Results Day was one of celebration as we said a fond farewell to our Year 13 leavers.
All students had their university places confirmed and the delight on the student’s faces was a sight to behold.
2013 is another record breaking results year. We are delighted with our almost perfect 99% A Level pass rate as well as our 100% pass rate for all vocational programmes.
We are also very proud of our record breaking AS results which will set our students up for a very exciting and successful final year in Sixth Form. We have even seen a number of students successfully completing full A Level programmes a year earlier than planned. This includes a trio of our Year 12 girls who all obtained A grades in A2 Mathematics.
We are particularly proud of the increases we have seen in A-B grades and our A-C percentage has increased to 74% at A Level.
All credit must go to our students who are professional, dedicated and have an outstanding commitment to their Sixth Form careers and aspirations further ahead.
On behalf of all of the Sixth Form team at Archbishop Beck I would like to say a huge well done to our students. The staff are immensely proud of you and will ensure that we offer all the support and guidance necessary to enable you to fulfil your ambitions whilst at Archbishop Beck.
A city school today said treating students like adults had helped it take its place among Merseyside's top A-level performers...
...The success at Walton secondary Archbishop Beck, which managed a near perfect 99% pass rate, came as schools across Merseyside toasted another bumper set of results...
...Head of Sixth Form Peter Lynch said encouraging students to lead by example continued to pay off...
...He said: "We treat the students like adults and encourage independent learning as students need to conduct their own research and motivate themselves."
I never thought about going into the sixth form but I'm glad I did. The teachers are great and really help you do your best to succeed.
Provision for students' care, guidance and support is outstanding.
The impact of the school's specialisms can be seen in the excellence of sixth form results in physical education, ICT and business studies.
