Abbeywood Community School has seen a “slight dip” in headline A-level result figures compared with previous years (in line with what is being reported nationally), but has seen “huge” successes in BTEC and vocational outcomes in particular, says Executive Headteacher Dave Baker.

All students who were seeking places on higher education courses gained places and a number of others have secured apprenticeships with prestigious organisations. The average points score per entry was 187 (216 last year) and average total points score was 669 (728 last year).

Significant individual successes highlighted by Mr Baker are:
