Another Year of Top Results for our Sixth Form



Bishop Challoner Sixth form is pleased to report another year of top results for its Year 13 cohort. As expected, the Sixth Form has maintained its incredibly high standards, with a large number of students leaving to some of the world’s top universities. Approximately half of the A Level candidates received A*-B grades, with three quarters achieving A*-C. Leavers look forward to continuing their studies at Cambridge, LSE, Warwick, Imperial, Queen Mary’s, Kings College London, Leeds, Bath and many more world class universities.

Through a rigorous two-year programme of world class teaching, pastoral support and information, advice and guidance, Bishop Challoner Sixth Form staff ensure each student is constantly motivated and challenged. Heads of Sixth Form Andrew Warburton and Helen Livermore are very pleased with this year’s results, saying: “We are incredibly proud of our Year 13 students who have achieved some outstanding results. We are particularly proud of our Mathematics students of whom over 50% achieved an A* or A. It is a testament to their hard work and the high standards set within the Sixth Form. We wish them all the best fortune in the future”.



Richard Fitzgerald, Executive Principal, also praised the students, saying: "We are delighted with this year’s results and it is good to see that once again around  half of all our grades are at B or above and our students are matching or beating their offers and getting into their first choice universities as a result.Our value added scores will be even higher this year than last and once again the number of our students getting places at the country’s top universities including Oxbridge rivals the most selective of sixth form colleges. I would like to thank all the staff, the students themselves and the support of their parents and families for another very successful year for our sixth form."

Bishop Challoner Sixth Form is a part of Bishop Challoner Catholic Federation of Schools, and is rated ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted. This year it was reaccredited as a ‘World Class’ school.
