Sacred Heart Catholic Academy celebrates A-level results day





Sacred Heart Catholic Academy celebrated another successful A-level results day on 17 August. The school achieved an A-level pass rate of 97%, with almost 40% securing the highest A* – B grades. All students are going on to university, training or employment destinations, with many securing places at the UK’s leading universities including the University of Oxford, University of Liverpool and University of Manchester where they will study a range of courses from medicine to cyber security. Headteacher of Sacred Heart, Mark O’Hagan, said: “We are delighted that so many Sacred Heart students have achieved so highly. We are particularly pleased to see the overall pass rate improve to 97%. “The number of students achieving the top grades of A*-B has reached almost 40% in a year when fewer top grades have been awarded across the country. “The A-level results today, are testament to the students’ dedication and hard-working attitude, the high quality of teaching here at Sacred Heart and the outstanding individual support we offer all students to reach their potential.” One student, Chloe Baker, said: “I’m so happy and thankful to the school for all their support! I couldn’t believe it when I got the email confirming my place at the University of Oxford but I can’t wait for October!”
