We said that 2020 and 2021 were exam years like no other but 2022 has offered continued challenges for this Year 13 cohort, with lockdowns, periods of self isolation and online learning adding additional pressure to an already challenging experience. The students of Hayesbrook Academy Sixth Form have been outstanding and impressed with their mature attitude and application to their studies. The grades achieved represent months of hard work and showcase the talent that we have in such a broad range of subjects.
Level 3 outcomes for A level, Applied and Technical qualifications resulted in an average grade of a C- overall with 11% of pupils included in the A*-B category. 31 pupils (86% of all students) sat either an Applied General and/or Technical qualification resulting in a distinction-/distinction average grade. This has led to a positive value added score of 0.18 for Applied General qualifications. We are thrilled with each student’s individual performance, and have thoroughly enjoyed today’s celebrations with students and parents in school.
We are also delighted that 100% of UCAS applicants achieved places and that many more now have confirmed placements with companies to complete apprenticeships. These Hayesbrook Academy Alumni will serve as an important reminder to the students in the years below as to what can be achieved even in a time of tremendous challenge, they have shown resilience and fortitude which will ensure continued future success.
