Salesian College Outstanding A Level Results
It was with great delight and pride that Salesian College was able to celebrate a 99.5% pass rate at A Level with 67% of all grades awarded being at A*-B and 88% being at A*-C . The satisfaction of seeing our young men and women gaining deserved places at university which were their first choice and looking forward with excitement to their next stage of life was very gratifying.
Among the outstanding students this year in the thriving Co-educational Sixth Form were twelve who all gained straight A* or A grades including Jonathan Daines and Dahlin Mony who both gained two A*s and two As. Dahlin will read Medicine at University College London whilst Jonathan will read Mechanical Engineering at Imperial College London. Three students will read Medicine this year whilst among a wide range of other subjects to be studied are Emma Yeoman who gained three As and will read Japanese Studies at Sheffield University, Olivia Morgan with two A*s and an A who will read English at Cambridge University and Matt O’Connor the outgoing Vice School Captain with three As who will continue his studies at University College Dublin. Other students gaining three A grades were Willem Dane with an A* and two As who will read Electrical and Electronic Engineering at Bath University, Beckie Wilson with an A* and two As who will read Mathematics with Business Management at Birmingham University, Luke Simpson who gained an A* and two As who will read Physics with Philosophy at Manchester University, David Rowlands with an A* and two As who will read History at Nottingham University, Chiemeka Okeke who will read Medicine at Cardiff University, the outgoing School Captain William Gallagher who will enjoy a gap year before reading Medicine and Ben Currie with three As who will read Architecture at Sheffield University.
Mr Patrick Wilson, Headmaster commented that "The A Level results this year were outstanding and even better than those achieved last year. All our students in the Upper Sixth deserve praise and congratulations for achievements of which they can be very proud. Whilst the College is focussed on achieving the best academic results of which each individual student is capable of, and assisting them to fulfil their academic potential, Sixth Form life at Salesian is also focussed on enriching our young men and women to become emotionally secure, confident but not arrogant individuals. The wide range of opportunities provided for them in the two years of Sixth Form life at Salesian help them to become well rounded individuals by developing their broader interests and skills, both sporting and cultural. I thank all the staff of the College who have worked with dedication to serve the students and I congratulate both the students and the staff on the outstanding results at A Level achieved this year. I wish our young people well in their future endeavours and assure them of our continued support if ever needed."
