Whitmore High School A Level Results
After an abrupt end to their 6th form life and uncertain few months, Whitmore High School students celebrated record-breaking results with 46% of grades awarded A*/A.
The Head of 6th Form, Dan Topley, said "Huge congratulations to our Year 13 cohort! We are so proud of the way that they have dealt with this unprecedented situation and the fantastic results that they have achieved, which reflect the hard work and resilience that they have shown over the last 2 years. In everything that these students have done, they have made a positive contribution to school life and will be a positive asset to the community at large. They are now ready to pursue their passions including Sports scholarships in the USA, Engineering at Oxford University, Medicine, Veterinary Science and some very interesting apprenticeships. I would like to wish them all the best for the future."
