Empowering Everyone to Achieve

2018 A-level exam results

‘My first year as Headteacher at Sir William Ramsay School has been a pleasure. I have felt proud of all the staff and students, their hard work has paid off with a set of excellent results. The sixth form has developed further, with a focus on developing leadership skills and preparing young people for the world that faces them when they leave us’ said Mrs McLintock, Headteacher.

‘Our students have worked hard and been determined to succeed, it was a pleasure to see them grow over the past year to gain such well-deserved results. We look forward to hearing about their successes as they go off into the world of work or University’ said Miss Le Count the Head of Sixth Form.

Mrs McLintock has worked hard in conjunction with staff, governors and parents to evolve the culture at Sir William Ramsay over the past 12 months, feedback from students reflect positively on this change. Mrs McLintock attributes the success of the school to the hard work and dedication of the staff at Sir William Ramsay school and the students who rise to the challenges they are given.

At Sir William Ramsay School we worked hard with students to ensure they were fully prepared for the changes to the A levels and BTECs and motivated to do well.

  • A levels are now terminal, the exams are all at the end of the 2 years and are no longer divided into AS and A2 components.
  • BTEC now have a compulsory externally examined unit.
