Poynton High School Sixth Form students celebrate their amazing achievements after another record breaking year of results
Students and staff are celebrating another record breaking year at Poynton High School Sixth Form. This summer our 125 Year 13 students took over 400 A-Level examinations and have achieved record results across the board including 10% of all A-Levels being graded at the highest possible, prestigious A* Grade. With 4 students gaining 3 straight A* grades or more and 15% of students achieving 3 or more A/A* grades it is yet another year of great success by our students and recognition of all of the hard work by them, their families and our staff.
Once again our students have done themselves, their families and our school, proud. This cohort of students have been amongst the first across the country to study for the newly reformed academic A-Levels and these fabulous results are the culmination of so many hours of dedication and determination. With 25% of all our A-Levels being graded as A or A* it represents real life changing opportunities for our students. We have students now going off to study a truly awe inspiring range of courses at our country’s top universities, including medicine, law, dentistry and a vast range of other university courses. This is the culmination of many thousands of hours of hard work by our students and staff and I would like to wish all of our students the very best of luck as they move on to the next exciting chapter of their lives. Well done class of 2017!”
