Bishop Challoner Sixth form has maintained its excellent results for another year, with a record number of students starting at some of the world’s top universities after the Summer. Students from this year’s A Level and BTEC cohort look forward to continuing their studies at Cambridge, Warwick, Imperial, Queen Mary’s, Kings College London, Manchester and many more world renowned universities.

On average 29% of A Level students achieved an A*/A grade, with 52% of results overall at A*-B (average percentages across all subjects). It has also been a fantastic year for BTEC results across a wide range of subjects, and many students have also secured top apprenticeships.

Particular congratulations go to Hakimul Islam who received 4 A* grades at A Level and is going on to read Law at St Johns College Cambridge. He's overjoyed with his results, saying:  “I’m exhilarated to be starting at Cambridge in October. I couldn’t have done this without all the support I received from my teachers and the Sixth Form staff.”

Heads of Sixth Form Andrew Warburton and Helen Livermore are very pleased with this year’s results, saying: “We could not be prouder of our Year 13 students, who have achieved the outstanding results that they worked hard for throughout the year. This is a real testament to their dedication, to the high standards we set within the Sixth Form and to the support and guidance our students receive. We wish them all the best for the future”.

Richard Fitzgerald, Executive Headteacher, is also delighted with the results, saying:“I am delighted to see so many of our young people achieve so very well and we are all proud to see them go on to the bright futures they deserve. That they have done so is a tribute to their efforts, those of their excellent teachers and the tremendous support that the parents at our school always offer. We wish them all the greatest of success in their future studies.
