Results Day 2018

August 16, 2018


It has been another excellent year for results at St Bede’s Catholic Sixth Form College, Lanchester, with over 40% of entries attaining A*-B grades - a figure well above the government’s expected target for this year’s cohort -  and an overall pass rate of 98% (above the national average). A-level results at the school have been consistently strong, securing students’ places in the country’s top universities.


Headteacher, Neville Harrison, is again delighted with this year’s results. He said: “I am absolutely thrilled with the results that our students have achieved. A-levels are more challenging and more rigorous than ever and our students have worked diligently throughout their two years of study to achieve their very best. On behalf of the governors and staff, I’d like to congratulate each and every one of them. I am also incredibly proud of our team of specialist A-level teachers, whose exceptional subject knowledge has ensured that our students have achieved the very highest grades and accessed the Russell Group universities.”



Some outstanding individual performances this year include Connor King, who achieved 4 A*s in Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics and his Extended Project Qualification. Connor is a former student from Tanfield School and is going on to study Dentistry. Eve Coulthard achieved A*, A A and is going to study Costume Interpretation with Design. Sophie Armstrong (completed in 2017) achieved 2 A*s in English Literature and Mathematics, an A in Chemistry, and an additional A* for her Extended Project Qualification. Sophie will be studying Biochemistry at Oxford. Emily Naylor has also secured a place at Oxford this summer following some excellent results. Joining her at Oxford where she will be studying English will be Cecilia McAloon who achieved an A* in Maths and A grades in French and English Literature.


Overall, 8 students achieved 3 A* or A grades this year.


Headteacher, Neville Harrison, added: “Whatever our students have chosen to do, be it university, an apprenticeship or into employment, we wish them every success and happiness for their future and we hope they cherish many happy memories of their time at St Bede’s.”
