Students celebrate A-level results after disrupted studies


Students celebrate A-level results after disrupted studies

by Henry James (August 2022)

STUDENTS across West Lancashire have been receiving their A-level results.

The vast majority of this year’s graduates would have embarked on their courses in 2020, so their studies would have been affected by Covid-19.

However, teachers at Ormskirk School have said the class of 2022 have achieved the “best results seen at the college for a considerable number of years.”

This year’s results are better than 2021 where teacher assessed grades saw a 20% national increase.

This year, with the return of formal exams, 28% of grades have been awarded at A*-A and a 52% at A*-B.

Ormskirk school added that students also “surpassed their predictions”, bucking the national trend which is currently reported in the region of 10% lower than teacher predictions.

A spokesperson, added: “This has ensured a genuine atmosphere of celebration for university and vocational pathways including; Rachel McKinney, 4 A*’s going onto to study Veterinary Medicine at Cambridge University, Georgia Martin going on to study Spanish and English also at Cambridge, Caitlyn Routledge 4 A’s going on to study Environmental Science at York, Ryan Brown, 2A*2A going on to study Physics at Edinburgh University and Ella Walsh who got BBC and is going on to do a degree apprenticeship in Accounting.”
