Students and staff at Flixton Girls School Sixth Form are celebrating A Level and BTEC results this year in our 90th anniversary year.
With a return to pre pandemic standards in grading we are pleased that a record number of students obtained their first choice destination post 18 with over half the cohort accepting their first choice.
We are pleased our pass rate was in line with our pre pandemic trend at A Level at 96%.
Students continue to succeed at A Level at FGS Sixth Form with 77% of courses on offer achieving 100% pass rates at A Level. Art & Photography continues with its strong record of 100% A*-C pass rate. A number of students completed the EPQ qualification and achieved strong results with over 34% achieving an A*A grade despite the national trend of top grades declining. Students also achieved 83 % A*-C in this qualification with 100% of students achieving A*-D grades.
- Gabby Murray was one of our top performing student who achieved A*AA in her three A Level subjects Sociology, Philosophy and Business Studies and is looking forward to studying Sociology at the University of Manchester this year
- Sheena Harrison achieved straight A’s in her studies and is exploring her post 18 options following this success
- Aimee Slater achieved straight B grades in her study of Business, Geography and Politics and looks forward to studying Business Management at Manchester Metropolitan University
- Emily Shenton was pleased with her grades of ABC in Photography, English Literature and Media Studies.
A number of students are progressing into the health profession with Molly Hart excited to study Nursing this September at Manchester Metropolitan University. Psychology and Business studies continue to be popular subjects at undergraduate level with a high proportion of students choosing this route.
Head of Sixth Form Nyla McKenna said:
“I’m so proud of the dedication and commitment demonstrated by everyone involved to achieve these results. I’ve seen the amount of work that both students and staff have put in over the last two years and beyond, and they really do deserve this success”.
Danielle Tedford, Acting Headteacher commented:
“It has been a privilege to watch our Sixth Form grow over the years in terms of numbers of students, courses and results. I wish our outgoing students every happiness in the next phase of their lives, whether that be at university, in apprenticeships or in paid employment and look forward to seeing what they achieve in the future. We look forward to many more students signing up for Sixth Form this coming September.
FGS Sixth Form is a well-established education provision based at Flixton Girls School in partnership with Trafford College. We have secured yet another set of excellent results, despite the adverse circumstances, which demonstrates the quality of our post-16 provision. Our community can be confident in our ability to maximise academic outcomes and eradicate inequality to enable our young people to move on to their first-choice destinations.”
