A Level Results 2017

Head of Sixth Form, Mrs Edwards, was extremely happy with the improved A Level results and celebrated with students collecting their A Level, AS Level and vocational course results at Virgo Fidelis Catholic Senior School Sixth Form. 91.3% of students of all abilities passed a wide variety of subjects at A Level, with 98.2% of students passing vocational subjects such as CACHE Level 3, Btec Level 3 and OCR Nationals. Students gained the best set of results in the last 5 years with 31.8% of students gaining A*-B, up from 15% last year.

A number of subjects achieved a 100% pass rate including Art, Business Studies, Dance, English Literature, Media Studies and Spanish. Classical civilisation, Film Studies, French and History all achieved 100% A*-C.  Many students who applied achieved their first choice university. At A2 Level, there were some excellent individual successes with one student achieving A*AAB, she is going on to study Biomedical Science at Queen Mary’s University.

36 students studied CACHE Level 3 with 100% pass rate, many of these students had a significantly lower average point score at GCSE than the National Average so have made fantastic progress during their time in the Sixth Form.

Chair of Governors Femi Oresanya is very proud of all of the students results and thanks the staff for their continued work to raise standards at Virgo Fidelis Catholic Senior School.
