A-Level Results Day 2022
All of the students from Bridlington Sixth Form are onto their chosen pathways, whether it be university, higher apprenticeship, degree apprenticeship or employment. University remains the most popular option with 68% of students choosing this route. With all the coverage in the press about students’ lower expectations this year it was pleasing to see our highest ever number of applications to Russell Group universities with 100% of those who applied to these prestigious universities receiving offers.
Kate Parker-Randall, Headteacher said:
“We are so very proud of all our 6th form students have achieved this year, with so many excellent individual performances in the first set of exams since 2019. Our students have shown incredible resilience and determination in overcoming the disruption to their learning as a result of the Covid pandemic. These are skills that will serve them well in their futures and we are delighted that 100% of our students are successfully onto their next step. Our staff have been brilliant in the way they have supported our 6th form students over the last two years. We wish all our Year 13 leavers every success for the future and look forward to hearing your progress and success stories as you keep in touch through our vibrant alumni as an Old Bridlingtonian.”
Many students are continuing their education at university to study a vast array of courses from… Accounting, Ancient History, Biomedical Sciences, Business Management, Criminology, English, English Literature, Equine Science and Business, Fashion, Forensic Anthropology, Games Design, History, Law, Mechatronic Engineering, Medicine, Nursing, Primary teaching, Policing, Politics, Sports Coaching, Sports Development, Sports Journalism, Sports Marketing, Sports Rehab and Theatre, while others are continuing their studies through higher level apprenticeships and employment ranging from a tattoo artist to joining the Navy as a submariner engineer technician. Whatever the next step we are proud to ‘Hand on the torch of life’ as our students go out to make their mark on the world.
Simon Pick, Assistant Headteacher and outgoing Head of Sixth Form said, ‘They are a fantastic year group who have been an absolute pleasure. It has been a privilege to see them develop into the incredible young adults they are. These results reflect the resilience and independent study skills they developed due to the significant disruption to their A-level studies during the pandemic. Because of the qualities they have developed, they will hit the ground running and absolutely fly in their next steps, whether it be university, apprenticeship or employment’.
