Once again students at All Hallows Catholic College, Macclesfield are celebrating excellent A Level results. Provisional indicators are that 72% of grades achieved were A*-B grades and 89% A*-C. The majority of students have secured their first choice university place at some of the country’s top universities including Oxford, Durham and Kings College, London, while others have been successful securing very competitive apprenticeships.
Acting Principal, Peter Nickson said, ‘We are delighted with the A level results achieved which are
testament to our hardworking students, their teachers, the outstanding pastoral care of their tutors and their supportive parents.”
Chair of Governors, Mrs Jaqui Feely said, ‘I am absolutely delighted with the results of all of our
students and would like to pass on my sincere thanks to their teachers’.
Acting Deputy Principal, Michelle Garvey said, ‘At a time when A Level programmes have been subject to significant change, our students have demonstrated resilience and determination. These results reflect their tremendous energy and commitment to their studies. As a year group they have been great 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 Sebastian Dooley and Josephine
Bowers. Seb will be reading Mathematics at Warwick University and Josie, Mathematics at Durham University. Head Boy, Ben Wardle and Head Girl, Megan Edwards are also among the highest performing students. Ben who will take up his place to read Religion and Philosophy at Kings College, London, said,“I have loved my time at All Hallows. The college has been amazing, not only in terms of academic learning but also as a supportive and inclusive community. Thank you so much to everyone for helping me achieve these results. I am so proud of how everyone has done.” Megan, who rejected an unconditional offer in favour of studying Marketing at Liverpool University, said, “The results we have all achieved are not only a reflection of our own hard work, but also that of all the staff who have supported us; we couldn’t have done this without them. Thank you”.
