Hayesfield Mixed Sixth Form achieves dazzling results
The Summer sun can’t outshine the results as students and teachers at Hayesfield Mixed Sixth Form are also celebrating yet another set of record-breaking A-Level results. A truly outstanding set of results sees students receiving one third of their graded entries at the highest A and A* standard with nearly two thirds of all grades awarded at A* to B.
Headteacher, Emma Yates said, “Following on from Ofsted highlighting our Sixth Form as outstanding this Spring we are, once again, delighted and proud of our students’ achievements. Hayesfield Mixed Sixth Form offers a unique experience that gives students a head start for success in their A Levels and vocational qualifications and for life beyond school. From work experience to political and social awareness students receive expert help and guidance. They gain confidence in selecting post-18 destinations and gain confidence from the one-to-one support they receive from their teachers and tutor. Students’ hard work and talent, with the support of our committed staff, have led to a tremendous set of results.”
Over one-third of Hayesfield Sixth Formers will take up places at highly selective Russell Group universities places compared with the 7% average for the South West of England. Students who have secured prestigious university places include Zara Dando who will be studying Mechanica Engineering at Exeter and Alex Stanley studying Philosophy at Durham. Four students will be heading to Oxbridge in 2017, Lucy Cryer ( Engineering), Melissa May ( Anglo-Saxon, Norse and Celtic) at Cambridge and Maia Webb-Hayward ( Fine Art) and Megan Chant ( Medicine) at Oxford. We’re also very proud of Bella Lloyd who secured a competitive higher apprenticeship with Deloitte in accountancy.
