More than 40% of A Level students at Sibford School near Banbury have achieved an A* or A grade in their 2013 exams.

And, with the top grades being spread across a range of 13 different subjects, celebrations were being enjoyed throughout the school.

Sibford head Michael Goodwin said: “To have students achieving so highly in so many different areas really does demonstrate the strengths across our whole curriculum.

“The subjects where at least one student achieved an A* or A grade include Art, Drama, English, Maths, Geography, Sciences, Languages, Economics, Business and Media. I think these successes really do underline the importance of being able to give students a flexible choice when it comes to sixth form studies.”

Individuals who achieved outstanding results included Aaron Pim, who gained A*s in Maths and Further Maths and an A in Physics; Ross Atkin, who achieved an A* in Geography and As in Economics and Business; Essie Dennis who got A*s in Drama and English and a B in Art; and Adam Cooley who gained an A* in English, A in Business and B in Biology.

“These are fantastic ‘headline’ achievements,” said Michael Goodwin “But as ever we also need remember that we have students with C grades who have also done outstandingly well.”

Added Mary Memarzia, head of Sibford Sixth Form: “These are a terrific set of A Level results which reflect the dedication, enthusiasm and energy of the students and their teachers.

“I am delighted that so many students have been successful in securing places on exciting and challenging university and college courses of their choice, and wish them every success.

“We are an inclusive Sixth Form where all students are encouraged to reach for their own goals and it has been pleasure and a privilege to work with so many talented young people.”
