“OUTSTANDING ADVANCED LEVEL RESULTS yet again!”
100% of students have achieved highly again at West Kirby Grammar School with every student gaining 3 or more qualifications. Boys and girls are going on to study courses ranging from Biochemistry, Economics, Medicine, Law, Engineering, Geography, Languages to Dentistry at top universities.
Headteacher, Alison Duffy said, “This is a huge achievement because the goal posts have been moved by the government and exam boards. Students have worked tremendously hard to gain these outstanding results. I am delighted with our students’ success. They and their teachers are to be commended for all of their efforts. They have worked hard and deserve these splendid grades. Congratulations to all!”
This year at West Kirby:
- 100% students gained 3 or more qualifications
- 68% of the grades were A*-B
- 90% of the grades awarded were A* - C
Our Cambridge Pre-University course - Global Perspectives, taken by the whole year group, was a huge success with 83% of students achieving Merits or Distinctions equivalent to B - A* and 100% pass rate. This achievement has, in some cases, helped secure or improve university places. I am also proud of some students who had to overcome personal issues or difficult circumstances to achieve highly. Congratulations to all.
