It’s been an excellent end to the first two years at Chapeltown Academy, a new 16-19 free school serving north Sheffield. With a dazzling pass rate at A Level of 99.1% (which is above the national average of 98.1%), we have many Year 13 students who are destined for a variety of excellent universities, including Kings College London, Cardiff, York, Leeds, Warwick, Swansea and Sheffield.
At A Level, we had some truly fantastic results in Modern Foreign Languages with 60% of students achieving A* - B. In addition to this, in French and German, 100% of students achieved A* - A in Year 13. Three other facilitating subjects (English Literature, Physics, and Geography) also achieved 100% A* - C at A Level. English Language and Literature also hit 100% A* - C, with Economics and Mathematics A Levels achieving a A* - D pass rate of 100%. Special congratulations go to seven of our students who achieved 100% UMS points in one or more of their A Level modules. All of these were achieved in facilitating subjects such as Biology, Mathematics, Geography, History, and English Literature.
The trend continues with our AS level results. Our A-E pass rate at AS is 90.1%. In addition, many subjects at AS have achieved results well above national averages. English Language and Literature, Accelerated Mathematics and Further Mathematics, Physics, French, German, Spanish, History, and Geography all achieved an A-E pass rate of 100%. A – B pass rate results in Further Mathematics, Geography, and Computer Science were all also significantly above national averages.
Ali Jaffer, Interim Head Teacher, commented, “We are so proud of all our students, and wish all our first graduating cohort the best of luck in the next stage of their careers.” Special mention should go to the extraordinary A Level results of Heather Crossland (A*A*AA), Anya Lewis (A*AA), and Kirsty Joelson (A*AB), who will be starting courses at the universities of Warwick, Cardiff, and Swansea respectively in September. Similarly, Jake Mortimer, Callum Holyer, and Daniel Marsh in Year 12 achieved some brilliant AS results, with all students attaining at least three A grades each.
