This year’s Post-16 exam results at Abbeywood Community School saw almost one-third of all grades awarded being at A*-B, with 15 percent in the top A*-A band. The overall pass rate was 96 percent.

All students on the IT and business courses achieved the top grade. Additionally, art, photography, media, physics and the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) all achieved above national expectation for every single student on these courses.

As always, many students are off to study a wide range of undergraduate courses, including law, philosophy, criminology, geography, journalism, nursing, engineering, sociology, psychology, politics, dentistry, computing and business.

Other students have taken up high-quality apprenticeships, moved directly into employment or are undertaking voluntary work or travelling the world during a gap year.

Top performers highlighted by the school include:

  • Olivia Jadeja who achieved 4As (biology, chemistry, psychology & EPQ) and is going to study medicine at Exeter University
  • Lauren Brenton who achieved 3As (art, English language & sociology) and is taking up an apprenticeship at a prestigious law firm
