A Level Results(Posted on 13/08/20)
Today over 80 of our Year 13 A level students received their results from The Maelor Sixth in unusual circumstances. Following the cancelation of their exams the school has submitted grades for their subjects and these have been moderated nationally by the exam boards.
Headteacher Simon Ellis commented “There already has been, and will be, plenty of discussion about the way in which grades have been calculated this year. What I do know is that this year group have proved themselves to be dedicated, hardworking and resilient in very challenging circumstances. Whether they have been with us for the past seven years or joined from another secondary school at 16, their approach to their studies means that they deserve to achieve the very best grades. The results are yet again outstanding and reflect the sixth forms performance over the past five years. We will be following their careers closely as they progress either through university, training or employment and I know their approach to the recent situation has made them adaptable as well as academically strong.”
Director of 6th Form Mrs Penny Ellwood said “I am delighted with what this year group have achieved, and to have done it in these circumstances is remarkable. We will continue to support them to access their preferred university or apprenticeship over the next few weeks. They deserve to be congratulated and know that despite their examinations being cancelled, they have earned every grade awarded. I look forward to the day that we can celebrate together at our rearranged prom.”
