Sixth Form vs Staff Hockey Match
This year the staff were victorious with a 3 - 0 win. The students put up a brave fight, but it was not to be their day. Well done to everyone who took part, the rain held off and it was a fun afternoon for all.
Charity Sky-Dive - 30 September 2016
Well Done Annie !
Every year, the current Sixth Form Student Leadership Team
select a charity close to their hearts that they would like to raise money for
and support. This year, we selected the local charity: Hop, Skip and Jump, in
Swindon. This incredible charity provides immediate respite care for children
and young adults with disabilities. Not only does this allow them to take part
in a range of indoor and outdoor activities that help to build their
self-confidence and social skills but it also provides vital respite to their families.
This allows the families to get the well-deserved break that they need and I
personally have experience of this support being life-changeing.
As a Team we have been organising multiple fundraising
events in order to raise money for this amazing charity and will continue to do
so until the end of our time at Sixth Form. Being the mad individual I am, I
wanted to do something a bit different to raise money so I decided to face my
fear of heights and jump out of a plane 10,000 feet high. On the 30th
of September 2016, I completed a charity sky-dive for Hop, Skip and Jump and
another charity that has been extremely influential to my life: Macmillan
Cancer Support. I have been overwhelmed by the support I have received from
everyone at our school and it is this support that helped me to raise a grand
total of £2,167. I am immensely proud of this and I know that these donations
will be greatly appreciated by both charities.
A Level Results Day Photographs & Student Features
Outstanding Results 2016
RWBA would like to congratulate all our students in the Sixth Form for working incredibly hard and achieving such excellent results that students, staff and parents should be very proud of.
This year the A Level results were outstanding with:
17% achieving A*
45% A*-A grade which was way about the national figure of 25.8%.
68% achieved A*-B grades
Equally the BTEC results were also superb with 50% D*, 69% D*-D and 88% D*-M.
Both sets of results enabled our students to progress on to University (many to Russell Group Universities), Level 3 apprenticeships or directly into employment.
This year four students were successful in gaining places at Cambridge University to study veterinary science, engineering and computer science. We also have five students who have gone into medical schools at Cardiff, Leicester and St George’s in London.
At Royal Wootton Bassett Academy Sixth Form our students progress on to several different pathways with advice being given to facilitate this throughout the two years. Many students choose university whether it be Oxbridge, Russell Group or one of the many superb universities offering specialist courses. Others choose to go into employment whether it be through the apprenticeship route or directly into the workplace.
