Headlines from a great year at Huntington:
A* – A rate: 37% NEW RECORD
A*- B rate: 68% NEW RECORD
A*-E rate: 100% NEW RECORD
Comments from John Tomsett, Headteacher
“I am overwhelmed by these record results. The fact that 37% of all entries are at A*/A is remarkable. And our A*/B rate is 11% higher than we have ever seen before at Huntington. The fact that not one entry was awarded a grade U is also unprecedented at Huntington. For an open access sixth form like ours, the high academic achievement is tremendous.
“Considering the increased academic challenge of the new A level exams, these excellent results are doubly pleasing. Our students have secured their university places, their apprenticeships and their employment choices and that is, arguably, the ultimate goal of sixth form study.
“We have students off to Oxford, Durham, St Andrew’s and even Yale in the USA to study the widest range of subjects imaginable, from Astrophysics at UCL to German & Italian at Oxford!
“On behalf of our students, I would like to thank all my colleagues who have worked hard to ensure that our students have been able to tackle the new exams with confidence.
“But beyond the exam results, Huntington is a school where our students venture into the world with confidence. Their personal skills and aptitudes allow them to thrive in all circumstances, and that is important in the competitive world we live in.”
Comments from Chris Hardwell, Director of Sixth Form
“These outstanding results are a testament to the two years of dedication and hard work of our students. It was great to see so many smiling faces as they picked up their results.
“At a time when young people are under intense scrutiny and pressure our students are achieving at an exceptional level. This is down to the hard work of our students, the high standard of teaching and the excellent relationships between staff and students.”
