Students at Angmering Sixth Form are celebrating an excellent set of A-level results this year with a 100 per cent pass rate for the second year in a row.
The proportion of entries that have gained A* to B is 40 per cent, a rise from 37 per cent last year.
Tony Kerrison, Director of Studies for Post 16 Education stated: “This is an excellent set of results, and reflects the hard work and commitment of our students and staff. This is a difficult year for university admissions with fees set to rise in 2012, places are at a real premium, so I am delighted to see that the majority of our students have received offers from their 1st choice universities this morning”.
Students celebrating this morning include Emma Field with an A* in Mathematics, together with a grade A in Economics and Physics and is going on to study Maths and Physics at the University of Bath.

David Brixey, Headteacher, said “Our Sixth form continues to grow and improve. We are proud to be able to offer a full range of A levels which enable students to aim at more academic subjects at the best universities. We are also proud of our students who choose a more vocational route for example, Kyle Tooley will be going on to study Complementary medicine at Brighton University and Matt Edwards will be going to Chichester to study Sport and Fitness Management. Matt was also part of our very successful basketball academy.”
