Lucton School celebrates another year of excellent GCSE and A level exam results.
A level pupils at Lucton School celebrate another year of excellent exam results and Head of Sixth Form, John Goode, praised his pupils’ success, saying, “I am absolutely delighted. Our pupils have worked so hard and can now look forward confidently to continuing in their chosen fields of study.”
Achieving 30% A to B and 80% A to D passes, with just under 20 candidates, some of this year’s cohort achieved results that were well ahead of their predicted grades. Ben Davies, Lucton’s Head Boy, who has been at the school for 11 years, achieved A*AA.
Apart from the majority leaving for university, two of Lucton’s leavers are going on to Veterinary Care and RAF IT apprenticeships.
GCSE and IGCSE
With 75% pass rate and 13.5% A* to A (& numerical equivalent), the results saw a drop this year, but they are a just reflection of the ability range within this cohort. Mrs Gill Thorne, is delighted by the results. “Being a mixed ability school, we are used to variable results, and I am particularly pleased to see the rise in the number of subjects achieving a 100% pass mark. Many of these, especially the sciences, are subjects that universities value particularly highly and the statistics are quite remarkable.”
Lucton School and Sixth Form is home to around 350 pupils and the Headmistress, Mrs Gill Thorne, credits Lucton’s exam success to its size, stating, “We are able to personalise programmes of study and tuition, tailoring these to each student and coupled with outstanding teaching, means that Lucton provides an excellent education.”
