98% Pass Rate for Patchway Community SchoolAugust 14th, 2020
We are delighted to share this year’s successes which include 41% of all academic grades awarded at A*-B grade and an overall pass rate of 98%.
These are fantastic outcomes for our students, and many now have the high grades they need to get into the university degree courses of their choice.
Subject highlights include:
• 75% A*-B grades in Fine Art
• 83% A*-C grades in Biology, 78% in English Literature, and 86% in Photography
• 60% A*-C grades in Maths (all students achieving at or above their target grade)
• 100% Distinction*/distinction in Sport
Top achievers (to name a few!):
• Joel Cottrell (pictured right) who achieved A* A* A in Biology, Chemistry and Mathematics respectively, and an A in his Extended Project. Joel is going on to study Chemistry at Bristol University. He is the first in his family to go to university and wins our sixth form highest attainment award. 100% attendance since joining the school in year 7 has certainly helped Joel to achieve these outstanding grades, but we are not surprised by his success Joel is a student who goes the extra mile and he has achieved these high academic outcomes while volunteering throughout his sixth form at a dementia care home.
