Joint 6th Form Press Release
The Beaminster and Sir John Colfox Joint 6th form are again celebrating excellent A Level results for their students. 70% of the grades achieved were between A*-C, 42% A*-B and the pass rate was 97% overall. In a year when the national pass rate dipped, the Joint 6th Form students have performed very well indeed.
Commenting on the performance of the students Colfox Headteacher David Herbert said: ‘I am very proud of all the students and their results are testament to the hard work they have put in. Of course the amazing results of those at the very top end will always stand out, but right through the cohort there are some lovely stories of students who have worked hard and made brilliant progress. I wish them all the best of luck in the next exciting phase of their lives’
There were some ‘stand out’ performances for a high number of students. Villo Bernard achieved A*A*A*A , Lucie Fry A*AA, Polly Sutliffe AAAA, Caitlin Appleton Scott AAB, Hannah Rist AAB, Eloise Levien A*BB , Tyler Hulbert ABB, Lottie Hyde A*A*A*, Holly Marriage A*AA, Isabel Mitchelson A*AA, Asha Ponsford-Maguire A*AA, Jonathon Greenwood AAA, Robyn Edwards A*AA, Ruth Daniels A*AA, Imogen Burwood AAB, Rhiannon Emm A*AC, Kazia Hodder A*A*C and Ella Horne A*AB.
Beaminster Headteacher Keith Hales was very pleased with the results and said: ‘I am delighted that so many of the students have achieved results that are enabling them to progress onto the university course , or career path, of their choice. In a system that is becoming more and more difficult the students in the 6th form have done themselves proud’.
This is the first year where student’s performance at the end of Year 12 (AS level) will not count towards their final A Level grade in many subjects. However, students in the Joint 6th Form did still take AS exams which will give them a good guide of the direction they are heading in. Again, there were some excellent results for these students. Theo Everley took on the daunting prospect of sitting 7 AS courses and he received grade A’s in 6 of them! Evie Dixon achieved AAAA, Rose Jones AABC, Theo Jones ABB, Amelia Mundy AABB and Immy Thomas AABB, Joana Bishop AABB, Jan Ferris AAAB, Mary Foster-Grellis AABC, Benjamin Jackson ABBC, Matthew Webb AAAB and Zac Withers AABB.
Reflecting on the positive results David Herbert also pointed to the hard work of the staff in helping the students. ‘One of the special features of our joint 6th form is the personal guidance and individual support that the teachers give to the students. They always appreciate it and there is no doubt it is a very important part of the on-going success of the 6th form.
