Post-16 Results

Caedmon College has, yet again, enjoyed an excellent set of Post-16 results, with students achieving higher than ever point scores – 49% of all A-level grades at A*, A or B. Ms Dimbleby, Assistant Principal at the College said, “we are delighted for the staff and students who have worked so hard to get these fantastic results. We continue to make improvements, year after year, and I am so proud to lead Post-16 education in Whitby”.

Mr Prytherch said, “Given the pressure on young people to succeed and the changing nature of post-16 examinations, our students should be thrilled with their results. For many years now, the quality of teaching and learning has improved each year and the places that our students progress to are very exciting; whatever their destination, I wish all the students well.  As you can see from the destinations of our students we are preparing our students very well for the world of work or Higher Education.  With just a few final results to come in everyone at the College is very proud that the A*-B results are the best ever at 50% (up from 44%); which is concrete proof of what can be achieved through hard work. However, real success is not measured only by those students who achieve A* grades, but also those students who achieve better grades than they were predicted. We are committed to adding value to every student’s achievement and this year the average points per entry is again the best ever at 227 (up from 217).  I am extremely proud of the students in every respect and wish them well in their future careers. I would like to publicly thank all those who have contributed to this fabulous set of results, especially the students for their efforts, the talented and hardworking staff we have at the College, their families for their support, and governors for the direction they provide and the community for being behind Post 16 education here at the College.

Jane Kenyon, Link Governor for the College’s Sixth Form said, “These are superb results and show the hard work and commitment of the students and College staff, they also show the confidence the community can have in the work of the College.”
