A-Level Results 2006
Once again students at Ellesmere College are celebrating top A Level achievement. The
School's academic team is delighted that students have achieved such excellent grades
and are able to move on to the universities of their choice. Overall performance was
excellent and there have been some top class individual results with an overall pass rate of 99%.
A quarter of pupils achieved A Grades and 39% A/B grades.
Whilst heartfelt congratulations go to all students there were some particularly notable
performances that are worthy of specific mention.
"The Magnificent Seven" clocking up a string of A grades were:-
- Kim Fawcett - 4 A grades - Nantwich
- Miles Howitt-Dring - 4 A grades - Penley
- Matthew White - 4 A grades (plus a B and a D) - Shrewsbury
- Daniel Jones - 3 A grades - Whitchurch
- Ben Russell - 3 A grades - Kinnerley
- Michael Thornhill - 3 A grades - Holywell
- James Heald - 3 A grades - Wrexham
19 out of 21 subjects saw 100% pass rate
A large number of students achieved high grades and boys at the college performed particularly well, against the national trend.
Mr Brendan Wignall, Headmaster, said "It is always pleasing to see our students enjoy
the reward of their hard work. We pride ourselves on helping young people to achieve
academic success whilst at the same time developing the individual. They deserve this
success. Credit must also go to the excellent work of our teaching staff and of course to
parents for their support and encouragement."
