Warwick Academy Celebrates Class Success

October 13, 2020

Warwick Academy is celebrating their “most successful University/College acceptance in recent history where 98% of their graduates achieved their first choice.”

A spokesperson said, “Each year students will apply and rank in order of preference a range of tertiary options from around the world. In this most pleasing of results 54 of the 55 graduates achieved their top choice after a summer of upheaval.

“The 55 graduates in the Class of 2020 also achieved 100% pass rates across the IB Diploma, IB Individual Subjects and BTEC Programmes. In doing so they surpassed the worldwide pass rate of 79%.

“In addition, 35% of students achieved an excellent 35 or more points. Whilst these are outstanding and headline grabbing results in themselves, the work done by the students alongside the careers team at the school resulted in this exceptional University/College first choice acceptance rate.

Principal Mr. Dave Horan said: “After a most challenging year where international examinations were cancelled and examination Boards made backtracks and U-turns this is an outstanding result from the Class of 2020.

“Whilst examination results are hugely important we also focus on other key measures. Are our students getting into the University, College or career option that is the very best for them; are they leaving Warwick Academy as well-adjusted young adults who can contribute to the society they find themselves in; and are they leaving with the skills to be effective decision makers.

“Looking at their success in navigating the Covid-19 examination environment, the resilience they have shown throughout 2020 and now their admission to wonderful tertiary institutions around the world, we believe we have hit the mark. I am very proud of all of them and this announcement celebrates all 55 of them and their achievements after a very difficult 6 months.”

“The three pathways that students can follow in the Sixth Form at Warwick Academy are allowing for flexibility and more accurate opportunities for students to ensure they get to their very best University, College or career option. Along with a broadened careers team the school is seeing the results of what is a carefully planned process.
