GCSE Results Day 2021

Another wonderful set of results for students at Altrincham College received their Key Stage 4 results today! Alongside the Key Stage 5 results from earlier in the week, the school has been celebrating the hard work of all its young people. 

Headteacher Kim Earle said, “Two years of stopping and starting classroom provision, providing high quality remote learning and still maintaining a school sense of community has given us unprecedented challenges throughout the pandemic. What never ceases to amaze me is the resilience and determination of our young people to do the absolute best they can despite everything that is thrown at them!  Our Year 11s have achieved the grades that they have worked so hard for and thoroughly deserve.  Today’s results will open doors to future study and employment and good lives for themselves; as a school we couldn’t want any more for our students.  The vast majority of Y11s, having done so well up to this point, are going on to complete their secondary education in our fabulous Sixth Form, and we look forward to welcoming them back in September. Congratulations to all our students and a huge thank you to all our staff.”

Individual success stories include student Terri who achieved eight GCSEs at grade 9 and two 8s!  Terri said, “I am over the moon about my results – they are dream results.  I will look back at my time at Altrincham College with happy memories.” 

Mohammed, who gained an impressive six 9s and four 8s was equally thrilled with his results: “I am very happy and I am looking forward to studying Biology, Chemistry and Maths at A Level so that one day I can study medicine at university.  The pandemic has motivated me further and made me appreciate how hard doctors, nurses and scientists have worked.” 

Twins Amelia and Olivia enjoyed double the success, achieving nine 9s, eight grade 8s and three 7s! They said, “we are very happy and relieved!” 

Student Adam added that he is “excited and ready for Altrincham College Sixth Form.”  He is looking forward to studying A Levels in Biology, Chemistry and Maths and said, “As hard as these subjects are, I have flourished in them.  I have been stressing so much about my results, but the hard work and effort was all worth it.” 

Head girl Sophia is also looking forward to continuing her studies at Altrincham College Sixth Form and is aiming for a career in medicine or as a pharmacist.

Ms Earle would like to give a special mention to those students who have made outstanding progress from when they joined us in Year 7 to Key Stage 4, including: Aidan, Leah, Evie, Ibrahim, Adam, Amina, Robert, Caleb, Mohammed, Isabel, Sam, Millie, Kirsty, Amelia, Olivia, Sienna, Anya, Emelia, Daisy, Eleanor, Maddison, Terri and Evetta.

A Level Results Day 2021

We wish our students the very best of luck as they embark on their next steps towards a bright and exciting future.  Many of our students have accepted places at university, and between them, they will be studying a diverse range of degree courses such as, Psychology, Law, Zoology, English Literature, Sociology, Filmmaking and Environmental Science to name just a few.  One positive outcome from the pandemic has been to inspire some students to pursue careers in the NHS through their studies in Paramedic Science, Nursing and Biomedical Science.   Other students are planning gap years or taking up apprenticeship opportunities.

Ms Earle said: “I am so proud of these amazing young people! They have come through a fragmented two years of study determined to grasp everything on offer to them, both educationally and pastorally, and have now achieved wonderful results! Well done to everyone; we wish you every success as you spread your wings and fly towards the next stage of your lives whether that’s in education, training or employment.”

Individual success stories include Fay who achieved Distinction*, A*A* and is heading to Stirling University to read Environmental Science. 

Josh and Liam both succeeded in 3 Distinction* grades in their vocational studies; Josh is taking a gap year and Liam has accepted a place at Leeds Beckett to study filmmaking. 

Sian, who scored AAA at A Level said, “I’m feeling very emotional!  I am so happy and I can’t wait to go to Liverpool University!”  

Simmy, who is going to the University of Manchester said, “The 7-year journey was worth it! I wouldn’t have done it anywhere else than Altrincham College.  I wouldn’t be here today without the support of my amazing teachers.”

Head of Sixth Form, Katy Brennan added, “this year’s cohort have amazed us with their sheer determination and commitment, despite two years of disrupted learning. Students have remained positive, focused, and have adapted well to the many restraints that covid has caused."
