2018 has been another record breaking year of A level results for students at Urmston Grammar, with an impressive 66% of examinations graded at A* to B. Eighteen of our Year 13 students achieved a phenomenal set of straight A/A* grades and 34% of all grades awarded were either A* or A.
Ella Morrison, who achieved AAA and is going to the University of York to study Psychology, said, “I can’t wait to start the next chapter of my life at university. I didn’t think I would get the grades, but the hard work really does get you great results”.
James Boyd, who has aspirations to join the police force, said, “I’m glad that the hard work paid off and I can’t wait to join the Greater Manchester Police.”
Jess and Beth Molyneux have continued to achieve matching outstanding results – A*A*A* for both sisters. Jess, who is off to the University of Cambridge to do English Literature, said, “I am overwhelmed and looking forward to doing some chocolate tasting to celebrate!” Beth is going to the University of Oxford to study Languages.
Jack Oliver achieved BBB and says “I can’t wait to start my Sports’ rehabilitation course.”
Megan Jones showed real resilience when she didn’t get into her chosen course last year. She says, “I got BBC in my subjects last year, but I decided that I wanted to stick at it and chose to re-sit. This year I got AAA and am now off to study Veterinary Medicine at the University of Liverpool.” Her advice is simple: “Even when you think that there is no chance of getting in to such a popular course, keep pushing yourself, work hard and you will achieve your goals.”
Mrs Wall, Principal, said “It was lovely to see so many students celebrating their success with their friends and teachers. These amazing results are the culmination of the hard work and dedication students have shown throughout their time in the school and sixth form and we are hugely proud of all of them. The results reflect the commitment and dedication of the students, but also the incredible support they receive from their teachers and their families. Well done to all!”
We are delighted that so many of our students achieved their personal goals and secured places at the universities of their choice. We wish them all well in the next phase of the education or employment and look forward to hearing of the continued successes that lie ahead.
