A Level Results Success

The McAuley Catholic High School and Sixth Form would like to congratulate our Year 13 Class of 2017 who achieved a remarkable set of results today. An increase of 2% in A* grades, an increase of 4% in A*-A grades - both of which are above the national average - and an increase of 7% in A*-B grades all contributed to making these the best results that the school has achieved in a number of years. The percentage of A level A* - E passes has bucked the national trend, increasing to 99.5%.
The Level 3 Value Added score is also 'statistically significantly' above the national average and reflects the outstanding status of the McAuley Sixth Form.
This remarkable set of students can be very proud of the way they have upheld the traditions of McAuley and we are delighted with their academic achievements. It is great to see that all their hard work has paid off in such fine style.
There have been a number of notable achievements in a variety of subject areas reflecting the professional excellence of all our teachers and our Sixth Form team who have contributed so much to the success of the students in their care.
We also acknowledge the support given to the students by their parents and guardians during their time in McAuley.
It is these home/school partnerships that are the strength of the school.
Nothing is achieved without endeavour and our students and staff have worked phenomenally hard over the last two years, dealing admirably with the vast changes in post 16 education, to make these results possible and they reflect the high level of commitment to study that we strongly encourage at McAuley.
Our Sixth Formers are a positive example to us all showing that excellence can be achieved by anyone, no matter where the starting point, by working hard together and believing that nothing is impossible!
These excellent results mean that the vast majority of our university applicants have secured places at their preferred choice, many on competitive courses including medicine and dentistry at Redbrick institutions; while others have successfully secured apprenticeships and employment.
This unique set of students can also be proud of the contribution they have made to our school community, both those who have been at McAuley since year 7, and the many who joined us for Sixth Form from other schools, both within and outside the Doncaster area. They have been a credit to themselves and to McAuley through their role modelling of behaviour, leadership and through their involvement in extra-curricular, fundraising and in-school activities.
All our Sixth Formers take with them our best wishes on their journeys to success and we look forward to hearing many great things from them in the years ahead.
