EXAMINATION RESULTS IN 2018
The Beacon Sixth Form students achieved the best A Level results the school has seen for many years. Collectively, they made significant increases in the numbers of top grades, with four students achieving the highest A* Grade and with 17% of exams being awarded A*/A grades. This means that several of our students can access the top universities in the country. For example, Daisy will go on to read medicine at Manchester University and three students will read Maths at Russell Group Universities.
39% of grades were within the A*- B range, another increase in our upward trend. A*-C was 63%, another strong performance. At BTEC level, there was a continued 100% pass rate, with greater numbers of Distinctions and Merits than in previous years.
