Havering Sixth Form College – Results 2018
Once again, I am delighted to announce excellent outcomes for our students in 2018. Our overall A Level pass rate, passes at A* and A, high grades A*-B and A-C are again higher than last year and this is part of a six-year improvement trend.
- 96.6% overall pass rate
- 11.2% of students achieved A*-A
- 33.3% of our students achieved A*-B
- 64% of students achieved A*-C
100% pass rates were achieved in the majority of our courses with nearly all achieving pass rates in excess of 90%.
Eight of our students will be going to study Medicine at University and one student has accepted a place to study at Cambridge University.
A Level subjects where students made better than expected progress, measured against national benchmarks, include many of the facilitating subjects favoured by the Russell Group Universities: Chemistry, Biology, History, French, Spanish and also Computer Science, English Language and Literature, Dance, Psychology, Geology, Accounting, Government and Politics, Business, Film Studies and the arts – Textiles, Photography, Graphics, Architecture & Interior Design, and Fine Art.
Many of our students now study predominantly vocational courses and we are also delighted to report that the results were up once again with 61% of full-time vocational students achieving a triple distinction and 87% achieving at least one distinction.
Havering Sixth Form College welcomes students of all abilities and offers a very broad curriculum - 35 A Levels and 70 courses in total with a wide and growing range of enrichments and work-related opportunities - and we are pleased that we enjoy success across that broad offer.
In addition, we are expecting that in the region of 700 students will once again be progressing to university and we are expecting that our pattern of 10% of students going to Russell Group universities, will continue.
A significant number of our students will be embarking on superb employment opportunities maintaining our record on achieving high quality destinations for all of our students.
We are very proud of this achievement for both our students and staff that will contribute towards our mission to be recognised regionally and nationally, as a centre of excellence for high quality education, social inclusion and outstanding progression for our students.
