The overall pass rate for Ackworth School A-Level pupils was 95% and we are very proud of our leavers as they look to a bright future. Our pupils have good reason to celebrate today having achieved a good set of results in the 2019 A-Level exams. 15% of pupils received A*-A grades and 43% A*-B grades.
95% of our pupils achieved an overall pass rate and results were particularly strong in the Sciences again with a pass rate of 96% and in Art and PE where every pupil achieved A*-B.
Several of our pupils did very well, achieving A*s and As, Roy He achieved one A* and two As and Olivia Howden achieved three As, but we are also proud of those pupils who had to work very hard to achieve a pass.
Commenting on the results, Anton Maree, Head of Ackworth School said: “These results reflect the hard work and commitment of our pupils, parents and staff who have supported them. Ackworth has never been a selective school but our results are consistent. We encourage all of our pupils, who come from many different backgrounds, and several different countries to do their best in everything they set out to achieve.”
94% per of pupils who received their A-Level results last week had secured their choice of university, with many going to The Russell Group which represents the 24 leading universities in the UK.
Some of the leaver University destinations include University of Edinburgh, University College London, University of Leeds and the Royal Northern College of Music, Manchester.
