Congratulations to all of our students for an incredible set of GCSE results this year, in the trickiest of circumstances.
The highlights include:
64% students achieved a level 4 or above in English and maths GCSE and 36% students achieved a level 5 or above
70% achieved a level 4 or above in maths GCSE
81% achieved a level 4 or above in English GCSE
100% of our students achieved a level 4 or above in all three separate sciences
94% achieved a level 5 or above in biology, 79% in chemistry and 85% in physics
Standout results include Wiam who achieved 999 in separate science GCSEs; Kim, who achieved 9 in maths and 9 in chemistry; Katie and Macauley achieved a 7 or above in all subjects and Alexandra secured 8s in maths, sciences, geography, business and a 9 in psychology.
This year has not had the sort of results day we’re used to. It’s a bit more difficult, watching as the exam system faces the challenge of a year without exams. Whilst it looks like it may well be, we can’t currently say that these are our best results ever, or talk with certainty about our percentage of students achieving top grades in each subject.
But we know about some of the incredible destinations our young people have been able to secure. For example:
- Adult nursing degree at Manchester Metropolitan University
- Medicine degree at Cardiff University
- Biological sciences degree at University of Liverpool
- Mechanical engineering degree at Liverpool John Moores University
- Computer science degree at the University of York
100% A level pass rate
100% A* – B Eng Lit and Further Maths
100% A* – C Art, Computing and Geography
Many more of our students also secured their first choice university place at incredible institutions to study brilliant courses. Principal Jill Davies says: “I can tell you that our teacher assessed grades were devised using precise assessment data, rigorous application of the process and indicate to us that our year on year improvements are still marching forward at pace.”
Huge congratulations go to all students including:
Sam, who achieved A*AA in physics, maths and computing A-levels
Shane, who secured A*ABA in maths, chemistry, biology and EPQ
Will, who secured D*DD in BTEC applied science and an A in his EPQ
Lydia, who achieved D*D*D in BTEC applied science
Erin, who secured D*D*D in BTEC health and social care
Callum achieved A*, A*, A English Literature, History, Psychology
Jack achieved A*, A, A Biology, Chemistry, Physics
Samrudhi achieved AAAB, Biology, Chemistry, Maths, Physics
Students at Liverpool Life Sciences UTC recorded their best ever set of GCSE results in 2019.
70% of students have achieved an 4 or above in both English and Maths; 99% of students got a 4 or above in all 3 separate sciences; 100% of students scored a level 4 or above in combined sciences; whilst 80% of students achieved a level 9 in GCSE Arabic.
Life Sciences UTC student Serena Knockaert has taken the first steps towards a career in medicine this morning with 7s in English literature and language, chemistry & physics alongside 8s in maths, biology, psychology & Spanish. She’ll study chemistry, biology and psychology next!
Amina Mohamed celebrated with her parents after receiving her results which included five A*s and an A, including maths, biology, chemistry and physics. She is staying with us for sixth form to pursue her dream of a career in medicine.
Student Nour Al-Tarsha will be heading for sixth form at the UTC in September having received GCSE results including three As & five A*s – alongside her A in A level business last week. She’ll be studying A levels in biology, chemistry, maths and Arabic.
UTC student Jay Lloyd was also beaming as he picked up his GCSE results. ‘I think I’ve done quite well,’ he says. ‘English is my favourite subject and I got two 6s. My plan is to study English and law next.’
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.
