Year 13 students at The Charter School are today celebrating their best ever A level and BTEC results.
74% of students achieved at least one A grade or equivalent and 25% achieved all A grades or higher. It is expected that the vast majority of students will progress to their first choice of university or college for further study, including students heading to Oxford and Cambridge.
46% of all A level grades achieved at The Charter School this year were A*/A, and almost three quarters (73%) were A*- B (67% in 2016). 100% of BTEC grades achieved were Distinction*/Distinction and 50% of all students gained at least 3 A levels with A* to B grades (up from 41% in 2016)
Head teacher, Christian Hicks, said today, “These are absolutely outstanding A level and BTEC results and are down to the perseverance and focus on excellence shown by all of our students and their teachers. The results are especially pleasing given the fact that many of the subjects have had to teach a brand new curriculum over the past two years following the government’s exam reforms”.
