News - Outstanding sixth form results

Thursday 15 August 2019

Sixth form students at Bennett Memorial Diocesan School are again celebrating along with their teachers their magnificent A level results, with many students achieving outstanding grades and going on to some of the most sought after university courses.


In the large and inclusive sixth form of this outstanding Church of England school, 153 students took A Levels this year, achieving results that are amongst the strongest in the school’s history.  Another superb pass rate was achieved, with 99% of all examinations passed.  52% of all A Levels taken were passed with grades A*- B, and 79% were passed with grades A* to C.  Value added is once again strongly positive, indicating that in the Bennett sixth form students make exceptional progress from GCSE to A Level. Of paramount importance perhaps, is that most students have secured places at universities of their choice, including some of the most prestigious in the country.


Headteacher Jon Sparke said: “Bennett has at its core the belief that every single student can succeed through great teaching and hard work, this is what provides the foundation for the superb results achieved by our students and the progress that this represents.  We are immensely proud of the achievements of all our students.  There are excellent outcomes right across the board, for which students have worked extremely hard. I would like to offer students warmest congratulations and, on their behalf, thank all their teachers for their contribution to making these results possible.”


There were many examples of outstanding individual performances.  These include amongst many others:

Mr Sparke continued: “Alongside these, and all other students with A* and A  grades, there are of course many other excellent sets of results, including many which represent impressive achievements for the students concerned. These results mean that progress in the Bennett Sixth Form will once again be among the strongest nationally. These results demonstrate that we continue to build upon our well established record of success across the whole range of subjects, academic and creative, arts, and particularly sciences and mathematics; achievement in our two technical diploma courses was once again superb. We wish all our Bennett students completing their sixth form this year every success for the next stage of their education.”
