William Brookes School students celebrate excellent A Level exam results

Sixth Form students at William Brookes School have seen their hard work rewarded in an impressive set of A level exam results with 24% at A*/A grades, 44% at A*-B and an overall pass rate of 97%.

Head of William Brookes School, Geoff Renwick commented:

“In a year when the course structure has changed so dramatically to a full two year course without the half-way check of AS levels, it is really pleasing that our students have achieved such excellent A Level grades, particularly at the top end.

Supported by our expert teachers, they have worked extremely hard over the past two years of Sixth Form and contributed significantly to life at the school. We are extremely proud of their success and wish them well in the next stage of their lives, and look forward to welcoming our new intake of Sixth Formers from schools across Shropshire in just a few weeks’ time.”

Chair of Governors, Catherine Connery added:

“We are absolutely delighted with such superb A level results, which are testament to the hard work of our students and the support and expert teaching of our dedicated teachers. This confirms the position of William Brookes School Sixth Form as one of Shropshire’s top schools for A level study, and these excellent results are sure to inspire younger students coming through the school.”

Amongst the many exceptional individual performances, two William Brookes School students – Tom Grant and Harry Dowdeswell swept the board with 3 A* grades. Isaac James achieved 2 A*s and 1 A and four students – Tula McKinnon-Wood, Helen Godfrey, Robbie Cooper and Nimi Day Gough - were each awarded 1 A* and 2 A grades. Her excellent grades have been more than enough to secure Nimi her place at Oxford University to read English Language and Literature. Adam Goodman achieved 1 A* and 3 A grades, whilst Lucy Harper was awarded 3 straight As.
