Sixth Form Achievements

A Level Results 2016 – A Message from the Head

We are absolutely delighted at Monkseaton to be celebrating today with our students their success stories and personal achievements with some remarkable success. This is testimony to the outstanding quality of leadership, teaching and learning, care and guidance that we give to our students. Students, parents and staff should rightly be very proud of their achievements.
These results have been achieved in the context of many national changes to 6th Form courses across the country and the introduction of new challenging A Levels. At Monkseaton we offer a full range of courses in the 6th Form and this really allows us to cater for the educational needs of all our students. These courses range from the traditional A Levels to more vocational qualifications. By offering a full range of qualifications we can ensure that our students attain and learn in a style that suits both their ambitions, interests and academic profiles to successfully progress to their next destination.

All students have progressed again this year onto destination pathways ranging from Dentistry, Law, Sports, Business Studies, Nursing to Apprenticeships or college courses. Five students are leaving for the USA as they have secured apprenticeships through football scholarships. At Monkseaton the Sixth Form has a highly successful and renowned football academy.

We are proud to report the percentage of students attaining A*-B grades (in academic A level subjects) has risen again and is now approaching 40%, over 70% of students achieve A*-C and all students at A level achieved success maintaining our 100% A*-E record again above national. The average for our academic courses is a C grade, which is similar to most other providers. Our average grade for vocational courses is a Distinction+ which is significantly above the national average. These courses have allowed the vast majority of students to progress to University or other appropriate and exciting destinations.

We are a very welcoming and open school – if you wish to visit us or enquire about our 6th Form courses please don’t hesitate to get in touch by either emailing our Sixth Form team direct or by telephoning them as they will be happy to help.
