Buxton Community School ‘extremely proud’ of sixth form students over A-levels
Buxton Community School say the ‘vast majority’ of students have accepted offers from universities and colleges following the release of A-level results on Thursday.
A spokesperson told how teens at the school would also be taking up apprenticeships and ‘other exciting opportunities’.
Schools across the country have reacted with outrage after exams watchdog Ofqual downgraded teachers’ grade predictions - leaving many with poorer results than expected.
However, speaking about results day the Buxton Community School spokesperson said: “It was very much about next steps and future destinations and included some stunning results.
“Our students are thrilled to be starting a number of diverse and exciting courses including film production, business analytics, English, events management, mental health nursing, policing, midwifery and marine biology.
“Future University destinations for BCS sixth formers include Oxford, Bath, Cardiff, Loughborough, Durham, Glasgow, Nottingham and more.”
Giving examples of student grades she told how one named Connie had come away with A*,A,A and was going on to read History at Oxford.
Luke, who achieved A*,A*,A*, gained a place on the University of Warwick's ‘four-dimensional’ mathematics, operational research, statistics and economics degree.
While Elliot - with A*,A*,B - will be going to Bath, studying maths.
She added: “We are extremely proud of our sixth form students who have worked hard for so long.
“They have coped brilliantly with the uncertainty of the last few months and have dealt with the whole situation with a maturity and positivity that does them credit.”
