Students, staff and proud parents celebrate A'Level Success
After weeks of waiting nervously for their results, Year 13 students were able to celebrate their hard work and success.
Students at King Edward VII Science and Sport College are celebrating the successful end to A level studies. Despite a tragic and traumatic start to the year which affected many students in year 13, students have demonstrated real resilience and determination to succeed. Everyone who wanted to has secured a place at university (87%) and others have secured high level apprenticeships.
The number of students gaining the top grades of A*-C is 65% with a 97% pass rate overall. Of special mention are the following students who all obtained 3 A or A* grades:

Joanna Marsden A*, A, A
Joanna is going to study Bio-Medical Science at Birmingham University. She expressed gratitude to the staff at the College and said, “They helped me to decide which subjects were best and helped me to choose which university was best for me. I have met amazing people and great teachers.”
