Every year, A level results day is one of nervous anticipation followed by delight as students receive their long-awaited examination results, and today was no exception at All Hallows Catholic College where again students are celebrating excellent results. Provisional indicators show that this year’s cohort made even stronger progress than previous years, with 30% of all grades achieved being A*/A and 81% at A*/C. The majority of students have secured their first-choice university place at some of the country’s top universities, including Oxford, Cambridge and Durham, while others have been successful securing very competitive apprenticeships.
Principal, Tim Beesley said, ‘We are very pleased with the A level results achieved by the whole year group, but more importantly we are delighted with all of the individual achievements and successes. I would like to thank all of the teachers and staff for their hard work, dedication and outstanding pastoral care, and our parents and families for their support.’
Chair of Governors, Mrs Jacqui Feely said, ‘Once again, I am absolutely thrilled with the results of all of our students and on behalf of the Governors would like to pass on my sincere thanks to their teachers, for the dedication with which they serve our students’.
Deputy Principal, Michelle Garvey, said ‘These results reflect their tremendous energy and commitment to their studies. As a year group they have been superb role-models for the rest of the College, demonstrating outstanding leadership and commitment to making a difference through their volunteer work and Catholic social enterprise projects. As they move on to the next stage of their lives, they carry with them great values and attitudes.’
This year, the highest achieving male and female students are Stephen Hughes and Lily Kennedy. Stephen will be reading Physics at Trinity College, Oxford and Lily, Dental Surgery at Sheffield University. Head Girl, Georgia Hall, was also among the highest-performing students. Georgia, who will take up her place to read Philosophy, Ethics and Religion at Leeds University, said “I couldn’t be more grateful for all of the support and guidance that I received from this amazing school. These past two years have been incredibly challenging, and I couldn’t have achieved my successes without All Hallows help”. Head Boy, Will Bainbridge, who is currently applying for apprenticeships, said “All Hallows has helped me to mature so much as a person, and I am grateful for all of the support I have had”. Megan Swindley, who is taking up her place at Hull York Medical School said, “I am delighted with my results, and I know I couldn’t have done this without the support of all the teachers”.
