Matravers students celebrate A level success


The school has just published this press release: 

Students, staff and governors at Matravers School are celebrating another successful year of A level and BTEC examination results today. The school pass rate is up and the proportion of students receiving the top grades has improved again. The average points score per student, which measures how well students achieve including all their grades, has also gone up, with several students topping the 1000 mark. Many of the students are now looking forward to starting courses at some of the UK's most prestigious universities.

Star A level students this year were Sam McNeil who gained A* AA, Ellen Baker who gained an A*in her extended project and two further A grades and Katie New who achieved AAB.  Meg Whittock was awarded a triple BTEC starred distinction and Melissa Butt achieved a double BTEC starred distinction with a further distinction.  

Subjects that performed particularly well were the Sciences and Art where the vast majority of students gained A*-B grades and in Business, Dance, French, Psychology, where over half the class gained A*-B grades. The results for the Extended Project were particularly pleasing where all students gained A*-B grades under the guidance of Assistant Head Paul Clark. 

Congratulations to the sixth form students and staff of Matravers on another successful year; the school has improved rapidly under the headship of Mrs Beverley Martin and will continue to build on these achievements in the coming academic year. There are still a limited number of places available for sixth form next year. Enrolment will take place on 28th and 29th August; please contact the school if you would like to join Matravers Sixth Form.

On behalf of the Governing Body, well done!
