Pocklington School sixth formers made so much academic progress in the two years after their GCSEs that their 2017 A Level results place them in the Top 15% of the country, new figures confirm.
They gained the highest average A Level grade of all schools in East Yorkshire, and their individual progress was classed as “above average” compared with similar students across England.
Headmaster Mark Ronan said: “We’re very proud of the progress our Sixth Form students made between the end of key stage 4 (GCSEs) and their A Level exams last year.
“We offer students a broad and diverse curriculum and encourage them to play to their strengths.
“We also foster their enthusiasm by encouraging and supporting an independent approach to learning.”
