Bablake students are reaping the rewards of their efforts with impressive A level results, achieving 70% A*-B
Headmaster, Mr Andrew Wright said ”This pleasing set of results is a testament to the hard work and commitment of our students and to the encouraging support of their families and our staff. We are very proud of our Sixth Form ethos in which students are encouraged to play a full and active part in all aspects of school life and push themselves beyond the academic curriculum. I have no doubt that the achievements of our students today will set them firmly on the path to successful future careers.”
Head of Sixth Form, Mrs Alison Tumber is delighted to see her students realising their ambitions and heading off to study a range of subjects at first class universities Three students will continue their studies at Oxford and Cambridge and many more are starting at medical school. Prestigious apprenticeships have been secured with Aston Martin, JCB and Warwickshire County Cricket.
Over one-third of all students have achieved at least two A*-A grades and many have added to their A level results by participating in the Bablake Advantage Programme, resulting in additional qualifications in the Extended Project, Accountancy or Law.
A team of students were excited to share their exam successes with Harrismith Secondary School, our partnership school in South Africa, as these students had started their A level journey with a memorable trip to the school. The students continued to fundraise throughout their Sixth Form study to ensure that Harrismith pupils had access to IT facilities and school uniform. Mrs Tumber said, “Seeing the fine young men and women that Bablake students become is what makes my job so rewarding. They are kind, thoughtful, and passionate and make the most of opportunities that come their way. These students deserve their excellent A level results, but that is only a small part of the remarkable young people that they are.”
