A Level Results 2019
‘Blue School A Level results amongst the highest in the south west’
Students at The Blue School are celebrating an outstanding set of A Level outcomes as a consequence of this year’s results.
Students at all levels have achieved exceptionally well. Almost half of all grades were at the highest A* or A grade, a figure that is likely to be nearly double the national achievement rate. Over 80% of entries were achieved at grades A*-C, an outcome that demonstrates the depth of success within the school. With over 300 exam entries at the largest school sixth form in Somerset, this translates to a huge number of students who have given themselves the best opportunity for the future.
Last year’s results placed the school amongst the highest achieving of any institution across the south west of England. It is likely that these results with be at a similarly high level.
Headteacher, Mark Woodlock, commented, ‘We are absolutely delighted that the hard work and application of our students has paid off for them with such exceptional results. These results illustrate the talent that the students possess, the excellence of the teaching they have experienced and the strength of the relationships that have been built within the School.’
‘These results are the product of our educational and local community, of which we consider ourselves a key part. We thank all of those who have supported these students during their time at school. We believe that our community should be justifiably proud of its students and of the school that serves Wells and the surrounding area.’
The vast majority of students have achieved their first choice university place or are able to embark upon their chosen career path. These include numerous places at the strongest universities across the country, including Oxford and Cambridge, and a wide range of courses and careers.
Bridget Cox, Assistant Headteacher responsible for the Sixth Form, said, ‘I am extremely proud of the achievements of all of our students. We consider it our mission to provide our students with the best opportunities for the next steps in their education and careers. This group of young people have amply demonstrated their academic ability, complementing the positive role models that we know they have become.’
