Languages are the key to the future for Gabby Lindley, having secured a place at Exeter to read Spanish with International Relations, thanks to her A* in Spanish and Maths and an A in French.  She said, “I am so happy with my grades, it was hard work but thanks to my teachers I have achieved what I needed.”

Alongside the successes of A Levels, the BTEC Sport students had something to celebrate with two students achieving D* (distinctinction stars) across all three assessments.  Matilda Swift who as the birthday girl had much to cheer about, said, “Doing the BTEC was definitely the best choice, I just couldn’t do exams.  I am thrilled as I am going to Portsmouth to study sports development, longterm I want to be a PE teacher.”

Andy Giles, Head of Sixth Form, commented,

“It was magical to see the joy of the students and parents as they opened their results and realised they had achieved their future ambitions.  These are an outstanding set of results that are above the national average and therefore a great credit to the hard work of all.”

James Wilding, Academic Principal added,

“These are exciting times at Claires Court for our students; two are off to Oxford, two more winning scholarships to the States, and many others achieving entry to such great Universities in the UK.  I am delighted that the really hard work of both students and staff have been rewarded so well, recording our best results in the school’s History. Of course, it’s never just about the grades; Claires Court Sixth Form graduates have developed a really impressive set of soft skills alongside their academic studies, those required by employers and highlighted by the government as well, the ability to lead, to support and respect for others, they collaborate well and take responsibility for their own actions. These are the real advantages they have earned through their hard work and disciplined studies, personality characteristics that will serve them long into the future.”
