Ashton on Mersey is proud to report that our Sixth Form students have achieved examination results which reflect the commitment and dedication that they have shown throughout the past two years. Despite recent (and ongoing) national uncertainty around all qualifications and the subsequent outcomes, students have been awarded a set of grades across all of Ashton on Mersey’s BTEC and A-Level subjects that are unquestionably outstanding once more.
Students and parents should be delighted that the process of awarding centre assessed grades was robust. It is pleasing and reassuring that the judgements and estimates of our teachers have been validated and that students have been rewarded for all of their hard work.
Headlines include the fact that over 90% of students achieved 3 Distinctions (D/D/D+) or above whilst over a quarter of students achieved the highest possible grades of 3 Distinction* (D/D/D*). There were many individual success stories across our BTEC Level 3 courses in IT, Construction, Sport and Business Studies whilst 100% of students achieved A*-C in the A – Level of Accountancy with 25% achieving a grade A.
These grades will ensure that all of our students have the greatest possible chance of securing their chosen next steps including University, Higher Apprenticeships and a range of employment pathways.
