The Duston School is delighted with the outcomes of its Post 16 students, which are the best ever in its Post 16 history. We are incredibly proud of all of our student’s accomplishments and achievements and commend the staff for their continued hard work and dedication in supporting our students to achieve the very best possible outcomes. There has been an overwhelming increase in results this year, with a significant increase in the total number of A* grades attained by students. Outcomes have increased across almost every key headline measure, with a rise in the number of students attaining A*-A, A*-B and A*-E passes. The number of students achieving the facilitating measure, i.e. three AAB grades or more in three rigorous academic subjects, has almost trebled on last year’s outcomes in this measure. 6 students achieved A*/A grades in three of their A Level pathways. A number of our students will be going to prestigious universities such as Warwick and Durham. There has also been sustained excellent outcomes in Maths, Further Maths, Sociology, Geography and Physics, which remain the top 5 performing subjects within the Sixth Form.
Mr S Strickland, Principal, is delighted and enamoured by the efforts and achievement of all students.
Mrs N Whiles, Director of Sixth Form, is exceptionally proud of students who have lived her motto of ‘dreaming big.’ She is excited for the year ahead as work comes to completion on the incredible new Sixth Form centre which places the Sixth Form at the heart of the school.
Prospective students that may be interested in joining the Sixth Form should contact a member of the sixth form team by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by contacting us directly on 01604 460004.
