Woldgate School and Sixth Form College in Pocklington, is today celebrating another year of excellent exam results, which are significantly above the national averages for 2023. With this year’s grading going back to pre-pandemic standards and an estimated 100,000 less A and A* grades being awarded, these results are particularly impressive as they are better than the sixth form’s 2019 outcomes.

Headteacher Luke Sloman said,

“At Woldgate School, we pride ourselves on knowing and caring for each of our pupils and students as individuals and giving them the support they need on their individual journeys to success. This year’s great results are testament to both our students’ hard work and the care and dedication of my talented colleagues. I would also like to thank parents and carers for all the support they have given their children, and our school.”

Rosie Kennedy, who has been at Woldgate School since Year 7, achieved three A* grades in French, Maths and Chemistry, and is heading to Oxford University to study French and linguistics.

Emily Hare achieved the A* and two A grades she needed in Biology, Maths and Chemistry to study medicine at Newcastle University, and spoke about the difficulties of sitting for A Levels in 2023 without having done GCSEs.
She said,

“It’s been really hard because we didn’t have actual exam experience. But we had two sets of A Level mocks which helped. I’m so glad I stayed on at Woldgate for Sixth Form”
