A-Level Results 2018
Commonweal School is celebrating the third consecutive set of strong A Level results since opening its Sixth Form. With its largest ever cohort of students successfully completing a broad range of subjects and the highest number of students receiving top grades including a record number of A*s; most notably in subjects such as Maths, Further Maths and Computer Science. These results demonstrate that Commonweal is achieving its core aim of helping students from across Swindon to make excellent progress towards their personal and academic goals.
There were many notable individual performances, including Ruth Flame who secured her place at the University of Oxford to study Law with 3 A*s, Holly Snowdon achieving 2 A*s and an A to study Mathematics at Loughborough as well as Carmen Fitchett who secured a place at U.W.E. to study Psychology with a B and 2 Cs after returning to Commonweal following an unsuccessful year at college elsewhere.
There were very strong subject performances, with students making excellent progress against national targets, in English, R.E., Sociology, Graphics, Drama, Business Studies and Film Studies, Performing Arts and Sport. This strong performance across a broad range of subjects has meant that, once again, a very high proportion of students have been successful in gaining a place at their choice of university.
Robert Linnegar, Headteacher, said,
“As ever, we are delighted with the individual progress of students and the high numbers of students moving on from Commonweal to their chosen academic or vocational path. They are testament to the hard work and commitment shown by students and staff through two challenging years of study.”
As Year 13 students now leave Commonweal for the next exciting chapter in their lives we wish them the very best. Year 12 students have already laid very solid foundations to ensure that they achieve their goals this time next year. As always, Commonweal’s commitment remains to work with a very broad range of students to ensure that they can achieve above and beyond their own expectations. We would like to thank all parents and carers for their support during the challenging two years of A Level and CTEC study.
