UNIVERSITY beckons for two students at Chester Catholic High School after they both achieved straight As.
Lucy Black is going on to study chemistry at Bristol University, and Tom Waite will read Civil Engineering at Manchester University.
Catholic High School, celebrated an A-level pass rate of 98%, with the proportion of A and B grades at just under 50%.
James Dee, Stephanie Owen, Christopher Perry, Helen Morris and Canice O’Mahony, secured two As and a B.
Headteacher, John Murray, said: “It is fantastic to see so many young adults moving on to the university of their choice.
“We have students who have done so very well at every level, from the straight As, to those who have really achieved by passing two A-levels. They can all feel very proud of their achievements.”
“This success is also a tribute to the hard work and energy of our teachers, and a result of the support the students have had from parents who have taken a real interest and been involved throughout.”
“I am sure there will be some so-called experts who will claim the A-levels aren’t what they used to be, but I believe these students have had to work harder than any other generation to achieve these grades.
“They have had to take at least six separate examinations to secure each A-level, and for a student to get top grades requires a remarkable level of consistency.”
