Rainhill Sixth Form and FEFA proudly celebrates 2023 A-level and Applied General results

Rainhill Sixth (RH6) and FEFA are pleased to report some excellent achievements by its students in their A-levels and Level 3 qualifications this summer following several years of disrupted education.

Thomas Chamberlain secured 2 A*s in English Language and Government & Politics as well as an A in History and a B in German at A-level and will go onto study History and International Relations at King’s College London.

Kaisha Webster made most progress at Level 3 and secured a grade A in Criminology, B in English Literature and a Distinction* in Health and Social Care. She will study Child & Adolescent Mental Health & Wellbeing at Edge Hill University.

In addition, we had a number of our student’s secure degree apprenticeships with Arabella Reed securing a degree apprenticeship with the police after attaining grade B’s in English Language and Theatre Studies and a grade C in History at A-level and Charlie Houghton securing a degree apprenticeship with Stantec for Civil Engineering after attaining a grade A in Geography, grade B in Psychology and C in Maths.

Against the backdrop of several turbulent years of education during the COVID pandemic our students completed their first set of public examinations this summer and to their credit produced some very good outcomes.

Anthony Cunningham, Director of RH6 commented: “All our students, including those at our partner provider FEFA, coped exceptionally well with some difficult educational circumstances given the impact of the COVID pandemic. Sitting their first public examinations at the end of Sixth Form proved a big ask but the students rose to the occasion securing some excellent results and providing some lovely stories around progression and their next steps. We wish them all the best of luck for the future and will encourage them to come back and share their stories to inspire our younger students through our alumni programme.”

Josie Thorogood, Headteacher said: “We are immensely proud of all the hard work and achievements of our students, especially after such a difficult and disrupted few years. Our students have had to show a real strength of character to get this far. Our teachers have worked tirelessly to ensure students are all able to progress into higher education, secure degree apprenticeships or enter the world of work with confidence and we know that students leaving Rainhill Sixth have the right skills, determination, and confidence to succeed in the future. We are very proud of them all and we look forward to seeing what they will achieve in the future.”
