Hele’s school students and staff are celebrating record A level successes today with a large number of students securing places at university. This is the fourth year in a row of record results, and we are delighted to buck the national trend in this respect with our best results ever. Almost half of all entries scored grades from an A* to a B with an overall pass rate of 99%.

Top performer was Scott Larcombe who achieved A* grades in Chemistry and Maths and A grades in Further Maths and Physics and who will now take up his place at Exeter University to study Physics. 

James Lucas scored 3 A grades in Politics, Geography and History and will now study History and Politics at Exeter University. Josh Edmonds also scored 3 A grades in Maths, Further Maths and Physics and will now continue his studies at Southampton to study Electrical and Electronic Engineering. 

Other notable performances were from Evie Wilson, achieving an A* in English Literature plus an A in PE and a B in Religious Studies and from Ellie Selley, who scored an A* in History, an A in Sociology and a B in PE. Lucy Knight, who will be taking a year out as an au pair in Spain, achieved an A* in English Literature, an A in Drama and a B in History.

Alice Duke also deserves recognition for her A* in Fine Art and is off to Falmouth to study Interior Design. 

We are equally delighted with the performance of our year 12 students which again is our best set of results ever and bode extremely well for next year. 

Andy Birkett, Principal, said ‘Its a great day. Yet again we have seen new records set as the sixth form grows from strength to strength.  Congratulations to the year group whose impressive grades are counter to the national trend. I’m very pleased to see that the continued efforts and hard work of our students and staff has paid off. We wish all of our year 13 students the very best with whatever they have chosen as their next pathway.’
