A-Levels: Worthing’s Our Lady of Sion School enjoys 99 per cent pass rate

Students celebrated top results at Our Lady of Sion School in Worthing today (Thursday, August 18), with over a fifth of the year group gaining at least three A*-A grades.

99 per cent of exams sat at the faith school were passed, with 81.3 per cent of exam candidates achieving grades A*-B.

The combined total of A* and A grades amounted to 45.8 per cent of all results.

Head teacher Michael Scullion said he was thrilled with the results.

“I am very very pleased,” he said.

“It shows how hard both the pupils and the teachers have worked this year.”

The sterling results are the third consecutive year of almost 100 per cent A-level pass rate.

“I think the success rate is down to the atmosphere we have here at the school,” said Mr Scullion.

“It is a very happy atmosphere, and very supportive. I think the children work best in that sort of environment.”

Two pupils from Our Lady of Sion are to attend Oxbridge universities next year.

Myffy Cairns, 18, from Broadwater, has gained a place at Homerton College in Cambridge to study natural sciences. She gained two A* and two As, in Biology, PE, Chemistry and Maths.

She said: “I am really pleased and really excited about going to Cambridge. It will be hard work but I want to go into research when I am finished.”
