Fantastic Results – 98% Pass Rate

Staff and students at The Sixth Form Bolton celebrate yet another year of outstanding Advanced Level results, again outperforming national results and reinforcing their position as a nationally high achieving Sixth Form.

The Sixth Form is pleased to announce even better results than in previous years with 57 subjects with 100% pass rates, 98% BTEC National Diploma students achieving Distinction* – Distinction and 59% of students achieving higher grade passes overall. The Sixth Form continues to maintain year-on-year impressive outcomes for students.

Principal, Stuart Merrills said: “With The Sixth Form Bolton having one of the highest national progression rates to Higher Education, the majority of students will now move forward to secure their places at universities across the country. Students are progressing to study a broad range of subjects encompassing: sciences, medicine, law, business, music, performing arts and humanities.”

These results coupled with the Sixth Form’s excellent careers, advice and guidance programmes, as well as strong links with industry and employers, have enabled students who chose not to progress to Higher Education to obtain excellent career opportunities with many now choosing to take a higher level apprenticeship route.

“I would personally like to thank the staff at the Sixth Form too”, said the Principal,” who work as a great team, with a huge amount of desire and commitment to see our students do well. I’m extremely proud of the level of dedication, care and attention they bring to work every day
