High is celebrating some outstanding individual student and subject results
today, particularly for those studying BTEC National Diploma where 72%
of the students achieved Distinction*/Distinction grades, with 97% of students
passing their chosen courses.
A* - B grades were
also achieved in 70% of the academic subjects offered at A2 Level, which really highlights the depth and breadth
of skills and knowledge our students acquire during the academic year. Most notable were Accounting, Economics,
Further Mathematics and Modern Foreign Languages.
There has been
significant focus within Barnhill to ensure students are well placed to go on
to their next stage in life and, once again, are delighted that over 80% of the
students are going on to University.
Our top two
students have achieved 3 A*/A grades and will be studying medicine at
achieving excellent results, Utkarsh Aneja (2 A*s and a B) will be studying
Mathematics at Nottingham.
Pavan Cheeta and Ricky
Ghedia both received 3 As and will be studying Mathematics at Birmingham and
Economics at Nottingham respectively.
should also be made of Ankit Khanna who received 2 As and a B and will be
starting his prestigious apprenticeship with KPMG.
Strong results were
also obtained by our Year 12 AS cohort despite media reports of possible
volatility of results at that level. An
increase in A* to B grades means that we are on course for even better outcomes
for our students next year.
Executive Head Tracey Hemming said: “The drive for
improvement and academic success at Barnhill is continuous and is reflected in
these results. There are many well deserved successes to celebrate today and
many students are well prepared for the next part of their educational journey.
The staff at Barnhill and I couldn’t be more pleased for them.”
