Amidst a chaotic national picture, there was lots to celebrate amongst our Sixth Formers, and we are incredibly proud of so many of our students who achieved outstanding results.

This cohort of students represented a Year 11 cohort who achieved excellent GCSE results and they have now gone on to replicate this at the next tier up.

Many students achieved top-end grades including:

Isabella Acton A*A*A* A*, Abigail Lowther A*A*AA, Anna Cooper A*A*A

Nathan Spencer A*AAB, Katie Edwards A*AA, Jack Wigley AAAB

Milly Bennet AABA, Jack Farnworth Dist*AB, Jasmine Brookes A*AB

Felicity Carden Dist A*B, Megan McEntee D*AB, Abigail Costiff AAA

Olivia David AAA ,Holly Fry AAB ,Katie Hayward AAB

Lewis Stanley AAB

Elsewhere, we were thrilled with several students who made huge leaps from their GCSEs including:

Isobella Smithson, Tom Flynn, Wil Johnson

Astrid Welfare, Connor Lewis, Isabelle Butler

Lewis Duval, Joseph Gomez, Shona Slowley

As a school, we place a great emphasis on keeping manageable student numbers, knowing each student well, and tracking their strengths and weaknesses at every step to enable them to peak. These students have bought into this approach 100% and their success makes every plan, initiative and intervention our team have put in place worthwhile.

Carrie Cain, Assistant Headteacher, said: “We have been supporting our students with their university and apprenticeships and after wading through the busy UCAS lines things have fallen in to place. Isabella Acton and Laila Sirag gained their Oxbridge places, we have students venturing across the UK, whilst others have secured places closer to home, and the next generation of medics, engineers and lawyers will have Lichfield students leading the way.”

Matt Allman, Headteacher, said: “We are delighted in so many cases, and it has been wonderful to talk to thrilled students and parents, but we also recognise exceptional families that will have tough evenings tonight as they fall victim to anomalies and discrepancies in these results. Any national algorithm is going to hit some individuals and subjects unfairly and no school will be untainted by this. We do not advocate A*s for everyone, but we do support equality in opportunity, and it would be wrong to say this has taken place.”
