A-level results August 2018

Homewood School & Sixth Form Centre students and staff are celebrating excellent A-level results again this year – the best in their recent history. This year, the percentage of academic A-level grades at A*-B has risen to 32% and the percentage at A*-C has risen to 59%. The overall pass rate for all Level 3 qualifications is 96%. As in previous years, virtually all students leaving Homewood have a confirmed place at University, College or in employment with training.

Top performing subjects were Graphics & Drama in which all students achieved a grade B or above along with Textiles, Fine Art and Religious Studies in which all students achieved a Grade C or above. Results were also particularly strong in Biology, Maths, Business Studies, Dance, Film Studies, History, Travel & Tourism and Music.

Homewood School continues to offer the full range of Level 3 qualifications, embracing both academic and applied qualifications, and sustaining strong provision across all subject areas, including the Arts. Mrs Lees, Principal, said “Despite well publicised economic pressures on schools, we have made a proactive decision to sustain the very wide curriculum offer which is a hallmark of Homewood.  These results show that students thrive when given the opportunity to study subjects which interest and excite them. I am very pleased to see how well students have risen to the increased challenge of both academic and applied qualifications and I congratulate them all on their very well deserved success.”

In this year’s results there were many outstanding performances from individual students.
