A Level Press Release

August 2019

UVHS would like to congratulate all of our students who collected their A Levels – we hope that they are just as proud of their achievements as we are.

Some of the results that really do stand out are below, and we are exceptionally proud of these students’ achievements:

Phillip A*A*A*A - Manchester (Computer Science & Maths)
Oliver A*A*A*A* - Newcastle (Medicine)
Iona A*A*A*A* - Glasgow (Veterinary Medicine)
Lexi A*A*A*-  Gap Year
Simone A*A*A*- Northumbria (Criminology and Forensics)
Megan A*AAA - Newcastle (Medicine)
Bella A*AA - Durham (English Literature and Philosophy)
Alex A*AAB – Leeds (Economics)
Joe A*AA - Gap Year
Melissa AAAAB - Nottingham (Pharmacy)

The majority of Year 13 students hoping to go to university next year have been accepted into their first choice universities with several other offers pending.  Also considerable number of students have also qualified to take up highly sought after degree apprenticeships with the likes of BuroHappold and local accountancy firms as well as a record number of Higher Apprenticeship positions with BAE.

Head of Sixth Form Mr RASTELLI said: “Yet again, we have a Year 13 cohort whose overall performance reflects the commitment, dedication and sheer hard work that they have put into their time at UVHS, both inside and outside the classroom – the excellent results achieved by them are fully deserved. As usual, it has been an absolute privilege and pleasure working with these students and I wish them all the brightest of futures."

Mr HARDWICK, Headteacher says: “We are again delighted with the outcomes that this year’s UVHS Year 13 students have achieved and are proud of each and every one of them. These results reflect how a true learning community can come together in order to provide the very best opportunities for our young adults.  Not only is it down to the incredibly hard work and commitment demonstrated by each and every student, but also the dedication and quality of our teaching and support staff alongside the superb levels of encouragement and focus fostered by parents and families.”

The majority of schools in Cumbria and all those in the Furness Education Consortium have decided to co-ordinate publishing aggregate results data in early September. This is to allow the performance to be thoroughly checked and include the normal reviews of marking and appeals processes. By doing this schools, the media and parents can be confident that the post-review data will be consistent across all schools and will be subject to little change afterwards.

The data will be published in good time, to ensure it is available to parents and pupils making decisions about secondary school applications. However, we at UVHS will still be celebrating the many individual successes of our students as we always have done.
