Liverpool Life Sciences UTC’s average grade at A Level has again improved this year, with year-on-year progress every year since we opened in 2013. It also marked our principal Ian Parry’s final year before moving on to a new challenge…
As we celebrate our fifth year of results, we’re no longer a new school or an untested school.
Nearly 90% of our chemistry students (89%) gained an A*-C in their A level this year, whilst 87% of our BTEC pupils studying applied science got DDD (distinction) or above, alongside 79% of our BTEC health and social care students.
The average grade for our vocational courses was a distinction, and this is also the first year we’ve offered a criminology course, with 75% of students gaining an A*–C grade in its inaugural year. We’ve have become experienced and successful in delivering specialist quality academic and career-focused provision to the young people we teach.
We also deliver consistently on the promise of exceptional destinations in the sector – this year including medicine, nursing, midwifery, biomedical, engineering, and the very best degree apprenticeships with business partners like Unilever, in our students’ results.
A number of our students have also secured places at LJMU, doing amazingly well in their interviews. Courtney White gained a D*D*D (starred distinction), and will study midwifery next year; Zoe Halbert also gained D*D*D, and will head to LJMU to study paramedics.
Ryan Tindsley will also head to the University of Liverpool following his A*A*A in maths, further maths and physics A levels, where he’ll study physics.
