for a place
We are delighted with the public exam results achieved by every single one of our students. In 2017, our Year 13s achieved their best ever results with 18% of the results at A*, 41% at A/A* and 75% A*-B. All of our students applying to Higher Education achieved a place for the course of their choice, with 75% of those applying to university, achieving their first choice university place or Art Foundation course. This year, results were extra successful in English A-level (60% at A*) and EPQ AS-level (87% at A/A*). These top performing subjects can change from year to year, depending on the passions and interests of the cohort.
Not all of our students choose university as their next step after Sixth Form, and increasingly we are pleased to be supporting more GDST students in applying for Degree apprenticeships.
