Celebrating A Level Results for Goffs School
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.
Ben Pearce, Associate Principal, commented that,
“Both staff and students have worked exceptionally hard this year to secure these fantastic grades, despite much turbulence in the education sector nationally. I am 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 I am sure will achieve amazing things in the future.”
