Logridge Towers pupils celebrate their A level results

The head teacher at Longridge Towers School says A level results achieved this summer are a testament to the hard work of the sixth form team.

The school is delighted with the results of its upper sixth candidates, who received their grades on Thursday.

From all the exams taken, 20 per cent were passed at A* or A grades, and 65 percent were passed with grades A–C.

The majority of the students will be attending their first choice universities, which include places at Newcastle, York, Leeds, London and Edinburgh.

Several students have decided to take a gap year and some have now entered straight into employment.

Head boy Ben Grindell has decided to study management at York University, while head girl Michelle Ali has opted to study computer science at Newcastle University.

Head teacher Tim Manning congratulated all the school’s candidates on their achievements, and wished them well in their future studies and careers.

“As a non-selective school we consistently send many students to Russell Group universities, but also we still encourage applications to other institutions which have the right courses on offer,” Mr Manning said.

“The high success rate of students attending their university of choice is testament to the hard work of the sixth form tutor team, ensuring that all applications are well prepared from the initial choices through to the writing of the personal statement.”

He added: “The small size of the sixth form allows us to spend a great deal of time with each individual to make sure it is right.”
