We said that 2020 was a year like no other but 2021 has offered continued challenges for this Year 13 cohort, with lockdowns and online learning adding additional pressure to an already challenging experience. The students of Mascalls 6th Form have been outstanding and impressed with their mature attitude and application to their studies. The grades achieved represent months of hard work and showcase the talent that we have in such a broad range of subjects.
The percentage of students attaining A*-C grades is up, with 85% achieved, as is the A*-B category, with 55%. The VA for Academic A-Levels is +0.42 and for Applied General it is +1.24. With an Average Grade of a B-, we are thrilled with each student’s individual performance, and have thoroughly enjoyed today’s celebrations with students and parents in school.
We are also delighted that 100% of UCAS applicants achieved places and that many more now have confirmed placements with companies to complete apprenticeships. These Mascalls Alumni will serve as an important reminder to the students in the years below as to what can be achieved even in a time of tremendous challenge, they have shown resilience and fortitude which will ensure continued future success.
