Students and staff at Yateley School are absolutely delighted with the continued excellent performance of their Sixth Form students in A Level and BTEC examinations. Over half, 53.2% of all grades achieved were within the coveted A*-B range; an outstanding achievement and recognition of not only excellent academic standards, but also the progress made by students. Most importantly, an overall pass rate of 98% means that students at Yateley will go on to demanding and rewarding opportunities in degree courses and higher level apprenticeships. Amongst these, James Linton has earned a place to read Medicine at Cardiff University and Robin Shome will be studying Medicine at Manchester University.
Within a very accomplished cohort there have been outstanding individual performances. Oliver Ross is the top performer with three A* grades, an A grade and secures his place at Oxford University to read Mathematics. He is very closely followed by Harry Jamfrey with his three A*s. Exceptionally strong subject performances came from Mathematics (52% A*-A), Physics (72% A*-B), Child Care, Chemistry, Theatre Studies, Politics and Business Studies
Headteacher Paul German said “I am absolutely thrilled with these superb results. They demonstrate the commitment to excellence in the school and the sheer talent of our amazing students and staff.” “The outstanding rated sixth form has performed well at all levels once again. Educational quality is very high and with an inclusive offer that ensures success for all.” The 2018 Ofsted report had said “Teaching in the sixth form is invariably very strong, and often exemplary.” These results demonstrate this perfectly. Mr German went on to say “I extend my warmest congratulations and thanks to the whole team who have excelled themselves and succeeded in setting our young people well on the way towards success and accomplishment in the future.”
