Key Stage 5 2018

Our students have performed exceptionally well in their Key Stage 5 results this year. Over half of all A Level grades were at B or higher, and 1 in 5 grades at A Level were at A or A* - the highest proportion achieved in recent history. For Vocational courses, over half of the grades achieved were at Distinction or Distinction*. Around three quarters of the year group will progress to university or further education courses including History, Criminology, Accounting, Law, Mathematics, Economics, Sports Journalism, Fashion, Acting, Sociology, Architecture, Clinical Studies, English Literature, Geology, Geography, Chemistry and Medical Engineering, to name but a few. Universities being attended are wide-ranging, including Sheffield, Bath, Lancaster, Manchester, UCL, Warwick and Cardiff. Many students will also be joining top flight apprenticeships, such as at Ernst & Young and Mindshare or moving directly into planned employment into careers including the Fire Service and the Army.

Just a few of our many students who have performed remarkably well, include Alex Coombe, Megan Horridge, Tara McCormack, George Sexton and Megan Sheridan, who all achieved 3 or 4 A or A*grades at A Level. Luca Franciosa achieved exceptional outcomes with 4 A* grades in Computer Science, Mathematics, Further Mathematics and the Extended Project Qualification.

Despite such large numbers of new specifications being examined for the first time this year – over 20, I am delighted that Goffs students were able to achieve such excellent results, enabling the vast majority to move to their planned next steps. Both students and staff have worked incredibly hard to get to this point, and the outcomes are truly well-deserved. It has been a pleasure to watch our students grow into the upstanding and aspirational young adults that they now are, and I am sure that they will progress on to many future successes.
