Sixth Form Success

We are celebrating the hard work and achievements of our students here at The Beacon School.  With over 80% of A Level grades at A*-C,  Georgie Barroll Brown (Head of Sixth Form) said that “we are so proud of the students’ achievements, particularly considering the challenging nature of the last academic year.  We are delighted to see so many securing the universities and apprenticeships of their choice, due to their relentless hard work and determination”.

Interviews with some of our students:

Evie MacKenzie achieved four A* Grades in Biology, Chemistry, Maths and Extended Project Qualification and plans to study Biological and Medicinal Chemistry at Exeter University.  Evie said “I am very glad that my grades represent the hard work I put in during such a challenging year; I feel very grateful for the support from my teachers all the way through the pandemic”.

Ivan Newsome, one of our Head Students, achieved an A in Geography, B in PE and a Distinction in Media. Ivan said “it’s been a difficult year but I feel like our hard work has really paid off; I am going to Bath to study Sports Coaching and Management”. 

Callum Bunt achieved an A* in Biology, A in Psychology and an A in PE and plans to go to Plymouth to study Physiotherapy.  Callum said “I am really pleased with my results; this year has been hard due to Covid and I am relieved it hasn’t negatively impacted my grades”. 

James Crawford achieved an A in Geography, B in Chemistry and a Distinction in Public Services.  James said “I feel happy and relieved to have achieved these results given the circumstances; considering the lockdowns, Covid testing and isolation periods it is a huge relief. I plan to take a year out to earn some money and get some life experience and then study Geology and Physical Geography at Southampton.”

Katie Cox achieved an A* in Law, an A in politics and a B in Biology and said “I’m really pleased I got into the University of my choice which is Chichester to study Politics”.

Abby Feely achieved an A* in Psychology, A in English Literature and Language and a B in History; she plans to study Psychology at Chichester.  Abby said “I am really relieved and proud that I have managed to get these grades after so many lockdowns”

Keith Batchelor (Headteacher) said that "students and staff have shown such tenacity over the last year and a huge amount of hard work has gone into achieving a set of wonderful results of which we are immensely proud."
