A level and BTEC results at Wyedean School Sixth form 2022

We are absolutely delighted with the exceptional performance of year 13 students at Wyedean Sixth form. Given that this cohort did not sit externally assessed exams in year 11 we are so very proud of how well they have fared in their formal exams. The resilience and determination demonstrated by all students across the UK is to be much admired this summer.
This year we have returned to the exam assessment system which we have always known would be a ‘transition year’ between 2021 (when assessment was done directly by schools and colleges) and 2019 (the last year exams took place). Repeatedly this year group has ridden the COVID wave deftly and this is evident in exam results which have returned 34% of grades at an A*-A and 65% of grades at an A* - B.
Johnathan Lane, Director of Sixth form reported that “Our results this year are outstanding. For a third of our students to achieve an A* or A is a remarkable achievement, especially in such difficult circumstances. It really has been a team effort: students, teachers, support staff and parents have worked together brilliantly to produce a set of results that we can all be proud of. The students can move on to the next stage of their journey with their heads held high.”  
Principal, Gwennan Jeremiah said, “The last few years have been challenging for all in education and we are delighted to have returned to a more normal exam experience for our students. Despite many students in year 13 not having sat any form of external assessment previously, each and every one of them rose to the challenge. Their exceptional results are well deserved, and we could not be more proud.
I would also like to thank our staff at Wyedean School and Sixth form centre for their determination to ensure that this group of students received high quality, interactive lessons, and excellent pastoral care whether it be remotely due to pandemic restrictions or in person. Their endeavours ensured that students were able to fully experience A level and BTEC learning at its best, pandemic or not.“  
Notable successes are: 
Joseph Thompson A*, A*, A*, B (Maths, Physics, Computer Science and Economics) 
William Coleman A*, A, A (Maths, Physics and DT)
Isaac Smith A*, A*, A, A (Further Maths, Maths, Chemistry, Physics)
Alesha Kirton C, C, B (Biology, Business and Psychology)
Anna Hardy A, A, A (Maths, Chemistry, Geography)
Grace Cronje A*, A*, A* (Maths, Biology, Chemistry)

2021 Wyedean A-level and BTEC students continue to excel.

 We are delighted to report that our wonderful students studying A-level and BTECs have once again weathered the pandemic storm and achieved excellent results.

 47% of students achieved an A* or an A, our best ever outcome. The A*- B figure was 81%, while the A*-C score was 94%. There was a 100% pass rate for both A-level and BTEC.

 Johnathan Lane, Director of Sixth form reported “The year has been challenging for so many reasons but the most significant obstacle for the students to battle through has been uncertainty – not knowing the nature of assessments they’d face or how grades would be generated. This Year 13 cohort has coped amazingly well with adversity and have excelled. They finish this academic year taking with them new reserves of resilience, independence, determination, and now fantastic grades, which will give them a great platform for the future.”

 Due to the pandemic, the standard exams process was not possible in 2021. However, forward planning and the extensive work of teachers and support staff at Wyedean has ensured that grades have been determined in a fair and considered manner. The quality assurance process has been robust and therefore students at Wyedean can be confident that their grades have parity alongside previous cohorts.  

 Notable successes are: Alex Candow: D*D*, Joe Dare: A*A*A, Corentine Dumond: A*A* A*A*A, Niall Hayes: A* A* A*, Adele Launay: A* A* A* A*, Caitlin McCullagh: D* A* A* A*, Finn  McNeil: D*D*AB, Meg Narayan: A*A*B,  Jess Pitt: D*AA, Bethany Rodgers: A* A*D*D and Tom Stenson: A* A*AB.

 Principal, Gwennan Jeremiah said, “I would like to publicly commend our students on their excellent performance at A level and BTEC. They have demonstrated extraordinary resilience and stepped up time and again to ensure that, pandemic or not, they can and will achieve their potential. We could not be prouder of them all.”

 

We're pleased to report that all of our students have gone on to appropriate destinations whether it be employment, apprenticeships, university, or in one case, starting a business! The most popular degree course our students chose to pursue was Art, and we had a whole range of other courses selected, including Midwifery, Law, Engineering, Journalism and Economics. Our students have headed all over the country from Durham to Southampton; Edinburgh to Cambridge. Wherever they go we're always happy to see them again! They've been a fantastic year group and we'll certainly miss them.
