A Level Press Release 2021

Another Successful Year for Students at All Hallows


Every year, A level results day is one of nervous anticipation followed by delight, as students receive their long-awaited examination results. With the cancellation of exams, submission of teacher-assessed grades, and moderation by exam boards, this year has been anything but ‘normal’ yet again. What has remained the same, however, is that students at All Hallows Catholic College have been celebrating excellent results.  The vast majority of students have secured their first-choice place at some of the country’s top universities, including Cambridge, St Andrew’s, York, Leeds, Liverpool and Sheffield, while others have been successful securing very competitive apprenticeships.


Principal, Tim Beesley said, ‘We are delighted with what our young people have achieved. Despite all the challenges and disappointments that they have faced, they have shown real resilience and character. We are delighted with all of the individual achievements and successes, and I would like to thank the teachers and staff for their hard work, dedication and outstanding pastoral care, and our parents and families for their support - especially this year’


Chair of Governors, Mrs Clair Watson said, ‘I am absolutely thrilled with the results of all of our students and on behalf of the Governors would like to pass on my sincere thanks to their teachers, for the dedication with which they serve our students’.


Head of Sixth Form, Dave Howells, said ‘These results reflect their tremendous energy and commitment to their studies. As a year group they have been superb role-models for the rest of the College, demonstrating outstanding leadership and commitment to making a difference through their volunteer work and Catholic social enterprise projects.  As they move on to the next stage of their lives, they carry with them great values and attitudes.’


This year, the highest achieving students include Matilde Palo, who will be reading Chemistry at Oxford University, Jack Cheung (Maths at St Andrew’s), Archie Ashton (History at York), Emily Dixon (Law at UCL), Imogen Drake (Natural Science at Leeds), Charlotte Edwards (Criminal Justice & Criminology at Leeds), James Franklin (History at Exeter), Lindsey Hinks (Computer Science at Leeds), Megan Hinks (Bio-Medical Science at Sheffield), Charlotte Roberts (Bio-Medical Science at St George’s), Aidan McKillop (Maths with Statistics at Bristol), Roisin Middlemass (Maths at Warwick), Mia North (Art Foundation at Macclesfield College), Patrick Pardillo (Civil & Structural Engineering at Leeds), Noé Peckham (Chemical & Nuclear Engineering at Leeds), Lydia Power (Politics & International Business at Liverpool), Bryn Price (Maths at Durham), Benjamin Prior (Geography at Durham), Weronika Prusak (Mechanical Engineering at Edinburgh), Nathan Reynolds (Biology at Sheffield), James Richards (Maths at Nottingham), Joe Robinson (Physics with Particle Physics at Lancaster), Isaac Smith (Urban Studies & Planning at Sheffield), Will Townley (Mechanical Engineering at Nottingham), Hannah Winn (Psychology at Sheffield) and Sophia Zobolas-Barton (Environmental Science at Birmingham).


Head Girl, Holly Jarvis (Law & Politics at Cardiff) and Head Boy, Jeffrey Tugade, were also both among the highest-performing students. Jeffrey, who is going on to study Financial Maths at Nottingham University, said “I couldn’t be more grateful for all of the support and guidance that I received from this amazing school. These past two years have been incredibly challenging, and I couldn’t have achieved my successes without All Hallows help”
