The publication of A-level results at Bishop Heber High School is once again a cause for celebration amongst students, staff and parents, with half of all grades awarded being A*-B and an overall pass rate of 99%. Many students will now be taking up their places at Universities across the country or in apprenticeship schemes, while others will be entering paid employment or taking exciting GAP years. Performance across all subjects was strong, but of particular note are English Literature, Further Maths, Sociology and Spanish, where over 75% of grades achieved were A*-B. Also noteworthy is the achievement of the A* grade in some subjects with around 40% of students studying Art and Textiles, French and Further Maths achieving this coveted grade, once again reinforcing Bishop Heber’s reputation as one of the County’s best Sixth Forms. The performance of the following students is particularly noteworthy. Henry Delf-Rowlandson (Tilston) achieved an impressive four A* grades and will be taking up his place at Manchester University to study Mechatronics Engineering and Rebecca Ralph (Whitchurch) will be studying Maths at Lancaster having achieved three A* and two A grades. A number of students are heading for Durham University after their impressive results; Ciaran O’Shea (Malpas) will be studying General Engineering having achieved two A* and two A grades, Bethan Cornforth (Chorlton) will study Modern Languages having achieved two A* and an A grade, and Adam David (Marbury) who, with four A grades, is set to read Politics. Other students who achieved straight A*/A grades in their chosen subjects are Harry Young (Tilston) who will study Cellular and Molecular Medicine at Bristol (A* plus three A grades), Sam Tute (Tilston) who will also study at Bristol achieving three A grades to take up his place to study Neuroscience, Amy Farr (Malpas) who will study Biology at Nottingham after achieving four A grades, Juliet Heaton (Worthenbury) will study Chemistry at Cardiff having achieved A*AA grades and Anna Roseblade (Farndon) who with one A* and two A grades will study Fashion Design and Development at the University of the Arts London. Head Boy, James Walley (Macefen) will be taking up his place to read Geography at Manchester having achieved three A grades and Head Girl, Lucy Earl (Threapwood) will study Biomedical Science at Newcastle having achieved ABB in her exams. Both students are taking GAP years before embarking on their chosen courses. Other successes include Ryan Chan (Wrexham) achieving A*AB grades who will take up his place to study History at Leeds, Hannah Crump (Crewe-by-Farndon) who achieved three A and two B grades and will study Chemistry at York, David Marlow (Whitchurch) who will be reading Computer Science at Birmingham after achieving AAAB grades and Jack Payne Gill (Tattenhall) who is planning to study Geography at Durham having achieved two A and two B grades. Also of note are Sam Scott (Shocklach) who has a place at Cardiff to follow a course in Operating Department Practice, Isabelle Smith (Nomansheath) who will be taking up her place on the Light Project at Chester University and Beth Ludden (Farndon), James Partington (Bowling Bank) and Alexander Jenkin (Chorlton) who will be completing Art Foundation Courses. Students who have alternative plans include Ben Ellwood (Rossett) who has secured an apprenticeship with Jaguar Land Rover and Josh Harding (Farndon) who has a Horticulture Apprenticeship. The Headteacher, David Curry was delighted and commented: “We are all extremely pleased with the A-level results published today. The very high quality of education and standards set at Bishop Heber High School are clearly evident yet again from this year’s A-level results. This year’s Upper Sixth is the largest cohort in the School’s history and reflects what is special about this School and Sixth Form, that is: every student is supported and encouraged to be the best they can be! The Upper Sixth students collectively sat over 330 examinations this Summer Term. The fact that half of the grades were an A*, A or B is a true reflection of how hard the students have worked with the support and direction of their teachers and families during their time in the Sixth Form. I would like to take this opportunity on behalf of the Staff and Governors at Heber to wish all ‘Leavers’ our best wishes for the future.” The Head of Sixth Form, Gemma Dodd said that she was delighted to once again be congratulating Bishop Heber students on their excellent exam results and wished them luck for the future whatever direction it might take them. “It is testament to the hard work and commitment of all involved that students are able to achieve their aspirations and dreams.”
