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.”

I am extremely proud of all of our students who have worked diligently to ensure they get the best results possible. As an Academy we have had a sharp focus on improving exam technique and have used timely interventions which have had a measurable impact on our outcomes. These results clearly show that All Saints is on a journey to becoming an outstanding academy and I am confident these are just the first steps!’
Chair of Governors, David Fraser, added: ‘Liz Furber has quite rightly highlighted the achievement and hard work of our students. I want to pay tribute to the significant progress and success that she, and her team, has achieved since last November when they assumed the helm at All Saints. The Academy is in a strong place due to the effort that has been put in over the past 10 months.’
