Hawthorn High School – A Level Results Day 2018
Hawthorn High School sixth-form students and their teachers are celebrating another outstanding set of A Level results. Performance was strong across a wide spectrum of subjects and students entered for the graded Welsh Baccalaureate achieved excellent results with 100% of entries achieving a Grade C or above. Results for A and A* performance were particularly strong this year.
Almost all students have earned a place at their chosen Universities but especially worthy of note amongst many outstanding performances were those of Clara Jenkins who achieved 2 A* and 2 A Grades and secured a place at Oxford to study Law; Atiah Akhtar who achieved 3 A and a B Grade and goes on to study Law in Cardiff; Katie Waits achieved 2 A* and 2 A and will be studying English in Cardiff; Calista Davies with 3 A and a B secured an unconditional offer at Gloucester to study Performing Arts joined by Casey Humphreys who achieved 2 A and 2 B. Further mentions include Adam Jefferis who will be reading Computing and Forensic Security at Bristol, Paige Jennings-Brooksby reading Police Science at USW and Annabel Sheppeard who goes on to study Sport and PE at Cardiff Met. The school would like to congratulate all Year 13 pupils and their parents on their academic achievements and wider contribution to the school community during the last two years.
Headteacher Jason Hicks said “We are very proud of the continuing success of our students in the Sixth Form and we are especially delighted this year that so many of them have achieved the results that they required to attend the Universities of their choice. This is testament to the hard work of students and staff alike over the duration of their studies. Sixth form students have a tremendous impact on the wider life of the school during their time with us and it is wonderful to see them celebrate their successes on results day. Our work within the Pontypridd Sixth Form partnership (especially with the University of South Wales) and very significant improvements at GCSE at the school in recent years leaves even more students well placed to follow in their footsteps.”
The school wishes all Year 13 students the very best for their future and is sure that they will return to tell us of their adventures when their studies permit. Applications for enrolment in the Sixth Form can be made when the school reopens in September.
