A-level Results 2018

It has been another pleasing year at Harton 6th Form and we are delighted that so many students have reaped the rewards for all the hard work they have put in over the past two years. It is lovely to see so many fulfilling their ambitions with high numbers heading to a wide range of universities across the country and several taking up apprenticeships and school leaver programmes. It has been a pleasure to see all the students grow, develop and flourish in many areas of school life and we have every confidence that they will be successful in the future and look back on their time at Harton with fond memories. Overall, the students made positive progress with 100% achieving one A Level or equivalent, 98% achieving two or more and 90% two or more. Overall 21 students achieved AAB or higher and 37 students achieved BBB or higher. Overall, over 50% of grades achieved were at grades A*- B which is the highest figure since the 6th Form opened in 2010.

It is also incredibly pleasing to see a number of students gaining places on incredibly competitive courses such as Midwifery, Nursing and Primary Education. The majority of students were successful in gaining places at their first choice university and several students have been accepted on apprenticeships at local companies and on very competitive school leaver programmes. We look forward to keeping in touch and hearing how everyone gets on and celebrating this success again at the 6th Form Awards Evening which takes place on the Monday 17th December at 7.00pm.
