Results Day 2019
OSFC is celebrating its best ever A Level pass rate, at 99%, well above the national average. In addition, a higher number of subjects have a perfect 100% pass rate. We continue to build on our superb record for A Level studies, with 381 students achieving at least AAA or equivalent.
As has been the case for many years now, there was a superb 100% pass rate by students completing vocational/Applied General courses. A phenomenal 96.5% of students taking the Extended Diploma achieved the highest grades, with over 1000 Distinction and Distinction* grades, which are the equivalent of A/A* grades at A Level. A substantial number of students completed ‘blended’ programmes, combining A Level and applied courses and have achieved excellent results in these too.
As the case studies below show, OSFC students have secured places at Oxbridge and other Russell Group universities and there are many other superb outcomes in terms of both progression to a wide range of universities and to other excellent options including apprenticeships, gap years, Art Foundation courses and directly into employment.
We are proud to offer the widest choice of A Levels in the area and a 4 AS Level programme in Year 12, giving students a full external exam experience in their first year, a greater number of qualifications than offered by most sixth form providers and flexibility about subject choices on progression through to Year 13. Our AS Level pass rate is also the best ever this year.
Jayne Clarke, Executive Principal, said “We are once again delighted and very proud of our students’ results. Students at OSFC have the broadest of choices, make outstanding progress and achieve superb results year on year. To have achieved our strongest pass rates in the context of the new tougher A Levels is testament to the hard work and dedication of both the students and our staff, who have supported students wonderfully well. We wish all our students the very best of luck on the next steps in their futures, whether this be at university, on an apprenticeship or in employment.”
