Rated as the seventh best state sixth form in the country, the Ofsted ‘Outstanding’ Sir Isaac Newton Sixth Form is celebrating another year of triumphs as 50% of A-Level grades achieved are A*-A with 9 pupils off to Oxbridge! As the UK’s first specialist STEM college, academia is at the core of Sir Isaac Newton Sixth Form and overall the college has seen 87% achieve A*-C - a monumental set of grades at any time, but even more outstanding following the disruptions around the pandemic.

Both staff and students have worked incredibly hard to ensure no opportunities have been missed and today’s results are a testament of that hard work and dedication, I am extremely proud. I would like to congratulate the students on their achievements and wish them every success as they move on to the next steps in their academic careers, having achieved some fantastic placements at university.” 

The pioneering Maths and Science sixth form college has seen exceptional results across a range of highly academic subjects with incredibly high numbers of  A*-A grades - Further Maths 65%, Maths 52%, Chemistry 49%, Computer Science 47%, Biology 45%, Physics 44%.
