Mill Hill School has achieved record-breaking results in this year’s A-level and vocational A-level examinations.
A total of 43% of students achieved grades A* to B, of these 21% were A/A*, which is another record for the school in Ripley.
The results represent a major improvement over the last three years with 38% of students achieving A* to B grades last year and 30% in 2010.
Last year, 18.3% of students achieved A/A*grades.
In another record the average point score per student was 664 - up from 642 in 2011- and the average point score per entry was 204, compared to 187 last year.
Head teacher Sarah Graham said the results were a real testimony to the hard work of the 64 students and staff.
She said: “We are very pleased to announce this excellent set of results which shows we are continuing to build on the strong improving trend over the last three years.
“This was a very well motivated year group who worked well with staff.
“We focussed on motivation and all students had a personalised learning programme and a member of staff as a mentor –everyone worked very hard to achieve these results.”
Mrs Graham said that all students’ progress was tracked and monitored against their target grades and they were given regular feedback on how to improve.
She said: “The focus this year has been on developing independent learning, research and critical thinking skills, this has resulted in very good extended project results for students which will take them successfully on to the next stage of learning.”
