We are delighted to report that the results from Huish Sixth today show that results in both academic and vocational subjects are amongst the best it has ever achieved. As well as overall success many individuals also achieved exceptionally highly. Huish Sixth continues to place students at some of the top Universities including Imperial College, UCL, Exeter, Bristol and Bath. The sixth form continues to grow in terms of both size and success with our biggest ever cohort due to start in September.
Overall we have achieved progress for our students which at the moment we calculate to be significantly above national expectations and consolidates the great results from last year which also saw Huish Sixth perform significantly beyond national expectations in progress for all.

This year’s results once again support the view that Huish Sixth is able to ensure students get fantastic results across a wide range of subjects from the Arts to Science and Sport through the Languages to Psychology and Sociology.
Vocational results were once again exceptionally strong with several students achieving Distinction and Distinction Star in Sport, Music Technology and Public services.
Practically every subject achieved a 100% A*- E rate with fourteen subjects including Art, Business Studies, Drama, French, Further Maths, German, Health and Social care, IT (BTEC and A Level), Mathematics, Media Studies, Spanish and achieving 70% or more A*- C grades.
The success is spread across a very broad range of subject areas with students going to a wide range of Universities across the Country.
Director of Huish Sixth Roger Madge commented that,
“It is fantastic to see our students doing so well again at the very highest academic levels nationally and continues Huish Episcopi Academy’s outstanding reputation for having high expectations of what each student can achieve and then supporting, challenging and inspiring every student to work hard and achieve their best. As ever, these results are a tremendous testament to both the students and staff who have all worked exceptionally hard together to achieve such fantastic results.
Once again this year group has been an outstanding mix of individuals who have come together in Huish Sixth to not only achieve exceptionally highly but also to add so much to the life of the Sixth Form as well as the wider school in terms of Art, Music, Drama and Sport.
Speaking to students it seems clear that they believe Huish Sixth has provided not only a great formal education for the students leaving today in terms of their results but also given them a strong basis in other important skills such as leadership, teamwork and cultural awareness through the wide variety of experiences and extra-curricular activities that they have been offered.
May I take this opportunity to thank parents and carers for all their support over the past two years and wish the students all the very best for their future studies.”
Unfortunately it is impossible to mention every student by name even though we do recognise the huge effort that every student has put into obtaining the best results possible.
Well done to all of our students and we wish every one of them well for the future!
