Collectively there were another 6 Distinctions and 8 Merits for BTECs across Media, Sport, IT, Business and Countryside Management.
Sibford Head Toby Spence said: “It has been a remarkable morning at Sibford with our students and staff celebrating some outstanding personal achievements. We are not only thrilled with those who have achieved As and A*s but also those who have exceeded their expectations in many other areas.’
‘I am also delighted for the many students who opted to take one or more BTEC examinations with the majority achieving results of either Merit or Distinction. We are very proud of the wide range of destinations and pathways that our students are pursuing – from those who are heading to ‘Russell Group’ universities such as York, Warwick, Southampton and Queen Mary’s to those who are furthering their careers in a wide range of vocations such as fashion, sport, media, land management, music and marketing. This reflects the diverse and thriving community that is found at Sibford School.”
