Appleton College students thrive again!

“Appleton College students have once again performed strongly in their A levels exams this year.” says Tim Long, the Principal. “There were some exceptional individual achievements and I would like to congratulate all students on their success in this year’s exams.”

For example, Sam Bealing capped an amazing career at Bridgewater and Appleton College with a clean sweep of A* grades- six in total, securing his place at Cambridge University. Bethan Lukey secured three A* grades and a further two A grades overall. Meanwhile Jack Baker gained two A*s and a further two A grades and one B grade. Eleanor Palmer was awarded an A* and a further three A grades with Kate Bottomley and Brett Sibert enjoying similar success with a total of three A grades and one B grade overall . Sarah Shrewsbury-Gee and Abi Wilkinson both gained two A grades and two B grades whilst Emily Gibbins received an A* and two A grades. The Performing Arts remain a strength and congratulations also go to Fin Bailey and Macy Fannon for securing two Double Distinctions stars each in this area.

Some subjects notable for the strength of their performance this year included French and Further Maths where all students achieved an A* or A grade. Meanwhile, 83% of Biology students achieved an A*-B grade whilst Sociology enjoyed particular success with 88% of students gaining an A*-B grade. Overall 7% of all entries were awarded the top grade of an A*.

Theo Lambrianides, Assistant Headteacher in charge of Appleton College was delighted: “I am so proud of this year group and what they have achieved. Ever since they joined the sixth form I have been impressed by their commitment and hard work. They have been a pleasure to work with and I am delighted that almost every student has achieved either a university place of their choice or secured other work related opportunities. On behalf of all the staff here it just remains for me to wish each and every one of our students all the best in the future- I’m sure they will go from strength to strength.”
