Students celebrate A Level success across Sandwell

Young people across Sandwell got their A Level and vocational qualification results yesterday, with many of them achieving top grades in their chosen subjects.

Councillor Simon Hackett, cabinet member for children's services is proud of the achievements made by young people in Sandwell. He said:

"Yet again I’m very proud of young people in Sandwell we have some outstanding results. I know this would not be possible without the support from school staff, parents and carers so thanks to you all.

"If young people haven't got the results they expected, please go to our drop-in exam results service where there is advice and help on what to do next."

Sandwell Council's exam results service is available at Sandwell Council House in Oldbury every week day from 10am to 4pm. Staff from Connexions Sandwell, who run the service, will offer expert advice on future options including further education, university, careers, apprenticeships and much more. Principal James Topham at Wood Green Academy in Wednesbury is very pleased with his students' achievements. He said:

“We are extremely pleased with this year’s A Level results. The students have all done really well and we’re very pleased for them. I’d like to thank all the students, staff and parents for their hard work.”

Students from Ormiston Forge Academy in Cradley Heath have achieved another excellent set of results at both vocational qualifications and A Levels. The academy gave special mention to A Level students Hinna Awan who got A* in philosophy and ethics and A grades in English literature, history and Extended Project Qualification, Sviatoslav Behei who got A grades in maths and Russian and a B in law and Mark Chen who got a B in maths, an A in Chinese, a C in business grade C and a D in further maths. Head of the Academy, Dr Lisa Mason said:

“Congratulations to all students picking results up today. We are particularly delighted that we are able to offer outstanding A level and Applied General studies here at Forge, as evidenced by results over the last five years.

“The competitive, yet friendly welcoming family that we have been building at Forge is paying dividends. Our year seven is full in September and our sixth form is becoming the place to study for key stage five students who want to get results and fulfil their potential."

Students at Ormiston Sandwell Community Academy in Oldbury were also celebrating after receiving their A Level results. Holly Silwood is also off to the University of Sheffield after her fantastic results, gaining a Distinction* in musical theatre and a B in film studies A Level. Hamandeep Hayer and Ruqaya Iqbal are also off to university doing teacher training and social care respectively. Executive Principal Marie McMahon expressed her delight saying:

"We are all so proud of how well our sixth form students have done once again this year. We wish them all the very best in this next, exciting stage of their education. Well done all!"
