2019-2020 Sixth Form Success
HARRIS ACADEMY OCKENDON POST 16 SUCCESS 2020
Harris Academy Ockendon Sixth Form students received a fantastic set of A-level and Vocational results in the summer of 2020. After what had been an exceptionally challenging year, all the staff at the academy were incredibly proud.
A-level outcomes were the best ever, with three quarters of all entries being awarded a C grade and over a third being awarded a B grade or above. The average A-level grade for all entries was a C with students on average achieving over a third of a grade higher than their target.
Under normal circumstances, this result would have placed the academy well above the national average - a remarkable achievement.
Students performed particularly well in disciplines such as Art, Economics and Financial Studies, where the average grade achieved was a B, and English Language and Literature, History, Law, Religious Studies, Psychology and Sociology where the average grade achieved was a C+, demonstrating strong performances in demanding subjects.
Our Vocational students performed to an exceptionally high standard, achieving an average grade of Distinction. Students performed particularly well in BTEC Sport, and Enterprise and Entrepreneurship, in which all students on average performed at least half a grade better than expected, making exceptional progress.
The Academy’s notable successes included:
- Luca Sargeant who achieved A*A*A in Law, Philosophy and Ethics, and Psychology and went on to read Law at The London School of Economics
- Jordan France who achieved BBC in English Language and Literature, Law and Sociology and went on to read Law at Anglia Ruskin University
- Millie Jeyes who achieved BBB in English Language and Literature, Philosophy and Ethics, and Psychology and went on to read Law at London South Bank University
- George Mower who achieved BBC in Accounting, Economics and Mathematics and went on to complete a higher-level apprenticeship
- Aimee Downes who achieved D*D*D in BTEC Sport and went on to Further Education College to study Hair and Beauty
Ms Rainey, the Academy’s Principal, said:
“In a year like no other, students at Harris Academy Ockendon have gained great results. These results are a testament to the hard work of students and staff, and the consistent approach of the academy. Against a very challenging backdrop the hard work and dedication of students has shone through. Students have not had the Year 13 they imagined but they can look forward proudly to a bright future.”
