Didcot Sixth For Students Achieve Strong Results

Didcot Sixth Form, a partnership between Didcot Girls’ School and St Birinus School, is celebrating the outstanding achievements of its students in A Level and BTEC qualifications this summer.

Students in this cohort have worked hard in challenging circumstances throughout their time at Didcot Sixth Form and have been predicted consistently strong results. We are delighted that the grades students were awarded today recognise this hard work and allow our students to go on to the destinations they desire. 

In summary, for the 144 students who completed their A level studies this year:

  • 18% of all entries gained A* grades
  • 45% of all entries gained A*-A grades
  • 72% of all entries gained A*-B grades
  • 91% of all entries gained A*-C grades
  • 99% of all entries gained A*-E grades
  • 66% of BTEC students have received a double distinction

As a school community, we celebrate the achievements of all our students. There are some exceptional individual performances that deserve special mention. Overall:

  • 33 students have achieved A grades in all A Level qualifications taken this year
  • 49 students have secured places at Russell Group universities
  • 95% of university applicants have secured their first choice of university
  • 11 students have achieved A* grades in all A Level qualifications taken this year
  • 3 students have gained a place at Oxford or Cambridge

Special mention should go to the Gilmour family. With a total of 8 A*s and 2 As between them, triplets Eve, Grace and Lily Gilmour were simply over the moon this morning and offered their thanks to all those teachers who had helped them right the way from Year 7. 

“We couldn’t be prouder of our Year 13 cohort today. I believe each of our students should open their results with pride: they have been a wonderful cohort, have worked hard since the first day of Year 12, and are destined for success regardless of the adversity they have faced over the past 18 months. I’m delighted that we have students going to the top universities, into the world of work, and into a range of exciting apprenticeships. Behind these results are unique stories of adversity and challenge, sustained hard work and, of course, considerable potential.”James Cross, Director of Didcot Sixth Form

“In a year that has been challenging in so many ways, I am delighted for our students who have achieved much-deserved success in unprecedented circumstances. We are ready to offer support and advice to any student who would value a conversation about how to navigate their way through their next steps whatever these may be. Congratulations to all of our students of whom we are extraordinarily proud today.”
