QEGS Sixth Form bucks the national trend!

One of the best sets of sixth form results in QEGS history!

Academic Results:

  • This year, amazingly, 67% of A Level students gained at least one A* or A grade compared to 55% in 2019 and 48% in 2021 which was already a great standard – this year is something special!
  • Average points per entry is 44 (up from 40 in 2019), expressed as a grade this means the average grade for a student is a B+.
  • 100% pass rate in all A-Level courses – remarkable!

Vocational/Technical Results:

  • 100% pass rate in all BTEC courses.
  • 93% of all BTEC students achieved at least one Distinction or D* in their BTEC Qualifications which is a huge step up from the 78% that achieved this in 2019.
  • Average points score (per candidate) of 38.79 up from 33.42 in 2019 which means, expressed as a grade, the average grade a student achieved is a Distinction+. Such a high standard, phenomenal in fact!

An incredible year for our students and we are justifiably proud of the fantastic results they have achieved.

Amazing individual results:

The 2022 QEGS A Level results are outstanding, with many amazing individual results; led by Flora Kanan who achieved 4 A* grades, Laura Burton who achieved 3 A* grades and an A grade, Francesca Farrand who achieved 3 A* grades, Isaac Harrington who achieved 3 A* grades, Sophie Ashworth who achieved 3 A* grades, Evie Selby who achieved 3 A* grades and Alex Radlett who achieved 3 A* grades.

76% of all our entries were graded A*-B, which is an exceptional achievement compared to 2019’s already very high 70%.

Students also excelled in the Vocational and BTEC subjects. In the Extended Diploma courses, Triple Distinction Stars (D*D*D*) were awarded to Holly Bishop, Lydia Klenczar and Robyn Tilsley for Art and Design. Emily Hill, Phoebe Keeling, Sam Keeling and Ethan Wallis all achieved Triple Distinction Stars (D*D*D*) for Sport and Exercise Science. All these students will be proceeding to university courses ranging from Fine Art (BA hons) to Sport and Exercise Science (BSc hons).

Names of students who have exceeded their target grades and scored the highest value added were Will Carroll, Hugo Allen, Thomas Byron, Starla-Mae Hooley and Will Stelfox all of which improved their average grade received by well over 1 compared to their initial external estimates. A huge well done to these students for their achievements.

Scott Garrity, Headteacher said: “Wow. I am truly humbled by the achievements of our students after they have faced two of the most difficult years of their education and teenage lives. This cohort did not sit GCSE exams due to Covid, their whole Yr11 education was cancelled in March 2020, they did not have a Yr11 Prom, they were taught online for large parts of Yr12 and missed out on so many other experiences at school. To achieve these grades, one of the best set of results in QEGS history is simply staggering. Students, parents and QEGS staff  – please celebrate, you have earned it!”

Louise Allen, Head of Sixth Form said: “Our students have achieved great things during their time at Sixth Form and we are immensely proud of the fantastic young people they are. Today’s outstanding results are a reflection of the incredible work ethic, resilience and commitment that our students have shown throughout a challenging educational climate. We would like to take this opportunity to thank them for being a pleasure to work with in such difficult times. We would also like to thank our post 16 teaching staff and tutors who have worked tirelessly to ensure that our students are well supported and prepared for their final assessments, ensuring that a positive and calm outlook remained throughout.”

As part of QEGSMAT, Anne Martin the CEO, sends her congratulations to all the QEGS students for their incredible achievements during the past two challenging and disrupted years. Thank you to the teachers and staff who have worked to support the students at QEGS, in particular Year 13. These outcomes reflect everyone’s commitment, hard work and positive attitudes. Anne wishes the students all the very best in the next chapter of their lives.

Needless to say, this same set of teachers and tutors are on hand today and this week and will be happy to help should any of our students need any advice and support. We also look forward to hearing the success stories over the coming years.

Our vision remains. We care; therefore, we question, we explore, we give and we succeed together. To ‘be the best you can possibly be’ takes more than just academic success. Students need to be happy, with a healthy body and mind and we hope that QEGS has helped play a part in our students pursuing happy and successful lives in the future.
