A-Level Results 2020

Students at St Chad’s have achieved an excellent set of results in their A Levels, Level 3 BTEC courses, RSL music and Level 3 CACHE course (which enables students to gain employment in Early Years Education).

The results have ensured that all students wishing to progress to university or to an apprenticeship have secured their place. Others have secured employment. All students who applied for university have secured a place on their first-choice courses.

With an overall pass rate of 100 % A*-E, 3% of the grades achieved were A*/A at A level, 33% at distinction for the BTEC courses and an outstanding 100% at distinction* for the RSL music course. Overall, 69% of students achieved A*-C grades and 100% achieved a pass or above in all BTEC and RSL courses. Many students performed exceptionally well. We are very proud of all of our students and of their achievements in what has been a very difficult and uncertain time for them. We congratulate them all and wish them every success for the future.
