We are really proud of our Sixth Form students, who have worked extremely hard to achieve fantastic A Level results.
Our West Coast Sixth Form (which is a collaboration between The Whitehaven Academy and Workington Academy) and William Howard School have welcomed students into school today to collect and celebrate their results.
The Headteacher of West Coast Sixth Form and Workington Academy, Mark Bedford said, “Our students have reflected our ethos of ‘Be the Best You Can Be’, as they strive for their own personal success. We are incredibly proud of the students who have achieved the results required to take their next steps, whether that be university, an apprenticeship or employment and we wish them well for the future.”
Nigel Youngman, Headteacher of The Whitehaven Academy commented, “We would like to recognise the individual success stories below and congratulate all the young people on their achievements today.”
Kath Pigdon, Headteacher at William Howard School, added, “This cohort did not sit formal GCSE examinations due to the Covid-19 pandemic, and so for many of our students, this would have been the first time they have sat external examinations. They have coped with this intense pressure admirably and, here at William Howard School, we are so proud of the way our students have risen to the challenge.”
