A Level Results 2022 

Caldew School students received their 2022 A Level results today and we are delighted with the achievements of our students. 

Vicki Jackson, Headteacher, said, “I would like to congratulate all of our students on achieving excellent results this year. The last two years have been incredibly hard for students and this cohort of students were unable to sit GCSE exams in 2020 so this summer’s exams were the first external assessments that they were able to take. This makes their results a tremendous achievement and we are very proud of all our students. They have worked incredibly hard over and have shown a real determination to succeed.”

“I would also like to thank all the teachers and support staff at Caldew School for the hard work and commitment that has helped our students be so successful and to parents and carers who have worked with us in supporting their children. I am very proud to see our Year 13 students progress to the next stage of their lives, whether this be at university, on to an apprenticeship or in to the work place and I would like to take this opportunity to wish them every success.”

Mr James, Head of Sixth Form, commented, “It has been a privilege to work with this year group; they were an enthusiastic and hardworking group of students. I wish them every success in the future”

The overwhelming majority of Caldew School’s students will be able to attend their first choice university, and will study courses including the sciences, languages, mathematics, engineering, computing and the arts at some of the country’s top universities.   

Vicki Jackson added, “We are very proud of our Year 13 students and what they have achieved. They have been a wonderful year group who have shown determination, resilience and a great work ethic throughout their time at Caldew School. They fully deserve these excellent results.”
