A-Level results open up fantastic opportunities for hard-working students of Withernsea High School

On Thursday 15th August, Year 13 students were joined by staff and parents at Withernsea High School to collect their A-level results.

For many students, their results were confirmation of the strong commitment to learning shown over the last two years – a commitment that has already led some into apprenticeships, further training and onto degree courses. For those with conditional offers from university the long wait was over, the tension was released, and they were able to celebrate securing places.

Headteacher Mark Crofts commented: ‘Congratulations to our Year 13 students. They should be very proud of what they have achieved in their exams and, most importantly, by what opportunities they have opened up.

Studying is always hard work, and through this hard work our students have grown and developed over the last two years. The just reward for such work is the chance to develop further in an area of study or work that really interests them.

I’m therefore delighted that our students are able to take up such a diverse range of apprenticeships and courses in subjects such as Sports Coaching, Medicine, Law and Astro Physics. We look forward to hearing of their future success.

My thanks go to parents and carers, for their partnership with us over the last seven years, and to the staff of Withernsea High School - not only those who taught and supported the students in the Sixth Form - but also those who laid the foundations on which these successes have been built.’
