The Cooper School has achieved another good set of A Level results since changing status to become an 11-18 school in September 2011 and this summer saw its highest number of students, 93, taking A Levels across 23 different subjects. The results were as follows:
14% achieved A*/A
38% achieved A*- B
68% achieved A*-C
98% achieved A*-E
Of particular note was the outstanding academic achievement of Hugh Fryer who achieved (A*A*A*A*) and Catherine Mullier who achieved (A* A A) and will now go on to study languages at Cambridge. Other students who achieved outstanding results were: Nicole Corfield (A* A* A*), Kristen Cole (A* A A), Chloe Dodsworth (A* A A), Anna Lamche (A A A) and Amy Nolte (A A A ). Head girl Katy Framingham also achieved an excellent set of results (A* B B).
Catherine Mullier said : “It still hasn’t really sunk in yet, but I got the grades I needed to get into Cambridge! I’m so grateful to all the staff for their support over the two years and now I’m just really excited to see what the future brings.”
Mr Ben Baxter, Executive Headteacher at The Cooper School commented: The Year 13 students can now look forward to taking up their university places. It has been a tremendous five years for the sixth form and these results reflect the commitment of the staff and students who are to be congratulated on their successes.
Mr Mark Doorley, director of Post 16 studies stated: While we are somewhat disappointed by the fact that these grades are lower overall than our results from last year, many of our students will still get into their first choice university places. I would like to wish all of our students the very best for their bright futures.
The Cooper School looks forward to continued growth in the future. For the first time since it opened, the sixth form will enrol over 100 students into Y13 for September 2016 and over 125 students for its Year 12 cohort.
