STUDENTS are celebrating achieving a 100 per cent pass rate in their A Levels at Flixton Girls Sixth Form.

The school has again beaten the national figure of 97.6 per cent, with every student achieving or exceeding their targets.

Head Girl Emily Bates said: “I am so proud of everyone, we worked hard and got the results we deserved.”

Emily gained A*A*B and will be studying Urban Planning at the University of Liverpool.

Deputy Head Girl Michelle Galliani said: “I can’t believe I have achieved my dream of studying Biomedical Sciences, I am so happy!”

Michelle transferred to Flixton at the age of 12, unable to speak any English, and went on to achieve excellent results at GCSE and A Level. Earlier in the year, she also became the European Tae Kwondo champion.

Nyla McKenna, Head of Sixth Form, said: “I am really proud of all the girls but the main thing is that they all achieved or exceeded their targets.

"We take very special care of each and every girl at Flixton Girls Sixth Form, providing a unique level of support to ensure that every student may achieve her potential regardless of the tough issues faced by so many young people today”.

Headteacher and CEO of the Healthy Learning Trust, Julie Hazeldine, added: “Our reason for setting up our Sixth Form was to ensure that we are able to support each and every girl to fulfil her potential and achieve her life’s ambition.

"We do this through small teaching groups, our special relationships with the girls and their families, through excellent teaching and the wonderful staff.

"Our teachers go above and beyond to support and build confidence and resilience amongst the students."

Amy Butcher, who is going to study Law at Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU), said: "I still can't believe I got a Grade B in my English! I am so grateful for all the support from our teachers!"

The Health and Social Care BTEC Diploma course has also been highly successful with 75 per cent gaining the very top grades.

Many of the girls, together with a large proportion of the A Level cohort, are going on to health and medical related degree courses, including Maths, Chemistry, Nursing, Biomedical Sciences and Psychology.
