A-level results August 2019

Homewood School & Sixth Form Centre students and staff are celebrating excellent A-level and Level 3 Applied results again this year, a further improvement on previous years and confirming what is now an established trend of high performance in the 6th form at Homewood.  This year, the percentage of A-level grades at A*-B is 35% and the percentage at A*-C is 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 A-level in which 89% of students achieved an A or A* grade, Level 3 Music in which all students achieved a Distinction or Distinction* and Travel and Tourism in which 75% of students achieved Distinction*. Results were also particularly strong in Maths, Business Studies, Media and Film Studies, Health and Social Care and History. Outcomes in the International Baccalaureate Career Related Programme (IBCP) were also very good.  This internationally recognised qualification is now embedded within Homewood’s broad curriculum provision in the 6th form which embraces both academic and applied courses.

Mrs Lees, Principal, said “I feel very proud of our students who have risen to the challenge of the new two year A-level and reformed BTEC qualifications with resilience, hard work and determination. The results we see today are a testament to their efforts and to the skill and experience of the Homewood staff team.  Our students thrive on the varied curriculum we can offer and the range of destinations they access from Homewood is very diverse, reflecting their many different interests and ambitions.  I am delighted that this cohort of students is now ready to move on to their next steps with the qualifications, skills and experience they need to be successful.  I wish them all the very best for the future.”

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