2020 A Level Results
Akeley Wood Sixth Form students celebrated another year of outstanding A-Level results, with 58% of students achieving A* – B Grades, and 83% achieving a Grade C and above, we couldn’t be prouder of our Year 13 cohort. The hard work of our teachers and students have ensured that our Value Added Score has improved for a third year in a row, attaining almost 0.5 of a grade higher per pupil per subject above expected. Many students achieved Value Added Scores of +2, attaining an average of 2 grades above expected – so A’s instead of C’s.
“We are all celebrating today. Our students have worked hard this year and thoroughly deserve their exceptional sets of grades. It is heart-warming and extremely satisfying to hear them excitedly talking with their peers as they celebrate getting into their first choice university or gaining a coveted place at a leading international employer. I am very proud to be the Principal of this great school. The staff are dedicated professionals who strive for excellence. I know that they are also proudly celebrating today. We are delighted to hear that so many students have secured places at their first-choice universities, to read competitive subjects such as Politics, Business and . We wish them every success in their continued studies and future careers.”
