New Mills School were celebrating today as their students received their best A-level results in five years, according to staff.
Deputy head John Kuczaj described this year’s sixth formers’ results as “outstanding”, as almost a fifth of all A- level results were A* or A grades and the overall pass rate at the Church Lane school was 95%. they represent the school’s best A’ Level results in recent years.
He said: “We’re absolutely thrilled. Every student who applied for a university place has got one.”
Head teacher Jesse Elms at the business and enterprise college said he was “delighted”, adding: “An awful lot of hard work goes into achieving results like these, both from the students and the staff, not to mention the support of parents over the past two years.
“These grades are well deserved and hard earned, many of them spectacularly so with almost half of all grades awarded being at A*-B.”
Individually, star pupil Mollie Trueman secured her place to read natural sciences at Cambridge University by achieving four A* grades in mathematics, further mathematics, physics and chemistry.
Other outstanding performers included Sally Allmark and Amy Edwards who each achieved two A* grades and one A grade and Rowan Jones who achieved three A grades.
Head of sixth form Nick Munn said: “I’m really pleased that all of our students got on the courses that they wanted and I have every confidence they will go on to fulfil their dreams and aspirations. Wonderful days like these remind me of the reasons I became a teacher.”
