Rupert Poole Principal at the Queen Elizabeth’s School in Crediton, said
“We have seen great success across the full range of subjects with 78% of students getting A* - C grades, and we are delighted that 29% of students made the top grades A* - A and 54% at A* - B. Progress measures are very strong with early indications of a value added score of +0.25, which demonstrates the consistently strong progress QE students make.
Results day is always an exciting day and it is a real pleasure to see all the students opening their results and getting the reward for all the hard work they have put in. We put a lot of emphasis on the supporting the students take their next steps, be that in higher education, apprenticeships or employment and we wish them all the very best as they head to universities, employment and apprenticeships. We have tremendously high numbers of students going to university to study a range of subjects, from medicine to art and dance. We are celebrating the results of all our students, they all deserve to be congratulated on the hard work they have put in and the results they have achieved. The education system has been through huge change in recent years - with the return to intensive exams at the end of Year 13 - and I’d like to thank and congratulate the teachers and students alike who have dealt with the changes admirably. I’m very pleased with this set of results.
Head of Sixth Form - Lucy Jones said
“I am delighted with the results our students have achieved this year. It is a real privilege to have worked with such a motivated and hard working group of young people and it is always a pleasure to see them moving on to such well-deserved destinations after sixth form. As ever, a high number of students move on to university places from QE, but we are also seeing a rise in students gaining places in higher apprenticeships. We wish all our students every success in the future and look forward to hearing how they get on.”
