A-Level Results Day

There was much joy and plenty of celebrating at Helsby High School this morning as Year 13 students collected their A-Level and Vocational Qualification examination results. Despite all the challenges presented by the pandemic over the last two years, the students have shown incredible maturity and resilience and were rewarded with very well-deserved success when they opened their envelopes to discover their exam results. As a result of all their hard work and their levels of performance on their Sixth Form courses, students have been able to progress on to the next stage of their lives, whether it be university courses, apprenticeships or directly into employment.

Headteacher, Martin Hill said: “Despite the circumstances, as a cohort they have done wonderfully well, meeting their challenging targets by making fantastic progress. To achieve an overall pass-rate of 98%, with over a quarter of all grades at A* or A, is an outstanding achievement, particularly for a state school Sixth Form. They fully deserve their success and we wish them well as they now move on from our Sixth Form to their chosen destinations.”

Current Director of Sixth Form, Kirsty Lindop commented: “We are so proud of how our students have managed their studies and supported each other during their time in the Sixth Form, which even included a term learning ‘remotely’ at home in the spring of 2021. They should be very proud of their achievements and I know that all of their teachers would want to join me in wishing each and every one of them all the very best for the future.”

In recent years Helsby High School’s Sixth Form has consistently been one of the highest-performing Sixth Forms in the area and this high level of performance has certainly continued in 2022, with students achieving impressively across the full range of 30 A-Level and Vocational Qualification courses on offer. Amongst many very impressive individual performances were Erynn Maddock (who achieved 4 A* grades), Robert Jones (3 A* grades), Connor Ross (3 A*-equivalent grades), Paige Kirkman (the equivalent of 2 A* and 1 A grades) and Megan Pearson (2 A* and 1 A grades). Robert is going on to study Biochemistry at the University of Nottingham, Megan is going to the University of York to study Pyschology and Paige will be studying Occupational Therapy at the University of Salford.
