Key Stage 5 Results Press Release


Millom School students are celebrating their A-level and vocational qualification results with some very pleasing achievements. Millom School is proud to report a high level of success, which has allowed our students to progress on to a range of first choice university courses and apprenticeships.

Matt Savidge, Headteacher, said “Congratulations to our Year 13 students on getting such a fantastic set of results this year. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, this was the first time that these students had faced an external exam season and they approached this with incredible maturity and their achievements are all the more special given the challenges they faced while studying over the last two years.

Results day is also about the next steps in young people’s lives and I am pleased that these results have enabled our students to go onto their university of choice or onto apprenticeships.

Their results reflect their hard work, their dedication and the support they received from their teachers and families. I am so proud of them and wish them all every success in the future.”

Colin Nunn, Director of Learning and Standards for the Sixth Form, said, “The students have worked hard to achieve solid grades in their chosen qualifications and have secured first choice places at universities or places on apprenticeships with local companies. A number of students have performed particularly well. However, I should like to recognise in particular the achievements of Emily Swarbrick, Olivia Walker, Chelsea Loughran and Alex Brearey, who secured strong grades in a range of different subjects. From our Year 12 cohort, four students, in particular, performed exceptionally well in their extended project qualification: Lucy Ashburner, Rebekah Clayton, Carl Peck and Alexander Rhodes.”

Mr Nunn went on to say “There have been some very good performances allowing students to secure their place at university or on an apprenticeship programme. Congratulations to all students and I wish them the very best of luck for the future whether in higher education, apprenticeships or the beginning of their working life”.

Elsa Mason, Chair of Governors, added, “I’m delighted to see the achievements of our Millom Students and how this will enable them to follow their aspirations into their university places and apprenticeships. I wish each student every success and hope they take the joy of learning with them as they spring board from their time with Millom School.”
