Sixth Form SuccessPosted: August 20, 2018

Sandwich Technology School students and staff have been celebrating a fantastic set of academic, International Baccalaureate and vocational A-Level results.  

This year, as reported widely in the press, the post-16 qualifications have been harder than ever before and STS students have risen to the challenge.  The wide and varied curriculum on offer at the school has provided the students with excellent progression routes into University, College, Apprenticeships and employment.  The school is particularly pleased with the improved A-Level results in English, History, Psychology and Mathematics and that the recent introduction of Physics, Biology and Criminology has been successful.

A delighted Tracey Savage, Headteacher, commented: “This is a real measure of the hard work of the students and staff.  The students are now looking forward to continuing their education at University, College or as they embark on their careers.  I am really proud of their achievements and wish them the best of luck and success in their future lives.”

Students deserving a particular mention are Hollie Townsend, who achieved a triple Distinction* through the Football Academy and who is going on to Exeter University to study Psychology with Sport and Exercise Science; Matt Gingell, Jess Guyver, and Alex Munteanu, who all achieved three B grades and are going on to a gap year, Kent University to study English Literature and Kent University to study Criminology and Law respectively.  Congratulations also to Kai Glover, Emmy Midgley and Jessica Phipp, who all achieved three or more good A-Levels and are off to study at Huddersfield, Lincoln and Canterbury Christ Church Universities respectively. Once again, the majority of STS Sixth Form students have secured a place at their first choice university.

Maria Stone, the Head of Sixth Form said: “Our students continue to show how committed they are to their studies with resilience and real strength of character and I would like to congratulate all of them on their achievement.  As a school we continue to have a high success rate in securing our students’ access to university and other training routes and we are proud that our Sixth Form is going from strength to strength.” 

Sandwich Technology School is determined to help as many students as possible achieve their dream of Level 3 courses in a non-selective environment, which is why the school is excited about the introduction of a ‘Transition Year’ to the Sixth Form in September 2018. This new programme is designed to help students who wish to study A-Levels but need a little longer to secure their Level 2 studies in a grown up, Sixth Form environment, before successfully studying their A-Levels in Years 13 and 14.
