Bridlington A-level students faced the nerves to find out their exam results this morning.

Students from both Headlands School and Bridlington School found out the results what will determine their futures.

Headlands School achieved a 97% pass rate at A-level with 20 courses achieving 100% pass rate. The success continued on to vocational courses with students achieving 11 Distiction* and 14 Distinction* or Distinction meaning 64% of BTECS were at a top level including 100% Distinction* rating for music students. Subjects achieving A* and A grades at A-level were achieved by 75% of Art and Design and 50% of Photography students.

Head of sixth form at Headlands School, Mrs Nind, said: “I am really pleased with the results that show all the hard work has paid off. Most of our pupils managed to get into their first choice university which is excellent.”

Bridlington School claimed a 100% pass rate throughout the school on all subjects with 86% achieving A* to C grades. 52% of pupils managed to achieve A* to A grades.

Headteacher at Bridlington School, Sarah Pashley, said: “We worked very hard to ensure that teaching in our sixth form is extremely high quality. We are particularly delighted that there has been such a big improvement in terms of students achieving the top grades of A* and A which is up 12% on last year. I’d like to say a massive well done to the students, parents/carers and the staff who have worked so hard to ensure this success - a real team effort.”
