English and Maths) and 76% achieving the historic measure of 5A*-C or 9-4 Grade including English and Maths. Over 28% of grades have been awarded at grades 9-7 with 25 pupils gaining at least 9 of the top 9-7 grades.
At a time when the national press is reporting how difficult it is to attain such excellent results, it is credit to the pupils, the teachers for their unwavering support and guidance, and the parents for their support and encouragement, that pupils have achieved so well. There are many individual success stories it is an absolute privilege to be able to share the celebrations of the pupils’ amazing results. They have worked so hard and contributed so much to Hardenhuish over the last five years that they deserve every success as they move on to the next stages of their education. The large majority of pupils will continue here in our Sixth Form where I look forward to celebrating their future successes and wish those well who will be continuing their studies elsewhere or beginning apprenticeships.
The Year 11 Team have been an amazing support throughout the 5 years and in particular leading up to and during their exams. Year 11 Learning Manager, Amy Webb, and Pastoral Manager, Lorraine Young, are proud of each and every one of the year group: “It is fantastic to see how the positive attitudes, hard work and determination have paid off. They thoroughly deserve the many successes they have achieved today.”
We wish them all the very best with their futures!
