A-Level Results Day 2015 – Celebrating our 100% Academy pass rate!
13th August 2015
Staff and students at Richard Taunton Sixth Form College are delighted that the high standards achieved in 2014 have been maintained.
Gifted and talented students in our highly successful Sixth Form Academy have once again achieved a 100% pass rate.
At a time when the government has imposed tougher standards, students have achieved an overall pass rate of 98%, with over 70% of A-Level subjects achieving a 100% pass rate.
Almost two-thirds of students have gained A*-C grades, supporting progression to highly selective universities and industrial training programmes.
Achievement on vocational programmes is exceptional, with a 100% pass rate on Extended Diplomas (equivalent to 3 A-Levels).
Principal Alice Wrighton said:
I am always delighted at this time of year to see so many of our young people progressing confidently onto university and into the workplace, as a result of their hard work and the excellent preparation our staff provide. The high quality of our teaching and learning continues to be one of our greatest strengths, as demonstrated by these excellent results.
