PUPILS and teachers at Formby’s schools are celebrating after another outstanding set of A-level results.
More than half of Formby High’s examination candidates gained top grades (A*-C), while staff at Range High were also delighted with this year’s results.
Dominic Mackenzie, headteacher at Formby High, said: “We are very pleased with the outstanding results our young people have achieved once again this year. They indicate that Formby High continues to be a school where the very highest quality of education is provided and we wish all our students the best of luck for the future.”
Mrs Pamela Bell, Chair of Governors, said: “I am very proud of how this school is helping young people in the area to achieve their potential. Well done to them and a huge thanks must also go to our staff.”
Individual successes include Thomas Harrison who gained straight A*s and has been awarded a place at Oxford University to study physics. Four other students also achieved straight A* and A grades.
Triplets Jonathan, Katie and Michael achieved 10 A-level and BTEC qualifications between them.
Graham Aldridge, headteacher at Range High, said: “I would like to congratulate the students on their wonderful results. They reflect the immense hard work by the students, and the support from the whole school community. We are very proud, and delighted to see them continuing to the universities of their choice.”
Sophie McDonagh has secured a place at Liverpool University to study business economics after receiving two A*s and one A grade. Daniel Walsh, who achieved the same grades, will study economics at Exeter.
