Almost two-thirds of Piggott School pupils achieve A*-B A Level grades


A TWYFORD school saw almost two-thirds of its pupils obtain A* to B grades, and almost nine in 10 achieved A*-C. 

Piggott School headteacher Derren Gray said he was pleased to be able to announce the “outstanding” set of results. 

He said: “Our students and staff work exceptionally hard and this has once again been shown in each of our academic, applied general and technical results”.

The Piggott’s A level pass rate was over 99% with a record-breaking 64% of Year 13 A level results graded at A*-B and 87% graded A*-C. The average point score per A level entry was 39 points using the new QCA system.

Its Vocational Level 3 pass rate for Applied General qualifications was 99%, with Distinction star to Merit being 96%. For Technical subject entry, every student passed the course, with 83% of grades at the highest grade, Distinction Star.

Mr Gray added: “This continues to show our school as a centre of excellence for academic, applied general and technical learning.

“I wish all our students the very best for their future and thank all the teaching and support staff for their continued dedication and professionalism.”

Among those students celebrating was Aimee Mortimer, who is going to study medicine at Exeter. She said that she was impressed by the university when we went there for an open day and is planning to join a surfing club. 

Josie Hearn will go to Lincoln University to study forensic chemistry, saying that she really like a taster course she took part in and that she had been “pleasantly surprised by her grades”. 

And Tom Sabberton-Coe is off to the University of East Anglia in Norwich to read psychology.

He says that he chose the course there as it was “one of the better ones”. 

“I’ve really enjoyed my time at the Piggott,” he added. “I’m very happy and pleasantly surprised by my grades.”
