Happiness as JCSC students receive A-Level results
Sixth Form students from James Calvert Spence College, Acklington Road, this morning received their A-Level results confirming places into many Universities across the UK after two years of hard work and determination.
David Nisbet, Head of School has released the following statement. “JCSC is pleased to announce improved Level 3 results this year. The average A Level grade was a C, while general vocational and vocational technical levels saw average grades rise to Distinction Plus and Distinction Star respectively.”
“There have been some outstanding individual results. Amy Hume and Susan Nelson have been our highest achieving students in terms of grades and progress (both achieved three Distinction* grades and a further Distinction). Other notable achievements include:
Kirsty Armstrong (three Bs)
Jamie Christie (three Bs and a Distinction*)
Manpreet Kaur (A, B and Distinction*)
Nathan Mossman (A, B and Distinction*)
Rachel Thew (A, A, B)
Kathryn Wilkinson (A*, A*, B)
Abby Sheldon, Nathan Mossman, Rachel Thew and Kirsty Armstrong with maths teacher, Mr McInally
Some students are still considering their options beyond their time at JCSC but the vast majority of students have gained their first choice places at university or apprenticeships. A record number of students are attending Russell Group universities: 43% of the cohort at the time of this release. A record percentage of our a students have chosen to attend university, despite the rising costs of higher education.
We are exceptionally proud of the notable achievements of our young people and the hard work of our teaching and support staff. We are grateful for the supportive role played by parents, carers and the local community. We wish our students every success in the future.”
