Sandbach Sixth Form: Level 3 Qualifications Press Release 2022

Following a busy year, our students are now looking forward to the next stage in their personal journey either at university, on a higher/degree level apprenticeship or in employment. Students have shown remarkable resilience; having dealt with lots of uncertainty resulting from the pandemic as well as the pressure associated with external examinations. Reflecting on this academic year, Headteacher Sarah Burns said “Staff and Governors would like to congratulate Sandbach School Sixth Form Students on the way that they have conducted themselves and to also thank parents for their continued support. The hard work that the students have demonstrated throughout the last 2 years has helped to ensure that students have coped well with significant disruption to their education and the longest ever exam series”

There have been many individual successes across the 2022 cohort. On receiving his results, our Head Boy, Joe Badger said:

“There was a fantastic atmosphere in school this morning, with so many students receiving the grades they wanted for university. After the stress of the last two years, it has been lovely to see everyone in such high spirits again. I am personally looking forward to studying History and Politics at the University of Birmingham next year. A huge congratulations to everyone collecting their results this morning, I wish you all the very best for the future”. With over 23% percent of students achieving the highest A*-A grades and over 55% achieving A*-B grades, it is no surprise that the vast majority of students that have applied to university have secured a place. A wide range of subjects are being studied at lots of locations, including; Georgina Sealey who will be reading Physics at the University of Exeter, Patrick Foo is off to study Maths at Kings College London and Tom Franks will be reading Computer Science at Lancaster. Joe Hodson and Regan Pendlebury have also been accepted onto degree level apprenticeships with Bentley.

Our most notable achievements include, Joe Badger, Luke Dean, Thomas Franks, Joe Hodson, Archie Hopton, Lewis Newton, Archie Pordes, Edward Proudlove, Georgina Sealey and Ben Verbickas who achieved an impressive mixture of A* and A Grades. Callum Levitt achieved a Distinction* for BTEC Business and James Milnes, Matthew Beech, Ryan Walker and Thomas McMorine also achieved the highest Grades for BTEC Sport.

Once again, we have a record number of students going on to study Music at a range of Conservatoires. Hopefully more students will follow in their footsteps next year following the successful introduction of the Specialist Music Course which has links to the Royal Northern College of Music.

We would like to wish all of our students the very best as they embark upon the next stage of their lives.
