A Level Results 2012
A level results achieve new record.
At a time when nationally the percentage of A* grades declined, Collingwood’s 2012 results comfortably exceeded the national average of 7.9%. The College nearly doubled its performance at A* in 2011 with 9.3% of all entries receiving the coveted top grade.
Collingwood’s Principal, Jerry Oddie, said,” We are delighted with these excellent results, which are a testimony to the high calibre of my colleagues and the hard work of staff and students. Last year we set ourselves a target of raising our percentage of A* grades and at a time when the national trend is downwards, it is very pleasing to see that we are now well above the national average at A*. This is clear evidence of our ability to compete with the best schools in the country, when it comes to stretching our very able students.”
Two students, Connor O’Pray and Alice Levett obtained a remarkable 4 A* passes, whilst the College’s two Oxbridge candidates, Paul Wilmore and Chloe Ransom successfully met their entry requirements achieving all A*/A grades. Two further students, Juho Myllys and Jamie Pang will read Economics at LSE, having also obtained all A*/A passes.
Overall 53.4% of all entries obtained and A*-B pass and the overall College pass rate was 99%.
Mr Oddie concluded, “Collingwood consistently achieves success at A Level and 2012 has been no exception. Students know that if they gain admission to our Sixth Form they have every prospect of obtaining good grades and moving on to university”.
