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 centre-assessed grades, and moderation by Ofqual, this year has been anything but ‘normal’. What has remained the same, however, is that students at All Hallows Catholic College have again been celebrating excellent results. The majority of students have secured their first-choice university place at some of the country’s top universities, including Oxford, Cambridge and St Andrew’s, 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 male and female students are Tommaso Palo and Elizabeth Nuttall. Tommaso will be reading Physics at Oxford and Elizabeth will be studying English Literature at York University. Head Girl, Bridie McNulty, and Head Boy, Kanta Sibbett, were also both among the highest-performing students. Bridie, who will take up her place to read Geography at Sheffield 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”. Kanta, who is going on to study Architectural Engineering at Loughborough University, said “All Hallows has helped me to mature so much as a person, and I am grateful for all of the support I have had”. Charlie Marshall, who will be studying Mathematics at Lancaster University, said, “I’m really pleased with my results, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time at such a fantastic school.”
