'A' Level Results 16th August 2018

Watch Video Students and staff at St Mark’s West Essex Catholic School are today celebrating another great year, with students once again achieving excellent results, with many going on to universities, often the first in their family. Another superb pass rate was achieved with 95% of all A level examinations passed and 60% with grades A*-C and 99% of students getting into a university / course of their choice. A particular feature of these results is that all students, whatever their ability, have achieved well and made fantastic progress, with many overcoming difficult personal circumstances to do so. To achieve these results in light of the recent government reforms which have seen examinations become more challenging and demanding, is testimony to the skill of our teachers, the work of the students and the success of our Sixth Form. A delighted Headteacher, Elaine Heaphy, congratulated both students and staff. “We are delighted for the students, they should be proud of their achievements and we wish them all the best for their future endeavours.  Certainly, I would like to put on record my thanks to students, staff and parents for what was an exemplary team effort. Our Sixth Form draws from all the other schools in Harlow and we would congratulate these schools for their work in successfully getting these students through GCSE studies and giving them the grounding for A Level study.  We are sure that they will share in this success.  We look forward to welcoming the ‘new’ Year 12 cohort in September”. There were many examples of outstanding individual performances.  These include amongst many others: Jasmine Warwick - A*/A/A - reading International Management at Warwick University Halle Andrews-Clark - A/A/A - reading Biochemistry at Southampton University Taylah Andrews-Clark  - A/A/A - reading Biochemistry at Southampton University Lauren Bone - A/A/A - reading Medicine at York Medical School University Rose Joseph - A*/B/B - reading Economics and Maths at Surrey University Fleur Cracknell - A/A/B - reading Criminology, Policing & Forensics at West London University Thomas Festa - A/A/A - reading Economics at Loughborough University Ruchi Masih - A/A/B - reading Biological Sciences at Leicester University Sarah Van Der Lith - A/B/B - Gap year, working in Malawi Aimee Cheung - B/B/B - reading Psychology with Education Studies at Warwick University Abigail Willis - B/B/B - reading Law at Bristol University

St Mark’s Top Of The Harlow Schools’ League Table Again For English Baccalaureate

St Mark’s top of the table for English Baccalaureate achievement for yet another year.   We are delighted to inform you that earlier this term the published Government figures show that St Mark’s has come top of the Harlow schools’ league table again for the number of pupils achieving the English Baccalaureate.  St Mark’s achieved 30% with the National Average being 21.3% (Harlow average 19%). These are outstanding results which have been achieved by a complete cross-section of young people.  St Mark’s is a local comprehensive which offers places to all young people living within the area regardless of academic ability.  Examination achievement is regarded as an important aspect of the education we provide but not necessarily the only important quality. We believe that a number of factors have contributed to this success, of which the hard work of the pupils themselves, the support of their parents and the skill and dedication of our teachers are the most significant.  These excellent results demonstrate the effectiveness of high quality teaching coupled with team work.  St Mark’s has achieved a consistently good standard of examination results for many years now, but we are not complacent and will seek to build on this achievement. The impact of our work with our young people is clearly demonstrated by the number of pupils who have received offers to universities, following their UCAS applications. The tables also highlight the greater than average number of our sixth form pupils who go on to further education. As a school we give every pupil an opportunity to have life chances that in other schools they may not have been given,  These results, and those of last year, show that pupils at St Mark’s, whatever their ability: Are more likely to be studying the English Baccalaureate (EBacc) Are more likely to achieve the English Baccalaureate Are more likely to be studying GCSEs than ‘equivalent’ courses Are more likely to achieve 4+ in English and Maths More likely to stay in education More likely to go on to study at University I would like to congratulate all those involved in achieving this wonderful outcome.
