Sponsors and Governors are pleased to announce a significant improvement in students’ results in A Level and Vocational courses for the 2016 examinations. With an A Level pass rate of 100% A*-E, and a Vocational pass rate of 100%, students have every reason to be proud. The average point score per student has also gone up significantly.
Although there were outstanding grades in many subjects, we are particularly pleased for students who studied BTECs in Sport as all students achieved top grades. Special mention must go to Jonathan Wyllie, who achieved an amazing triple Distinction* qualification in Sport.
We are delighted to announce that Chandler Russell is our highest achieving student attaining A*, A and B grades in Maths, Further Maths and Physics respectively and an A in his EPQ. Chandler collected his results and there were a few tense moments while he logged into his UCAS account to confirm that he will be embarking on a maths degree at Southampton. After receiving congratulations from Head of Maths, Jeff Bowes, Chandler rushed off to share the good news with his parents.
Business Studies student Laurna Haynes gained two Distinction grades at BTEC with a B and C grade at A level. Not only is Laurna the first member of her family to gain a university place but her grades mean that she has also gained a scholarship for her chosen course at University of Gloucestershire.
The Chair of Governors, David Fraser, said ‘We are really pleased with our results. So many of our students have worked hard to achieve these excellent grades, which means that more students than ever are leaving All Saints with an excellent preparation for the world of work and further study.”

During the Easter holidays, we took 10 AS Geographers to Nettlecombe Court Field studies centre in Somerset. Set in the beautiful open countryside, Nettlecombe is a stunning old manor house which now hosts GCSE and A-level Geography courses.
We spent a successful weekend completing fieldwork for our AS Unit 2 exam, examining the development of the Somerset coast as a tourist resort, the coastal management in place and comparing the rural deprivation of villages in the area. On the way home we stopped off at Stonehenge to see one of the Wonders of Britain.
The students were fantastic representatives of the Academy and demonstrated excellent leadership and team work skills throughout the weekend.
