St. Anne’s Sixth Form is delighted to report truly outstanding achievements by our students in their A level and Level 3 BTEC qualifications this summer.

Students are pursuing a whole range of exciting pathways. The majority of students will be studying at university this autumn with students securing places at a number of top universities including the University of Cambridge, the London School of Economics and Political Science, University College London, SOAS University of London, Cardiff University and the University of Nottingham. Other students have decided to take up higher level apprenticeships, including our Head Girl Rhian Keady who has secured a degree level apprenticeship in Construction Management with Wilmott Dixon.

64% of students studying 3 A Levels achieved grades ABB or higher, with 40% achieving at least A*AA. This reflects the exceptional dedication and diligence that they have displayed throughout the pandemic. Overall, 77% of all A level grades were A*-B grades.

Shamira Kapuku achieved A* grades in History, English Literature and Psychology and will be studying Human, Social and Political Science at the University of Cambridge this autumn.

Lucy Tottle-Nugent achieved A* grades in History, Mathematics, Psychology and the EPQ and will be studying History, Politics and Economics at University College London.

Nicole Tissot achieved A* grades in French, Philosophy and Ethics, and Sociology and will be studying Liberal Arts at the University of Nottingham.

The Head Girl Team, made up of Rhian Keady, Susane Nghotchouang, Ciara Mulherin, Sharon Ezeagu, Rose Kelly and Gemma Falade, are the most successful in the history of St. Anne’s, with a combined total of twelve A Levels at grade A*, six at grade A and three A* grades in the EPQ.

Of our students studying Level 3 BTEC courses (either alone or in combination with one or more A Level subjects), 100% achieved the equivalent of CCC at A Level, with 61% achieving the equivalent of ABB and 26% achieving the equivalent of A*AA.

Ciara Patterson achieved D* grades in BTEC Business and BTEC Art and Design (Graphics) and an A grade in A Level Geography. She will be pursuing an apprenticeship in Site Management.

This year, following the cancellation of exams, grades were awarded through a process of teacher assessed grades, against a national standard and approved and awarded by the exam boards. The government is not publishing performance data for any schools or colleges this year due to the varying impact of the pandemic.

Mrs Emma Loveland, headteacher, said “We are thrilled for our students. They are so ready for the next stage of their learning journey, having used this most difficult of years to develop both resilience and a solution driven approach to their academic studies. We are really proud of their achievements and have no doubt they will continue to flourish, making an invaluable contribution to our society”.
