10th August 2021 — Sixth Form students and staff at St Joseph’s College are celebrating a superb set of A Level results this morning. With 95% of entries achieving A*-C grades and a fantastic 27% of all entries achieving A*s, there is much to commend.
Over a third of the students achieved straight A*/A grades and have secured places on competitive courses at some of the country’s leading universities.
Once again, the range of courses and universities is extremely exciting, proving that no one route fits all. Students will soon be studying courses ranging from Law to Medicinal Chemistry, from Mechanical Engineering to Creative Music Technology, at universities from Nottingham to Southampton, from Sussex to Warwick.
We are also proud of our students for the other skills that they have learned at St Joseph’s, which will equip them for success at university and beyond. As well as studying for A Levels, they have spent their two years of Sixth Form broadening their horizons, learning life skills and preparing for the future – whether being part of the CAFOD Youth Leadership scheme, running their own company as part of the Young Enterprise programme, or completing the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ).
Andrew Colpus, Headmaster at St Joseph’s, said:
“I am delighted to congratulate our students on a superb set of exam results that are a true reflection of their hard work. I recognise that this has been a very difficult year, with our students facing much uncertainty due to covid-19. I am extremely proud of all that they have achieved and wish them the best of luck as they move on to the next stage of their education.
I would also like to recognise and thank our remarkable staff, who have guided our students through an unpredictable year and supported them every step of the way.”
