Stoke College students were celebrating today with some exceptional A-Level results.
Key highlights were:
44% of all grades at an A*- A
83% of all grades at A-C
100% pass rate
Particular congratulations to Harry Dilnot, who achieved four A*s in Mathematics, Further Mathematics, Physics and Computer Science and will read Computer Science at King’s College, London, and to Olivia Monro who achieved three As in English Literature, History and Mathematics and will read English and Mandarin at the University of Exeter. Olivia said of the school: “the reason I stayed on at Stoke for Sixth Form was the teachers. I knew I wouldn’t have achieved these grades anywhere else and now I am so excited to be going to Exeter.”
Stoke College Sixth Form was established in 2018; impressive A-Level results this early on is quite an achievement, and bodes extremely well for the future. All of Stoke College’s students, including Sixth Form students, have been supported with an innovative approach to online learning throughout the pandemic. The school was one of the first schools in the UK to offer full online learning as a result of the pandemic with a programme of support that included live lessons, mentoring, one on one support and social activities.
Dr Lloyd, Principal, commented: “I would like to take this opportunity to thank the teachers and support staff of Stoke College, as well as the parents of our sixth form students, for their exemplary commitment in helping our students to achieve so well. We wish each and every leaver all the very best as they embark upon the next stage of their lives and careers.”
These results come at an exciting time for the school. The new Head, Dr Gareth Lloyd, who joined in May swiftly announced a new partnership with Barnardiston Prep School and a programme of investment in the school’s facilities.
