Sixth Form Results 2020

The Year 13 students and staff of Matravers School are celebrating A level and L3 BTEC results success, recognising with great pride the achievements of students at the end of their 7 year journey through the school. Director of Post-16, Ian Browning, said “We are extremely proud of how our students have conducted themselves throughout their time at Matravers, particularly over the past several months and it is fantastic to see so many great outcomes which have allowed many of our students to progress onto their desired destinations to continue their education.”

Among the top A level performers this year are Jonathan Barron who gained two A*s along with an A and another A* in his Extended Project Qualification. Amy Baker achieved A*AA, Amy Routley was rewarded with A*AB and an A in her EPQ and Harry Wild gained A*AB.

Alongside A levels, Matravers Sixth Form offers a wide range of BTEC qualifications, allowing students with different interests and attributes to study subjects that allow them to progress in education or employment. Top BTEC performers this year included Jade Kelly who was awarded 3 Distinction grades (the equivalent of 3 As at A level) and Liam Keevill gained one Distinction* and a Distinction.

A growing number of students are opting to study a mixed pathway of A levels and BTECs at the school, with a great deal of success, such as Olivia Glass who achieved a D* in her BTEC and 2 Bs at A level, Yaz Pearse with a Distinction and two B grades and a B in her EPQ, Macie Poole was awarded a Distinction and an A* and D at A level, and Tiffany Crockford-Ward gained a Distinction* in her BTEC and a B and C at A level.

Many students’ results have allowed them to progress onto their preferred destinations. Amy Baker secured a place to read English at Kings College (University of London), Amy Routley is going to Bristol to read Geology, as is Sophie Smith who will be reading Geography. Harry Wild is headed to Southampton to read Aeronautical Engineering. Chloe Kinder and Lily Beckett are both going to Exeter where they will be reading Law and Marius Hulsbusch is heading to York to study Maths. Tia Fear is satisfying a long-held ambition to read Social Work at the University of Bath and Amelia Baker is going to Southampton to read Ecology and Conservation. Elliott Vowles and Jack Bishop are both heading to Gloucester to read Sports Journalism. The school looks forward to maintaining relationships will all of the students and continuing to support them as they transition into the next phase of their education and beyond.

Deputy Head teacher Paul Clark, who works closely with the Sixth Form, was keen to praise the students, saying “Our students have worked incredibly hard throughout their time at Matravers and particularly during their Sixth Form studies. As with students across the country, they had their opportunity to shine in exams taken from them. It is very satisfying to see students getting their just rewards which we think our whole community can celebrate.”

There are a few places still available in the Matravers Sixth Form from September; any student who is interested in joining this growing success story should contact Ian Browning (Director, Post-16) as soon as possible.
