Year 13 celebrate another successful results day

The Wellington Academy are delighted to report on the fantastic outcomes of our Sixth Form students. We are extremely proud of the students’ hard work and dedication over the last two years and the way they have responded in these uncertain times. The TWA6th students will now be moving on to a range of fantastic opportunities in a variety of areas.

In line with previous years, we have just under 70% of our students moving on to University, with an array of courses and destinations selected (including a high percentage of Russell Group). There are also several students taking up apprenticeships with the rest of the cohort moving into full time work or taking a Gap year to decide which Path to take next.

Although proud of all of our students’ outcomes, especially in this challenging climate some notable results are listed below;

Matthias A*D*D* (Business Management with Marketing at University of Brighton)

Ariana A*A*AA (English Literature at University of Winchester)

Aidan A*A*A (Mathematics at University of Bath)

Pablo A*A*A (Politics, Philosophy and Economics at University of Manchester)

Shannon A*D*A (Law at University of Liverpool)

Ben D*D*D (Sport Management and Coaching at University of Bath)

Billy A*AAA (Mechanical Engineering at University of Southampton)

This year, following the cancellation of exams, grades were awarded through a process of teacher assessed grades, against a national standard and approved and awarded by the exam boards. The government is not publishing performance data for any schools or colleges this year due to the varying impact of the pandemic.

Dave Bissington, Head of 6th Form said “This is the tenth Results day I have now been a part of at the Wellington Academy and the one I am proudest of. The students have faced many challenges over their two years and have shown phenomenal resilience and determination to complete their courses to such a high standard. The range of destinations demonstrates that students really can move into any field they set their heart on and I know all students are well equipped for whatever challenges may come their way moving forward.”

Steven Paddock, Headteacher said: “The resilience shown by our students and the professionalism of our staff makes me extremely proud of our academy. In a tough year, the students and staff have embodied all aspects of the academy’s ethos and values. I wish all students the very, very best for whatever their future holds."
