We were very proud to share the success of the PACA Year 13 cohort who have passed their Level 3 courses, achieving some exceptional results in 2019.
Courses with particular successes included Sport and Sport Science, for which 75% of entries achieved the top Distinction* grade. Our avaerage A-Level grade was D+; for Applied General courses it was Pass+ and for Technical Level courses the average pass was at Distinction level. Progress and other results data for 2019 is published annually in the first quarter of next year.
From this cohort we have two students who made a particular contribution to both PACA and the Aldridge Cricket Academy: Luke Chafer who captained the cricket team who has secured a place at Glasgow University, and Ariana Dowse who was a member of the Hampshire Women’s team that won the Royal London One Day Competition in 2018 and playing for Hampshire Women and Southern Vipers RDC this year.
Principal Mark Poston commented: “We are delighted for our students who have achieved a really impressive set of outcomes and who have made the most of the opportunities that PACA and the Aldridge Academies have on offer. I would also like to make special mention of three other students (pictured below) whose results showed great progress in their time at PACA. Tremaine Brindley and Saul Crichlow joined the Sixth Form not having previously achieved passing grades at GCSE, but went on to successfully complete their resits and passed all of their Level 3 qualifications. Kieran Ross who, as a young carer, had to manage his work to complete his college courses while also being the stable figure in his household.”
