We at Oaklands Catholic School and Sixth Form College in Waterlooville are once again delighted with this year’s excellent GCSE and A Level results, and we are incredibly proud of all of our students.
The school’s Mathematics and Science GCSE results have reached new heights, confirming that Oaklands is the best place to complete STEM subjects. This follows on from a similar performance in these subjects at A Level.
Humanities subjects also continue to excel, with 87% achieving a Grade 4+ (old C Grade) in RE. This is the first year where all GCSE subjects have reformed.
A fantastic 95% of pupils achieved Grade 4+ (old C Grade) in English, compared with 83% in 2018, and in Mathematics 86% achieved a Grade 4+ (old C Grade) compared with 73% in 2018.
The school has been commended by the local authority for a stunning performance in English. This puts Oaklands well above the initial national figures for 2019.
At A Level the results were phenomenal with a 99.7% pass rate. Despite the complexity of A Levels, the number of A and A* grades has risen to 22% compared with 17% last year. The number of grades at A* to C continued at a high level of 71%, compared with 62% last year. Over 10% of students achieved three or more A grades or higher. A number of students achieved straight A* grades.
A significant number of students have returned to Oaklands Sixth Form; Maths, Science and Humanities are popular choices. From our A Level cohort, students from Oaklands go on to study Chemistry, Physics, Engineering and Medicine alongside those that take a modern apprentice route with employers who offer engineering, business and finance.
GCSE students want to emulate this success, so they return to Oaklands knowing they will receive outstanding support.
The results are a credit to the hard work of students and teachers alike. It is fantastic to see the progress made by many of our students from entry into Year 7 through to Year 13. The results again prove that at Key Stage 4 and Sixth Form, Oaklands is a fantastic choice for students whether they have an interest in STEM subjects, Humanities, Art and Design, Linguistics, English, RE, Physical Education or Social Sciences.
