Weatherhead Sixth Form Students Are Truly World Class!
Ueatherhead High School is absolutely delighted to report outstanding achievement of its students in their A levels, BTECs and Child Care courses this summer. All students should be extremely proud of their achievements and the maturity and incredible resilience they have shown in these unprecedented times.
This year, following the cancellation of exams, grades were awarded through a process of teacher assessed grades against a national standard and approved and awarded by the exam boards.
110 students have secured places at University and many of these places are at leading Russell Group institutions, and other students are embarking on Higher Level Apprenticeships, taking a gap year or starting employment.
One student, Beth Birtles achieved 3 A* grades and will be studying Medicine at The University of Bristol and Alexandra Hunstone will be studying Classics at The University of Cambridge having achieved 1 A* and 2 A grades.
Twins Sarah and Elodie Dubuis both achieved outstanding results, Elodie achieved 2 A* and 1 A and Sarah achieved 2 A grades and 1 B and are both going to the University of Manchester. Sarah is going to study Psychology and Elodie Physics with Theoretical Physics.
Alice Mathieu achieved 3 A levels with a grade A in Music and at the same time she has gained a Grade 8 with Distinction in her London College of Music Examination in Musical Theatre, with a Grade 8 being the highest possible standard of exam, a remarkable achievement and she is hoping to study English Literature and Italian.
Emma Crosbie and Katie Taylor both achieved 3 top level BTEC grades and have been successful in securing places to study Child Nursing and Charlotte Smith also achieved 3 top BTEC grades and will be studying Learning Disability Nursing at Edge Hill and Millie Nicholls, Luca Pastor and Alycia Fahy all achieved top A levels or BTECs results and will all be studying Adult Nursing. Chloe Shaw also achieved top BTEC grades and is going to study Midwifery at The University of Manchester.

Rachel also secured an Arkwright Engineering Scholarship during the Sixth Form and will continue to be supported by this prestigious scholarship throughout her time at university.
Headteacher Miss Whelan commented:
“These results are a true reflection of all the dedication and hard work that the students have put into their studies over the last 2 years. They have all worked incredibly hard from day one of their courses and coped so well with the continued disruption and fully deserve these achievements and I could not be prouder of them all. They should also be congratulated on the immense resilience and maturity they have shown over the last 18 months in these unprecedented circumstances and all students have been fully engaged in their remote education and zoom lessons throughout the pandemic and these achievements are a real testament to their total dedication and commitment to their studies in a completely new way of learning.
The tremendous support and hard work from the teaching staff, the diligence and care of our support staff and our excellent partnership with parents and carers over the last 2 years must also be recognised and I am so proud of how we have worked so hard together as a school community to ensure all our students achieved their very best during these difficult times.
Our students are very special and have shown true grit and determination throughout their Sixth Form studies and really deserve the success they have achieved and these results will open many doors for them, with so many going to university and also securing higher level apprenticeships. I wish every student all the very best for their future endeavours.”
Mrs Carol Rogers, Chair of Governors would like to congratulate all the Year 13 students and wish them all the best for the future and also thank staff for their tireless hard work and total professionalism in maintaining such high standards during these unprecedented times.
