A Level Examination Results 2017
Students and staff at Sponne School in Towcester are celebrating another excellent set of A Level results this year with many individuals achieving outstanding grades. Results have been very good for many years with most achieving the highest grades available. Just under 50% of students gained the very highest A*-B grades with all students passing. Students did particularly well with the very highest grades of A* and A grade with a quarter of all results being achieved at these levels.
Amongst the many delighted students today was one who achieved A*’s in all of her subjects, Lucy Adams, who with Laura Simpson (who gained 2A*’s and 1A) will be starting at Oxford University in the new academic year. In addition to this, both Katie Kitchen and Jake Ward gained 2A* and 1A grades in their three A Levels plus an extra AS A grade. Harriet Noy, Evie Bilioni and Jack Holmes all gained an A* and 2 As, whilst a number of other students gained all As in their subjects including Josh Adams, Peter Best, Michael Fish and Sophia King. Many other students gained at least 1 A* or A in their set of results.
Executive Headteacher Dr Jamie Clarke said: “We are really proud of our students who have done so well in gaining these excellent results. It is reassuring that the grades reflect the hard work that students put in and the outstanding teaching and support provided by the staff at Sponne School. Well done to all our students, including those who have secured their first choice university places.”
Miss Victoria Austin, Head of Sixth Form from Sponne, said: “I am always amazed by the high standards our students achieve and want to congratulate them on their excellent results. I am so pleased for them and wish them all the best in the future”.
GCSE Examination Results 2017
Students at Sponne School in Towcester have again achieved outstanding results in their GCSE exams. This pattern of exceptional performance has continued for a seventh successive year with students not only attaining highly but showing significantly greater progress than would be expected nationally from their starting points at the end of Year 6. Despite the forecast ‘chaos’ with new English and maths qualifications and a 9-1 assessment the results at Sponne not only held up but in many aspects improved for students of all abilities.
Among the many delighted students celebrating today were Ellie Massey who gained 11 A* and 1 A grades, Olivia Adams who gained 10 A* and 1 A grades, Will Ferreira-Dyke who gained 8 A* and 3 A grades, Izzy Grant, Jared Kent and Bethany Dolman who all gained 7 A* grades and Rhiannon Barnby, Sara Bakusova and Tim Fung who all achieved 6 A* grades plus a number of other A grades. In addition Theo Morris, Becky Jenkins, Jamie Clark, Emily Gray and Ellie Taylor all gained 5 A*. Many others achieved multiple A* and A grades and over half of the students attained at least one A* and A grades which is an outstanding outcome. It is likely that once the National data is released Sponne will once again be in the top 10% of schools in the country.
Executive Headteacher Dr Jamie Clarke said: “These are really outstanding results and we are all tremendously proud of all of our students who have done so well. What is particularly encouraging is that no matter what the starting point of the student, when they arrive at Sponne, they all grasp the opportunities to make exceptional progress. Along with the high A level results last week, Sponne is maintaining the outstanding judgement made by Ofsted in 2012. Well done to all our students and their teachers in preparing them for their exams”.
