Ted Wragg Trust celebrates Post 16 results
Students from across our schools celebrated impressive post-16 results this morning, with the majority of our students securing their first choice destinations and schools surpassing national averages of 79% (UCAS 2023). Students from our Sixth Forms at Honiton Community College, Lipson Cooperative Academy, Marine Academy Plymouth, Queen Elizabeth’s and Sidmouth College achieved strong results, with 40% of grades awarded at A*-B and almost 70% of grades awarded at grade C or above. Level 3 vocational results were also really strong with 18% of all grades awarded at Distinction* level against a national average of 11%. Many of our students are now going on to take up places at Universities across the country to continue their studies.
Individual school achievements include 95% of students at Lipson Cooperative Academy, and over 90% at Sidmouth College, achieving their first choice destinations; 24% students at Honiton Community College achieving Distinction* (far in excess of the national average of 11%); 18% of students from Marine Academy Secondary taking up places at Russell Group Universities (up from 2% last year); and 27% of students at Queen Elizabeth’s Crediton achieving an A*/A grade or Distinction*, with 44% going on to take up places at Russell Group Universities.
