QUEEN Elizabeth’s School Sixth Form students have achieved a set of excellent results once again this year. The overall pass rate was 98 per cent with a record 43 per cent of these grades being at A*/B and 70 per cent at A*-C.
Deputy head teacher Tim Farrer said: “This reflects the hard work, commitment and dedication of our students and staff and we are really pleased.”
In the school’s wide range of vocational qualifications, the number of students achieving a Distinction or Distinction* (equivalent to a grade A/A* at A level) rose to 65 per cent of all entries with results across all vocational subjects being excellent.
