Academic Achievements

SAMUEL: I am blown away with my results and so thankful to the AKS teachers who have helped me to achieve all that I have whilst at school: the highlight being our visit to Buckingham Palace last year as national runners-up in the Tycoon in Schools business enterprise competition” 

  1. It is our aim to educate our pupils within a caring school community, guiding each individual to develop and grow into a knowledgeable and successful young adult with the skills, character and personality both to lead and to serve.
  2. This formal statement is made available to all interested parties in accordance with our Provision of Information policy, and is published on the school’s website.
  3. The school uses a variety of internal and external assessments (ref. Assessment, Recording & Reporting policy) to inform teaching and learning, and to evaluate pupil progress against relevant national norms.

Of the 66 students who took A2s in 2017:

  • →  11 pupils gained three or more passes at A*/A

  • →  28 will study at Russell Group universities

    →  6 gained places at a top 10 universities (The Complete Universities Guide 2018)

    →  9 will study medicine or dentistry (all who applied)

    →  6 will undertake an apprenticeship or enter employment

    83% of our students who applied to university secured an offer of first or second choice, including 23% who accepted unconditional offers.

     

In 2017 our leavers have gone on to read a wide range of subjects including:

  • Medicine at Edinburgh University
  • Dental surgery at Liverpool
  • Mathematics at Warwick University

A high proportion of students have gained places on courses at their first choice of university with a 100% success rate in applications for medicine, dentistry and all other competitive courses. Some students have chosen prestigious apprenticeships with companies including British Aerospace with others, who have gained the results they need, taking a break to pursue interests outside of education including travel and philanthropy. Excellent grades allows students to choose their own routes.

It’s great to see so many AKS students get into their university of choice and the breadth of careers and courses they have chosen highlights the wide variety of specialism and interests they have. Whilst it is great to see so many students take up places at top universities to read subjects such as medicine, dentistry, teaching, economics, mathematics and law; it is also fantastic to see a number of our students pursuing their passion for other subjects such as acting, music, journalism, film and criminology. This breadth of interests is no surprise and reflects the wide range of activities that they have undertaken over the last two years including: volunteering, ‘Tycoons in School’, the Duke of Edinburgh Award, Round Square, the EPQ and countless sporting, musical and cultural opportunities.” Head of Sixth Form, Phil Hayden
