Key Stage 5 2017

Students at Goffs have once again achieved another excellent set of A Level exam results. Further 
improvements are evident in many of the key attainment measures, with students securing the 
highest A*/A rate in recent history. The overall pass rate was 99% and more than 4 out of every 5 
grades was at a C or higher. Approximately three quarters of the year group will progress to 
university or further education courses including Criminology, Environmental Engineering, 
Journalism, Construction, Law and Politics, Mathematics, Economics, Music, Zoology, Psychology, 
Philosophy and Biomedical Sciences, whilst the other students will progress directly into 
employment or apprenticeships. 

Just a few of our many students who have performed remarkably well, include: James Davis, 
Rebecca Dunne, Persia Humphreys, Katie Mears, Lucy Thompson and Eleanor Turner, who all 
achieved 3 or 4 A or A*grades at A Level. Lucy and Eleanor have secured places at Cambridge 
studying Geography and History respectively. 

Both staff and students have worked exceptionally hard this year to secure these fantastic grades, 
despite much turbulence in the education sector nationally. We are delighted that the vast majority of 
students are able to progress to their chosen next step having achieved the outcomes they were 
hoping for. It has also been a pleasure to see them develop into aspirational, enthusiastic and 
mature young adults who we are sure will achieve amazing things in the future.
