St Francis Xavier’s College (SFX) is celebrating a successful A-Level results day.

The class of 2017 have worked extremely hard over the past two years to achieve amazing results.

At a time of great uncertainty and change in the world of education, SFX achieved an excellent A Level pass rate, with a third of all A Level grades securing A* – B and a 100% BTEC pass rate, with some two thirds of BTEC grades recorded at Distinction*/Distinction.

The vast majority of students secured places at the university of their choice, studying subjects ranging from Architecture to Astrophysics.

They will now go on to study at leading universities across the country, such as Kings College, Sheffield, Durham, Birmingham and Lancaster and our home Universities; The University of Liverpool, Liverpool John Moore’s University and Liverpool Hope University.  We are also celebrating the successes of young people who are starting life in employment and a broad range of apprenticeships and training opportunities.

Among those celebrating their A-Level results were David Comerford , who achieved A*A*A and will be studying History at Lancaster University,  Thomas Howard, who will be studying Classics at Kings College, London, Joseph Mcgowan who gained a perfect Three Distinction* at BTEC, Michael Goodwin, who achieved ABB and is going to study Pharmacy at Liverpool John Moore’s University, Ellie Barlow, who is going to study Chemistry at Liverpool University, with A*BC, and Callum Bissett, who worked incredibly hard and achieved  a grade A in Art and Distinction* at BTEC to go on to study Architecture at The University of Liverpool.

Gez Flowers, Head of School, says: “Results day is always a great opportunity to share in students’ success and we wish them good luck as they take their next steps.

“The A-Level results today are testament to the hard work of our sixth formers, and the dedication of our encouraging teachers.”

“Congratulations to the class of 2017, we are very proud of them and are excited to see what they go on to achieve.”
