St Marks West Essex Catholic School celebrates A Level success

Education: Secondary / Thu 16th Aug 2018 at 01:59pm

STUDENTS and staff at St Mark’s West Essex Catholic School are today celebrating another great year, with students once again achieving excellent results, with many going on to universities, often the first in their family.

Another superb pass rate was achieved with 95% of all A level examinations passed and 60% with grades A*-C and 99% of students getting into a university / course of their choice.

A particular feature of these results is that all students, whatever their ability, have achieved well and made fantastic progress, with many overcoming difficult personal circumstances to do so.

To achieve these results in light of the recent government reforms which have seen examinations become more challenging and demanding, is testimony to the skill of our teachers, the work of the students and the success of our Sixth Form.

A delighted Headteacher, Elaine Heaphy, congratulated both students and staff.

“We are delighted for the students, they should be proud of their achievements and we 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 we would congratulate these schools for their work in successfully getting these students through GCSE studies and giving them the grounding for A Level study. We are sure that they will share in this success. We look forward to welcoming the ‘new’ Year 12 cohort in September”.
