St David’s College is proud to report an outstanding set of A level and BTEC Level 3 results from our Year 13 group this summer.

Our Science pupils have continued their excellent run of results with 80% of the Applied Science BTEC grades at Distinction* – Distinction and 77.7% of Biology, Chemistry, & Physics grades at A* – A. Our Art A level pupils have also built on the successes of last year with 100% achieving A*-B grades
Stand out performances came from Sebastian K who achieved an A* in Maths and Physics, and an A in Chemistry; and Ka Yu “Victor” W who earned an A* in Maths and Biology, and an A in Chemistry. There were some outstanding combined A level and BTEC results with Fuchsia J achieving a Distinction* in Music BTEC Level 3, an A* in Art & Design/Photography, and an A* in English Literature. Joshua D earned a Distinction* in both Music BTEC Level 3 and Performing Arts BTEC Level 3 as well as an A in A-level Geography, and a in B English Literature. Congratulations also go to Tirion J who earned a Distinction* in both Applied Science and Business Studies BTEC Level 3, and a B in Design & Technology.
Once again, this year due to the on-going disruption caused by the coronavirus pandemic and the cancellation of exams, grades were awarded through a process of teacher assessment, set against a national standard, and approved by the awarding exam boards. The government is not publishing performance data for schools and colleges this year due to the varying impact of the pandemic.
St David’s College Headmaster, Mr Andrew Russell said: “We are hugely proud of the achievements by our pupils. It is so pleasing to see their hard work rewarded with these well-deserved results. The staff at St David’s have gone above and beyond to support them and we can’t wait to see what wonders they will achieve in the future.”
