PUPILS Wings School Notts have been celebrating their recent exam results with a 100% pass rate.
All students undertook a range of exams including GCSEs and Functional Skills and achieved an average of nine qualifications each across core subjects including Maths, Biology, Art and Design, Science and English.
As well as in academic subjects, there were also successes in more vocational subjects such as BTECs in Health and Social Care, Sports and Food Tech from the more than 20 different subjects and meaningful qualifications offered at the school.
All of the students from Wings School Nottingham will go on to undertake further education, employment or training including college placements in health and social care and to study for A-levels.
Principal Andy Cutts McKay said : “Our students’ achievements are a fantastic testament to their hard work and determination to do well, which they undoubtedly do.
“We offer a wide range of subjects with a range of formal qualifications available and these wonderful achievements by our students cover a wide range of core subjects and qualifications in both academic and vocational subjects.
“These achievements are a great foundation which the young people can build from and help give the young people the tools they need to continue to achieve as they move on from school and into the world of further education, training and employment, which we’re delighted to say all of our leavers will do doing.”
Wings School Nottingham is a residential school and provides education and care for children with social, emotional and mental health difficulties. It is part of the Kedleston Group. Kedleston has a range of residential and day schools across the UK and pupils from High Peak School, Olsen House School in Liverpool, Wings School Cumbria, Arc Schools Ansley and Old Arley in Warwickshire, and Leaways School in London sat a range of GCSE and other examinations in a range of subjects.
The Group is this year celebrating its 13th birthday and the exam results have certainly been reason to celebrate as schools across the Group have seen their students achieve almost 600 formal qualifications including GCSEs and BTECs across more than 20 subjects during 2018-19.
These successes and qualifications across the Group have seen 100% of leavers go on to further education, apprenticeships or employment with more than 75% going on to further education in a mainstream college.
There they will work towards careers in diverse areas including animal care, health and beauty, performing arts, construction, game design, travel and tourism, health and social care, carpentry, media. Other pupils are moving on to Sixth Form colleges where they will study for A-levels.
