Lucton Celebrates 2011 A, AS and GCSE results
03 Nov 2011
A & AS results
Lucton students achieved their best ever A Level results in 2011, with 55% at A* or A grades. These results are all the more impressive when you consider that Lucton has a highly inclusive admissions policy. Further statistics show that, in all, 85% of passes were at A* to C grades and the vast majority of subjects taken in the Sixth Form are in the traditional, academically-demanding subjects favoured by world-class universities. 100% of our leavers gained entrance to UK universities and 60% to Russell Group universities.
There were smiles all round at Lucton School on results day. For the second year running, over one third of all exams taken achieved A or A* grades – well above the national average – and 80% of GCSE candidates achieved 5 A* to C grades. Being a mixed ability school, we are used to variable results, but any selective school would be proud of these grades.
Lucton has always done very well with added-value scores and this year is no exception. In fact, this cohort has again achieved excellent value-added scores. Some students improved on their Year 9 predictions by over 2 grades per subject. These results fully endorse the school’s ambition to enable every pupil to achieve their full potential.
