A Level Results Day 2021

100% Success for Sixth Form Students at Wolverhampton Grammar School

It’s another year of top A Level, Cambridge Technical and BTEC results for students at Wolverhampton Grammar School – judged “Excellent” in all areas by school Inspectors.

Congratulations to all Upper Sixth students who, despite another year of uncertainty, have achieved stellar results.

The results in brief:

  • 70 Upper Sixth students achieved 212 A Level, Cambridge Technical and BTEC awards
  • 79 coveted A* grades awarded (41% of all students)
  • 33 students achieved exclusively A and A* grades
  • 165 A* – B grades awarded (85% of all students)
  • 186 A* – C grades awarded (96% of all students)
  • 100% pass rate
  • A full house of BTEC Distinction grades awarded to Sixth Form students studying Music; 14 Cambridge Technical Distinction * and Distinction grades awarded to students studying Information Technology (IT) and Physical Education (PE).

Sixth Form students from Wolverhampton Grammar School have achieved the highest number of A*- A grades for over 10 years, with 66% of entries receiving the top two grades.

A combination of coursework, mock exams, written and practical assessments have been used by teachers to determine grades this year.

Reflecting on the extraordinary arrangements put in place for grading again this year, Alex Frazer, Head of Wolverhampton Grammar School commented “Through a hugely difficult period in their education they have kept their spirits up incredibly well and have worked exceptionally hard – I take my hat off to them. Teacher assessment has enabled those who know our students best – their teachers – to observe student performance and asses their ability using written and practical assessments, mock exams and coursework.  Today’s results are testament to everyone’s hard work and dedication through what has been a difficult 18 months and I am incredibly proud of our student and staff community at Wolverhampton Grammar School.”

Wolverhampton Grammar School always has an expert team in place over the coming weeks for students and their families to talk through subject results and post results services. Just one of the reasons this national award-winning school was judged “Excellent” in all areas following an inspection by the Independent Schools Inspectorate.

Sixth Form students have the opportunity to study at least three subjects at Sixth Form, with some choosing to go the extra mile with a fourth subject. As well as A Levels, students at the School achieved outstanding success in Cambridge Technical qualifications. BTEC and the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ).
