The students at Abbeyfield School, Chippenham have posted some of the best A level and BTEC results ever. 100% of students entered for 3 or more A levels achieved A*-E with 42% of those students achieving A*-B grades. Almost one in four students achieved the highest grades of A*, A or Distinction* in their A level or BTEC results. A total of 48% of students who took BTEC qualifications achieved Distinction or Distinction* which emphasises the value we place at Abbeyfield on both the academic and vocational qualifications we offer. In all, 79% of students achieved A*- C or Merit across the A level and BTEC range; a result to be truly proud of.
Headteacher, Ian Tucker says: “For the past two years, the development of the Sixth Form has been high on the list of School Improvement Priorities for the school. We have demanded a great deal from students and staff in the pursuit of strong and competitive outcomes and they have gone above and beyond with their response. Sam Owen, our Head Boy, who achieved A* in History, an A in Business Studies and a B in Biology devised the strap line: “Enter to learn… Leave to achieve” within days of joining the Sixth Form. This group of students have taken that motto to heart and we are delighted by these results and wish all students the very best with their next steps.”
