Performance and Results

A Level Results - August 2020

A message from Headteacher, Mr Quach 

The Sixth form results have been released and it has been an excellent set of grades for our Sixth Formers. Undoubtedly, for parents/carers, students and teachers, the weeks leading up to today would have been a mixture of excitement and trepidation. These results mean that our students will continue to build on their success experienced at The Sele as they move onto their next setting, be it to a renowned University; a highly skilled apprenticeship programme such as the Government Economic Service Degree Apprenticeship Programme or into employment. 

Well done on a deserved outcome for all our students considering the circumstances you found yourselves in the final months leading to the end of your sixth form experience. To the Class of 2019/20 - I wish you all the success as you move onto your next exciting chapter. 

A message from Head of Sixth Form, Mrs Lee 

This year’s results are a testament to the hard work and dedication shown by the students coupled with the support and guidance of their teachers. They were on their way to completing a very successful two years in our Sixth Form until the global pandemic abruptly ended their time at The Sele School. 

Our students’ destinations are varied with some going into the world of work; some taking a gap year to help them decide on their future path and some are off to university. We are immensely proud of the fact that all our students who wished to go on to Higher Education have been successful in securing their place at their first choice University. 

Once again, our students gained some very good results, notably the superb achievement by Nathan Lockwood, who was awarded 4 A*s in Maths, Further Maths, Chemistry and Physics. Billy Walsh achieved an A* in Mathematics and Cs in both Chemistry and Physics and is off to study Engineering at De Montford University. Our Head Girl, Regina Vargacz achieved an A in Spanish; a B in Art and a Merit in Health and Social Care and is off to study Events Management with Spanish at the University of Hertfordshire. 

Mention must also be made of the excellent progress of Ally Thrussell who achieved an A in Geography; a Distinction in Business and a B in English. These grades have enabled her to fulfil her ambition of reading Global Development and Sustainability at Bath Spa University. 

The other subjects our students are off to study across the country include: Human Resources, Geography, Photography, Criminology, Arts and Festival Management. 

Finally, I’d like to take this opportunity, to say a very big well done to all our sixth formers and we wish them all the very best in their future careers. 

A message from Deputy Headteacher, Miss Hein

There is much to celebrate with this year’s results both in our Year 12 and Year 13 cohorts. The greatest pride I have, however, is in how resilient, focused and positive our students have been in what has been an undeniably challenging and unsettling period of time for all of us but especially students who were denied many rites of passage such as sitting exams and enjoying Leavers’ celebrations. Many students will be inspired by Nathan Lockwood’s excellent results and we wish him the very best in his future endeavours as he reads Mathematics at Warwick University.  Students at The Sele should be proud of their commitment to their studies which has enabled them to pursue a pathway that is appropriately interesting and meaningful for them. Our collegiate approach (staff, students and parents/carers) to our students’ academic and personal success means that they can celebrate their achievements (albeit in a socially distanced way) and begin forging a bright and productive future. We are confident that the life lessons our students have learned during their time with us has equipped them with the drive, courage and work ethic they will need to negotiate all of life’s wonderful adventures.

 

GCSE Results  - August 2019

Congratulations to all our Year 11's who worked hard and got the grades they deserved.     

Headline results are shown below

The cohort for 2018/2019 included a large number of students (14% of the final cohort) who joined the year group after they had started their GCSE studies. These students had a disproportionate effect on the results and therefore we have indicated not only the school’s total results but also those of the students who were in the school for the entirety of their GCSE studies.

Our Deputy Head Boy, Jacob Collins achieved an excellent set of results including 2 A*s (equivalent) in Maths and Sport Studies and will be reading Mathematics with Actuarial Science at the University of Southampton.  We are also particularly proud of our Head Boy, Jordan Russell, who achieved very good results gaining 2 Grade Bs in Maths and Physics. Jordan has successfully secured a place at the University of Keele where he will be pursuing his interest in Astrophysics and Mathematics. They are examples of what motivation, diligence and hard work can accomplish. We look forward to following their academic journeys and have no doubt that they will use the foundation that they’ve built at The Sele School to propel them to even greater heights.

 

Gemma Caruana also performed very well gaining 168 UCAS points and subsequently has been successful at her choice to read Accountancy at Nottingham University. Other students who have been successful at securing their first choice University option are: Krystian Pluta who will be studying Biomedical Sciences at Greenwich; Victoria Lear studying Forensic Science at Nottingham Trent University and Rahima Ali who will be studying Education Studies at London South Bank University.

Several our students will be studying at various local colleges including: Fashion course at Herts Regional College as well as a course in Nursing and Midwifery. In addition to this, some students have opted not to apply to University but in the light of their results have sufficient points to go through the Clearing process if they so wish.

Most students who completed a vocational course or BTEC qualification in either Business Studies, Health and Social Care; Sport Studies or Media, achieved a number of Merits and/or Distinctions and Distinction *s.

The Year 12 results are also encouraging and there is much to celebrate here too. We have students who have gained top grades in Spanish, Maths and Chemistry thus giving them a good platform on which to build. We expect great things of them in the coming academic year.

Head teacher, Neil Dunn, “We congratulate all our students for their efforts and results and do not forget their dedicated teachers who are committed to providing our students with a first-class teaching experience and are always around to support and encourage.”

Deputy Head teacher, Tosca Hein, “Many students will be inspired by Jacob Collins’ excellent results which have secured his place at the University of Southampton to read Mathematics with Actuarial Science. Students at The Sele should be proud of their commitment to their studies which has enabled them to pursue a pathway that is appropriately interesting and challenging for them. A number of students have achieved ‘Personal bests’ by meeting or exceeding their ambitious targets that were set for them two years ago and many of them have been thanking their teachers for their relentless support which helped them to achieve these excellent results. I am very proud of the fact that our collegiate approach (staff, students and parents/carers) to our students’ academic and personal success means that they can celebrate their achievements and begin forging a bright and productive future.”

Head of sixth Form, Jane Lee, “I am extremely proud of all the hard work our students have put in the over past two years and I wish them every success for the future in all their varied career paths.“
