Students hard work rewarded by rising A-level results

Students and staff at the Haverhill Community Sixth Form are celebrating the second consecutive year of rising A-level results.
The percentage of the highest grades, A* and A at A-level and Distinction* in Btec, has risen for the second year running to 38%. Nearly 60% of results were A* to B or Distinction* to Distinction while the overall pass rate is 98%. 
Headteacher Andy Hunter said: “I am really delighted for all the students who worked so hard to meet their university offers and have found out this morning, after months of waiting, that they have got the place they deserve. 
“This year was a fresh start for Haverhill Community Sixth Form, under the leadership of Daisy Hopkins and her team, and I know that they are very proud of the results the students have achieved.”
Head of Sixth Form, Daisy Hopkins, said: “These results are testament not only to the hard work of the students but also the dedication and expertise of the teachers. 
“I’m looking forward to welcoming our new intake of Year 12 students from across Haverhill on Friday 23rd August at our enrolment day.”
Students are going on to follow courses ranging from astrophysics and medicine to nursing and accounting. Their destinations include both Oxford and Cambridge, Durham, Birmingham, Nottingham, Warwick and Bath.
