Holy Trinity School and Sixth Form Centre Students Celebrate A Level Success

Once again all Year 13 Sixth Form students from Kidderminster's Holy Trinity School and Sixth Form Centre secured University places or chosen work placements following this year's A level results. Holy Trinity’s pass rate was 97%, with 27% - A* and A grades and 41% - A*, A & B (top grades). Amongst this year's highest achievers were twin sisters Eleanor and Rhianna Hinton who secured top grades across the board: Eleanor will now go on to study Biomedical Science at Worcester University achieved top grades in Biology, Psychology and PE and sister Rhianna, who will take Fashion Design at Falmouth University, also achieved top grades in Textiles, English Literature and Geography. Head of Sixth Form, Dr Melanie Hinton, commented: "With many more A level subjects undergoing reform and the amount of coursework much reduced compared to the older style, more modular A and AS levels, these new qualifications have provided a much more rigorous set of assessment criteria. It is all down to the hard work, dedication and support shown by our staff and our small, tutorial-style teaching groups that has enabled our students to achieve such a pleasing set of A level grades. "In a competitive, ever-changing playing field, they should be proud of their achievements and we wish them every success for their future." Headteacher, Mrs Pamela Leek-Wright commented: “I am extremely proud of all of our students who have achieved such excellent results, especially in the ever-changing landscape of exam reform. I would like to wish them the very best of luck as they move into the world beyond school.”
