Excellent A Level Results at The Bishop Wand Sixth Form

Students have achieved outstanding academic outcomes at The Bishop Wand Church of England Sixth Form and are celebrating their success following the release of some excellent A Level examination results.  With 44% of all grades falling in the A*-B category an 11% increase on last year this is an excellent year for the students and staff at the Bishop Wand Church of England School

The Headteacher, Mr Daniel Aldridge, welcomed the results and said: “I am thrilled by these results and the achievements of the students at the school. To achieve this number of A*-B grade is no accident and is down to the high quality of teaching and learning and the dedication of every student and teacher at the school.

Ellie Chipps is the first student in my time as Headteacher of the school to achieve a place at Cambridge and I would like to congratulate her on her achievement. She is a role model to so many of our aspiring academics and I am sure will inspire future students to follow in her footsteps.

I am extremely proud of all our student’s results and the university places they have achieved and credit should be given to all our students as well as the teaching and support staff who worked with the students over the course of the last two years. I wish all our students every success in the future”.
