A Level Results 2016

• Key measures generally used in performance tables:
ο A*/A - 22%
ο A*/B - 54%
ο A*/C - 82%
It has been another stellar set of results for Year 13 students at SPH School in Barnham. Once again students have surpassed all expectations, exceeding prior year results. Over 22% of all exams sat by SPH students were awarded either an A* or A grade; 54% A*-B and 82% A*-C.

Of particular note were Catherine Aldridge and Jess Carter who both gained 3 A* grades. Catherine is to study Mathematics at Oxford University and Jess, Engineering (Ship Science) at Southampton University. Other students to achieve 3 or more A´s included Ray Baquiran (Theology, Durham), Katie Dowell (Chemistry, Reading), Elizabeth Holmes (Music, Cardiff) and Dominic Neill (Mechanical Engineering, Southampton). There are a number of other students pursuing science and engineering degrees; subjects that the Government have been keen to prompt for the benefit of the British economy. These included Alexandra Towler, who will be studying Chemistry at Bangor University. Alexandra spent a challenging week at the U.S. Space and Rocket Centre earlier this year, having been selected from hundreds of applicants for their Leadership Academy. Alexandra experienced astronaut training, a realistic shuttle mission and rocket building. She hopes to pursue a career in this area. Daniel Newton-Young will study Aerospace Engineering at Liverpool University and Georgia Walsh, Genetics at Sussex University. There were a number of students who secured 2 A grades. These included Jessica Daley, Briony Eldridge, Charlie Finniear, Sam Heffernan, Monica Hetherington, Peter Hetherington, Freya Hind, Hope O´Grady, Elise Price, Isabella Samuels and Natalia Siemens.

Dave Carter, Headteacher, praised the efforts of the students saying, "After many years of hard work and weeks of waiting for their results, it is wonderful to witness our students celebrating results today. It is not just about those who get the top results. We are extremely proud of all our students, regardless of the grades they received. Being well qualified is important; being a good person is even more so. I am delighted that our students leave us so well equipped on both fronts and we wish them well in the future".

Leon Hogan, Head of Sixth Form, commented "We are an inclusive Sixth Form community and welcome all students from within SPH and those who come from other schools. We are delighted with the achievements of all our students; they have again risen to the challenge. We look forward to September and a new cohort arriving". Anyone wishing to join the Sixth Form at SPH is welcome to contact the school www.sphcs.co.uk with enrolment on Thursday 25 August.
