Amidst all the changes nationally to the exam system, Eckington School's 2018 A Level results have shown an improvement from last year. The Principal, Alison Burgess, welcomed the results: 'We are delighted with the exam results of 2018, for the whole range of students, which continue to show improvement year on year. The standard of teaching here at Eckington, with the increased support and challenge of LEAP Academy Trust, is moving towards excellent. Throughout the past two years our sixth form students have demonstrated great commitment and hard work, whilst engaging in a wide range of extra-curricular and social activities.'

The major change nationally over the past two years is that almost all subjects taken now at A Level have a new syllabus with only a final examination. This has obviously been a challenge to both staff and students, to which we have been able to respond.

Our A Level average points score per entry is up on last year as are the number of higher grades, and several students have gained places at Russell Group Universities.

Mrs Burgess said 'As a comprehensive school, our focus is on achieving outstanding results for all our students, and also delivering high value-added progress from GCSE to A Level. We pride ourselves on offering opportunity as widely as possible by keeping restrictions on entry to sixth form courses to a minimum. As a result, a number of students who in many institutions may not have been allowed to begin Level 3 courses have gained very commendable grades, thereby giving them access to university places'.

One of the key reasons for our success, which we hope will grow even more with LEAP, is the consistent focus on the interests of the students, developing a broad range of skills and responsibilities. Our excellent tutor team works with the students from day one, identifying any concerns at an early stage and offering constructive support and guidance throughout the two years of study.

There were several outstanding individual results: " Daniel Burgess with 4 A* grades at A Level in Chemistry, Further Mathematics, Mathematics and Physics, together with an A* grade in The Extended Project. (Daniel is going on to Cambridge to study Natural Sciences).
