A Level Results 2023
South Dartmoor Community College is once again celebrating some impressive A Level results. Despite national trends of decreasing performance, students have maintained last year's very positive grades.
They have performed exceptionally well, securing places across the country at top universities including at Russell Group universities such as Bath and Bristol. A fifth of students achieved one or more A*s. In addition to this, more than half of all students achieved an A* or an A grade, with an outstanding overall pass rate of more than 96%. Most importantly, the vast majority of students secured the grades they needed to enable them to move on to their first choice for the next stage of their futures.
Jen Veal, Executive Headteacher, said: “Education is about opening doors for students for their futures and our students really do have bright ones ahead of them. We have students going to read architecture at Bath and Cardiff, Classics at Winchester, Music at Southampton or Durham, Game Design at Plymouth and Law at Bristol. We have one student who has her pick of three top universities to study fashion.
"We are immensely proud of all the students, they have done so well despite these exams being the first public exams they have sat due to Covid. We continue to recognise and celebrate that, although the results are important, our students are so much more than just their grades. They are amazing young people who have contributed so much to the school community during their time with us.
“We wish all the students every success for the future. We hope they will stay in touch and tell us about all the fantastic achievements, discoveries and adventures that they will undoubtedly have, either as they continue their educational journey or venture out into the world of apprenticeships or work.
“On behalf of the staff, we congratulate all our students and wish for them the very best that life has to offer.”
