A Level triumph for St Mark’s
Education: Secondary / Thu 15th Aug 2013 am31 11:10am
STUDENTS and staff at St Mark’s West Essex Catholic School are today celebrating another set of excellent A level results, with students once again exceeding previous record breaking results and many going on to universities, often the first in their family.
Another superb pass rate was achieved with 99% of all A level examinations passed and 70% with grades A*- C (in 2012 the figure was 65%).
A delighted Headteacher, Elaine Heaphy, congratulated both students and staff.
“In July 2013 we were judged to be ‘Good with Outstanding features’ by Ofsted, and these excellent results are just a confirmation of this judgement. I am delighted for the students, they should be proud of their achievements and I wish them all the best for their future endeavours. Certainly, I would like to put on record my thanks to students, staff and parents for what was an exemplary team effort.
Our Sixth Form draws from all the other schools in Harlow and I congratulate these schools for their work in successfully getting these students through GCSE studies and giving them the grounding for A Level study. I am sure that they will share in this success. We have a number of exciting developments for our Sixth Form in the coming months and I look forward to welcoming the ‘new’ Year 12 cohort in September”
