C6 A Level Results
Commonweal Sixth Form students and staff are celebrating an outstanding first set of A Level results which demonstrate that the Sixth Form has been successful in achieving its goals of helping students to gain high levels of academic qualification and progress onwards to further academic studies. Students have responded to the high standards of teaching with enormous commitment and hard work and this is reflected in these results.
Levels of attainment were outstanding with 58% of A Level grades at A*- B and, a very impressive, 100% at A*-E with 72% of students achieving an A*-B grade. These very pleasing figures should ensure that, in comparison with previous data, the Sixth Form has achieved well above national and local performance figures.
