Posted on: Tuesday 10th August 2021

A Level Results Day 2021 allowed students to reflect on their achievements in this highly unusual year and to receive well-deserved congratulations from their teachers and parents/carers. Mr O Flatley and Ms R Lewis, Heads of Year 13, had nothing but praise for the way in which their year group has dealt with the pandemic period. Mr Flatley said “the way in which the students have responded to all the obstacles and challenges put in their way over the two years of their course of A Level study has been nothing short of remarkable. Their teachers are very proud of them and they should be proud of themselves for the will to succeed they have consistently shown, this has translated into an exceptional set of results for this year group as well as learning many new skills throughout the period of online learning during school closures. Ms R Lewis said, “these results represent the students’ hard work over many months and years at Stanwell. They have been a wonderful year group throughout their time here and are great ambassadors for our school and a real credit to their families. They will be missed around school but we know that they will go on to great success and fulfilment in the next stages of their lives.

At A level, there were a very impressive 151 A* grades (24% of entry,) 51 % of all grades were A* or A, with 90 % of the year group achieving A* to C overall.  Furthermore, 210 students (93%) achieved the Advanced Skills Challenge Certificate as part of the Welsh Baccalaureate.  89 students (39%) achieved the equivalent of 3 A grades or better with 89% gaining 3 A* to C grades.

Mr T Brown, Headteacher, thanked the Year 13 cohort for their contribution to school life and wished them every success at university, in their gap years and in their apprenticeships and employment. There were many outstanding individual performances including, of course, our highest achievers of which 19 students achieved 4 A* grades or better. Four pupils secured places at Cambridge University or Oxford University.
