Destinations and results
Greenshaw Sixth Form has consistently seen exam results improve at A Level in recent years.
Public examinations were cancelled in the last two summers (2020 and 2021). They were replaced in the first year with Centre Assessed Grades, broadly generated by using existing data already held by schools as the cancellation of exams was decided in March. In 2021, public exams were cancelled earlier in the school year, this time replaced by methods that each individual school and college proposed. Each was separately approved by the Joint Council for Qualifications.
In the last two summers, the grades achieved by A Level students in the Greenshaw Sixth Form allowed them to progress to a wide range of destinations. The majority of our Year 13 students moved on to undergraduate courses (including medicine and law). Many of these are at prestigious Russell Group institutions, including Cambridge and Oxford Universities. We are also proud that our strong work in the creative arts continues to enable students to move on to foundation art courses, and directly into world leading institutions such as Central St Martin’s University for the Creative Arts. As well as heading to higher education, we are equally proud that our A Level courses enable our students to enter apprenticeships and employment.
Where national comparison is possible, our A Level results have been significantly above national average progress in each of the previous eight years. As an example, in 2019, over one in five of every A Level grade at Greenshaw High School was at A or A* with 73% of students achieving a pass at A*-C.
In addition, we have a statutory requirement to publish the link to the 16-18 performance tables.
