Mike Garlick, the principal of The Regis School, praised his students for their hard work in gaining strong A-level results yesterday.
He said: “Our sixth form students have worked extremely hard over the last two years to achieve their results this year.
“With new linear (final exam) and BTEC courses being more complex than in the past, I am proud of our students and teachers in being able to make the progress we have when compared to last year.
“We have a record number of students applying for and gaining places at universities around the country and others gaining high level apprenticeships.
“Our sixth form offers an exciting and successful blend of academic and applied courses and, each year, the number joining it increases.”
The number of students who will join the school’s sixth form next month is expected to reach 100.
Other A-level students at the school who did well included:
- Louis Smith – A* maths, A* further maths, A physics and B business studies;
- Anna Wisdom – triple distinction* BTEC music, distinction* BTEC media and distinction* performing arts; and
- Faith Harding – double distinction* BTEC music and distinction performing arts.
Among the subjects in which the students did best this year were maths, further maths, physics, drama, geography and health and social care.
