A Level Results 2018

Salisbury 6th Form College (S6C) students have once again achieved some fantastic results in their A Level exams. This year, S6C sees its third cohort complete their studies and move on to university, apprenticeships and employment and once again the pass rate is excellent.


S6C would particularly like to celebrate the outstanding results of the following students who all achieved an A* in their A Level results:

  • Rachel Moody
  • Melissa Morton
  • Claudio Rapisarda
  • Joana Costa Torres


Claudio Rapisarda, Jasmin Rogers, and Thomas Brown also achieved an A* in their Extended Project Qualification, an independent research project which universities favour. Claudio has secured a place at the University of Manchester to study Aerospace Engineering, Jasmin has secured a place at Bournemouth University to study Environmental Science, and Thomas has secured a place at the University of Exeter to study History. Vocational students have also performed well this year with Chloe Bishops’ results standing out with D*D*D*.


Simon Firth, Principal, says “What pleases me so much about the results this year is the progress made by all students – they’ve all done really well, and we’re celebrating the success of both our A Level students who are receiving results today but also our vocational students. Most of our students will be going to university and we’d like to wish them all the best of luck in their future studies. It’s a pleasing day for us, I’m absolutely delighted, it’s another important milestone as we continue to grow. We’re now part of the Magna Learning Partnership with other schools in the city, we’re excited about our future as this new partnership starts to join up the thinking across Salisbury which is really good for us and most of all is really good for our students.”


Around a fifth of students who secured a university place will be going to a Russell Group university including University of Bristol, Cardiff University, University of Exeter, University of Leeds, Durham University, University of Southampton and University of Manchester. Students also secured places on competitive courses such as Midwifery, Cyber Security and Forensic Computing, Earth and Ocean Science, Law at University of Southampton, Aerospace Engineering, Environmental Science and Biochemistry. Students have also secured employment and apprenticeships in a variety of sectors including childcare and veterinary nursing.
