Cognita’s British Curriculum students celebrate 2018 A Level results
At a time when A Level results are seeing a downward national trend, students in Cognita’s British curriculum schools are celebrating another successful year with results rising year-on-year.
Among the highlights are St Clare’s School in Porthcawl, Wales whose students significantly outperformed the Welsh national average, with 81% of A*-B grades compared to 52% nationally. There was cause to celebrate across the border, too, as students at North Bridge House Senior School and Sixth Form Canonbury, London secured places at Russell Group universities to read subjects including Astrophysics, Economics and Political Economy.
This cohort of A Level students is the first to study under the reformed A Level model where assessment is primarily based on examinations rather than coursework.
Stuart Rolland, Cognita’s Chief Executive Europe, said: “We are honoured to celebrate the A Level success of our students today. These results are testament not only to the hard work of these individuals and their teachers during the examinations, but the progress they have made over the course of the academic year. It is a privilege to help each and every one of them reach even higher and we wish them every success in their continued studies and future careers.”
The British Curriculum, including A Level studies, is one of a number of curricula taught in Cognita’s 70 different schools across the world. Other curricula taught in our schools include the American Curriculum, Australian Curriculum and International Baccalaureate.
