John Willmott School is celebrating after they secured yet another strong set of A Level results.
The school has continued to build on last year’s success with more students than ever achieving the highest grades possible. An amazing 21% of results were at grades A* and A, 50% of results at grades A*-B and 73% of results at grades A*-C. These results show that the school continues to go from strength to strength, supporting students to achieve their very best outcomes.
Headteacher Tracey Peters said: “Last year’s A Level results placed us 10th in Birmingham for progress, and we are thrilled that our students have secured yet another fabulous set of results this year.
“It has been a particularly challenging year nationally but our students have continued to study from home so that they are fully prepared to pursue the next stage of their education, employment or training. They should be congratulated on their excellent work ethic and commitment to self improvement.”
