Huge, huge congratulations to those students who have received their A Level and GCSE results in the last two weeks.
Year 13 came up with a 100% A-C pass-rate which is brilliant considering the demands of the new course and the lack of supporting resources from the exam board. They achieved:
A-B 83% (nationally 47%)
A-C 100% (nationally 83%)
Best of luck to all of them in their chosen pathways, but especially to David (performance @ Royal Birmingham Conservatoire of Music), Beth (film composition @ Leeds College of Music) and Leah (hopefully, 2019 entry to either the Royal Marines or the Army Corps of Music). Please keep in touch!
At GCSE, despite worries about the new course in terms of both breadth of content and overall demand, UVHS has maintained its superb record of achievement:
Grade 9 38% (nationally 8%)
Grade 9-7 88% (nationally 32%)
Grade 9-5 100% (nationally 72%)
A huge WELL DONE to all of them and GOOD LUCK with A Levels/Apprenticeships/BTECs etc. Please keep us informed of your progress and good news!
