Sixth Form Results

A level Results 2017

Congratulations to all LSU and LaSWAP students for their many successes at A level and BTEC celebrated today. A large increase in A and A* grades!



LaSWAP A Level and BTEC results – 17 August 2017 LaSWAP improves % of top grades with new rigorous A levels

LaSWAP is London’s longest-standing consortium of school Sixth Forms, and includes La Sainte Union, William Ellis, Acland Burghley and Parliament Hill. Nearly 1000 A levels and BTEC qualifications were taken across LaSWAP this summer, and students congregated at La Sainte Union School this morning to celebrate their numerous successes. With many taking the new A levels, which have little or no coursework, and are entirely examined at the end of the two years, we are delighted they have sustained an A Level success rate of 99%, above national averages. Whilst the national average improvement at A*-B grades is 0 .1%, LaSWAP grades improved by 3% for the top grades. LaSWAP students are taking up places at prestigious universities across the country once again including Oxford and Cambridge. Higher Education progression rates are very high and students will be following a broad range of courses across the sciences, humanities and arts, with English and Law being favourite courses for top performing students. We are very pleased with the grades awarded to our high-achieving students who will be heading off to top universities but it is important to note that many other students have been equally successful on vocational courses, making outstanding progress in their time at LaSWAP. This is a comprehensive sixth form and we are proud that we offer opportunities for post-16 study to young people arriving with a range of GCSE qualifications. A number of our students, who would not have been allowed entry to advanced level courses elsewhere, have gained the triple distinctions equivalent to A*A*A* and have been offered degrees at prestigious universities. Several of our students have also taken advantage of the excellent apprenticeship opportunities available in Camden and the local area as a positive alternative to university, with the possibility of sponsored degrees in the future. The successful performances reflect the work ethic and determination of our students. Much credit must also go to the teachers across LaSWAP, who worked together across the schools to meet the challenges of these more difficult A Levels. The teachers planned many assessments so the students were not disadvantaged by the lack of practice papers available from the exam boards and so were well prepared for the final exams. We wish all our students every success in the future, and look forward to welcoming many back to inspire future generations of aspiring LaSWAP Sixth Formers.
