Picture: Top students celebrate exam success at Aldridge School
Aldridge School is pleased to report some outstanding achievements by its students in their GCSEs, A levels and other qualifications this summer.
At A Level outstanding results included Alex Skellern (A* A* A* A*) going to University of Manchester to study Mathematics & Physics, Leia Wedge (A* A A) going to University of Manchester to study Neuroscience, Ayesha Nahoor (A* A A) going to Harper & Keele Veterinary School to study Veterinary Medicine and Surgery, Dylan Styles (A* A A) going to University of Sheffield to study Business Management, Orlagh Carlin (A A A) going to Durham University to study Archaeology & Ancient Civilisations, Lily Smyth (A A A) going to Nottingham University to study Archaeology and Geography and Sunaina Zahir (A A A) going to University of Liverpool to study Psychology. At GCSE students with top grades included Freddie Sallis, Jessica Sangha, Elsie Smyth, Ella Wilkinson, Kamren Mistry, Isabelle Holden and Ellie Beckett.
This year, following the cancellation of exams, grades were awarded through a process of teacher assessed grades, against a national standard and approved and awarded by the exam boards. The government is not publishing performance data for any schools or colleges this year due to the varying impact of the pandemic.
The school’s Headteacher, Ian Bryant, said: “We are very proud of the work and achievements of all of our students after such a difficult and disrupted year. Our teachers worked hard to ensure that students were supported to achieve their best and to be able to progress to sixth form or other further education and study. We look forward to seeing what they will achieve in the future.”
