Record-breaking A-Level results for Seevic College students
Thursday, 14 August 2014
Students at Seevic College have achieved the College’s best ever A-Level pass rate.
This was just one of a number of record-breaking results for the College following a range of new strategies introduced by Principal Nick Spenceley – including the introduction of a learning values contract for students and parents.
Seevic College’s A-Level class of 2014 achieved:
- Best ever A2 pass rate – 98%
- Best ever AS results – well above the national average
- 100% pass rate on 38 AS and A2 courses
- Pass rates for all AS Science subjects above the national average
- A* - B Grades 10% above the national average in 12 subjects: AS English Language & Literature, AS Biology, AS Physics, AS French, AS Communication & Culture, AS Dance, AS Fine Art, AS & A2 Photography, AS & A2 Applied Science and A2 Geology.
Principal Nick Spenceley said: “I would like to thank all students and staff at the College who have played their part in a year of hard work and fantastic success at Seevic. I’m incredibly pleased that the measures introduced since I arrived at the College in January 2013 have seen such a significant impact at the end of my first full year as Principal.
"These results build on our strong sixth-form heritage and reflect the impact of new strategies such as the learning values contract for students and parents and relentless monitoring of student performance.”
18-year-old Lauren Plumley, who previously attended The Appleton School, achieved Grade A in Law, Grade A In Psychology and Grade B in Maths.
She said: "My Tutors at the College have helped me to achieve my best. Getting my results today is my favourite memory of my time at Seevic. The whole College experience has been helpful and rewarding."
Lauren now plans to study Law at The University of Warwick.
18-year-old Maria Edwards, who previously attended The Deanes School, achieved Grade A in History, Grade A in Psychology and Grade B in English Literature.
She said: "My experience at Seevic has been so worthwhile and successful. I've gained a lot of independence. My Tutors gave me the extra support I needed to achieve my grades."
Maria now plans to study History at Nottingham University.
