Results day at Aquinas College saw the release of a fantastic set of results for our students. Principal, Danny Pearson said:
“I am thrilled with the overall results this year and that the dedication of all the staff and hard work of students has been rewarded with an outstanding set of outcomes. We realise that there has been heightened anxiety this year and are really pleased that the students have done so well.
The commitment, determination and resilience that students have displayed together with the tremendous effort of the staff over the last two years has been justly rewarded. I know how tough it has been, so I hope everyone takes great pride in these results.
Initial analysis shows a pass rate of 99% for A Levels with 360 A*s; A*-B high grades at 70%, 20% higher than 2019 (the last time students sat exams) and A*-C of 88%. Incredible results after such a difficult period. The vocational courses are looking equally as good and every bit as strong as the A levels bearing in mind the recent changes.
We have been surrounded by happy confident students this morning who are thrilled with their results. Currently 83% students have secured a University place and can start to look forward to their next exciting steps in life.
The commitment and care that staff show our students has remained outstanding over the past few difficult years and I have no doubt that these results reflect this approach. Congratulations and well done to all the Aquinas staff and students of 2022.”
