Blue Coat celebrate A level Grades

Date published: 15 August 2019

It's been another fantastic year for A level grades at Blue Coat School in Oldham, with 30% of all A Level exam entries being awarded at grade A*/A.

Six pupils clocked up an impressive 14 A* grades between them.

Headteacher Mr Higgins is attributing the school's success to the hard work of the pupils, staff and their families.

"The fact they have achieved such great results during a period of curriculum change, makes me even prouder of their accomplishments.

"Many of our pupils will now take up places on the most competitive University courses and apprenticeships across the country, and we wish them much success and happiness in their futures."

Three of their students are going to Oxbridge; Will Maloney – Oxford Worcester to study Earth science, Rehman Amjad – Cambridge St John’s to study natural science and Hannah Murray – Oxford Exeter to study economics and management.

Will Maloney told us; “I don’t really know what to say, it’s an overwhelming feeling of satisfaction and just absolute relief to be honest!

"I’m just glad that all the hard work has paid off and I’d like to thank the school and the staff for all their support”.

Rehman Amjad commented;  “I’m delighted with my results and really excited about October.  

"I can’t wait for the next few years. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time at Blue Coat and I’m pleased that all the hard work, perseverance and preparation has paid off.”
