The Island Innovation VI Form Campus, shared between Medina and Carisbrooke Colleges, was awash with success last Thursday as an excellent set of A-level results was delivered.

The majority of students obtained places at their first choice of university and all of the students applying for medical school and Oxford and Cambridge universities achieved the required grades.

Five A* grades for Jana Hueppe
Some of the individual highlights included Jana Hueppe with five A* grades who will be reading Natural Sciences at Cambridge, Holly Freeborn whose A* and two A grades will take her to Oxford to read English, Misha Cooke secured four A* grades and Molly Rolf has accepted her place at Cambridge University.

Over 40% of all grades between A* – B
Results are particularly strong in English, Maths, History, Fashion and Art and the number of high grades has increased in all areas with over 40% of all grades between A* – B.

Director of VI Form Karen Begley said,

“I am extremely proud of the achievements of these fabulous young adults and all of the staff who have supported them in getting these excellent grades.”

Headteachers Nathan Thomas (Medina College) and Peter Shaw (Carisbrooke College) highlighted the increasing success of the joint sixth form,

“Our collaborative arrangements provide students with amazing opportunities for study after Year 11. It really is the jewel in the crown of our federation and this set of results is the proof.”

So it seems that Island children can achieve good results when taught properly. Can we draw a conclusion from this??

We should really be asking what conclusion we can draw from the schools failing to mention that the UK national average for A* – B grades is 52.3%?

Congratulations to the students who have done well – but these results are not what they are claimed to be.
