A-LEVEL RESULTS DAY – THURSDAY 15TH AUGUST 2019
STUDENTS CELEBRATE ANOTHER YEAR OF STRONG RESULTS
St Thomas Aquinas students are again celebrating success in today’s A-Level results, marking another year of strong academic and pastoral achievements.
Students made significant progress from their GCSE results to achieve outstanding post 16 results last year. The positive trend has been maintained. A-Level results have continued to improve at St Thomas Aquinas and these are the best results since 2012.
The overall pass rate was 97%. The number of students achieving grades A* to B was an impressive 53% and the number of A* and A grades was an amazing 30%. This is particularly pleasing as nationally the number of top grades for A-levels have fallen to their lowest level in more than a decade following the introduction of new tougher exams. As a result, overall progress of students at Aquinas will be in the top 25% of all schools and colleges nationally.
We are delighted that the futures that our students dreamed of can now be realised with virtually all of our students moving on to their destinations of choice. We have three students progressing to study Medicine and a number of students progressing to Russell Group universities.
These results reflect the diligence and determination of so many in our community over the last seven years. Mrs Davies, Head of Year 13, said "I am very proud of all of the students. Their hard work has paid off. I wish them all the best in their first ventures".
We are absolutely thrilled for our students, who with the support of dedicated staff and their families, have achieved these excellent results.
GCSE RESULTS DAY - THURSDAY 22ND AUGUST 2019
STACS STUDENTS DELIGHTED AS THEY EXCEL IN NEW GCSEs
Building on the superb A level results last week, GCSE results improved again this year at St Thomas Aquinas Catholic School for the third consecutive year.
Coming against the backdrop of more demanding qualifications, this represents a significant achievement. As a result, there were plenty of happy reactions as students collected their GCSE results.
The number of students achieving a grade 4 or above in English and Maths was 67% and the number 5 or above was 43%.
The results are a tremendous testament to the work of all staff, parents and most importantly our wonderful students.
