Outstanding Achievement Yet Again

August 15th, 2013

Students at Old Swinford Hospital have again achieved outstanding results in A Level Examinations.  The pass rate was 98.8% of which 56.9% were at the top grades of A*, A or B.

Over a quarter of all grades were A* or A.   More than 7% of all grades were at A*, representing students who achieved over 90% in exams. 

Director of Sixth Form Dr Richard Heaton said  “We are yet again delighted by the fantastic achievements of our hard working students and their dedicated teachers.  Our high pass rate and the proportion of top grades are a measure of the high levels of motivation of our students and the strong guidance they receive in their academic studies. These results will see almost all of our students straight off to University, achieving a place at their first choice institution.”

15 students (12%) achieved 3 or more A* or A grades, including the following:

Jessica Frost (A*A*A*A*) from Kingswinford will study Medicine and Ellie Fradgley (A*A*AA) from Kingswinford will study Physics at the University of Birmingham.

Michael Hudson (A*A*A*A) from Withymoor will study Physics at the University of Warwick.

Danyal Akarca (A*A*A) from Kingswinford will study Medicine at the University of Southampton.


7 students will be studying medicine and many others will be attending the UK’s top Universities.
