Sixth Form students at ArtsEd celebrate the School’s best ever BTEC results with a superb 100% Triple Distinction and above (equivalent to three A Levels at A and A* grade).

The A Levels saw a 100% pass rate with 39% of all A Level results at A* / A – which is another year-on-year increase of the highest possible grades, and ArtsEd’s highest figure on record. Overall 68% of all results were A* – B, which once again is significantly above the national average.

ArtsEd’s Sixth Form leavers will be enjoying a summer break before heading off to a range of vocational destinations including; ALRA, Bird, Laine Theatre Arts, LAMDA, London Studio Centre, Mountview, RADA, Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, Trinity Laban, and of course ArtsEd, with others choosing top choice university places, including Goldsmiths, Newcastle and York.

Those continuing their training at ArtsEd include students on both the BA in Musical Theatre, and Acting.


Adrian Blake, Headteacher for ArtsEd’s Day School and Sixth Form said:

“I’m really proud of the students, and staff, who have worked together so successfully to raise the bar yet again and secure such fantastic results.

“It’s the combination of talented individual minds meeting young talent here at ArtsEd that creates a truly dynamic environment for teaching and learning. Our dedicated staff build warm and constructive learning relationships with pupils, creating a strong ethos of nurture and individualism enabling each student to flourish and make a success of adult life. I wish each and every one of our students the very best for their continuing studies here at ArtsEd and beyond”

Sixth Form Student, Joshua Orpin said:

“I feel so overwhelmed – especially with my A Level Dance result, where I achieved two grade boundaries above what I expected. Being at ArtsEd has been the best experience. Coming from an amateur drama background, I came here with no training and have learned so much. I wouldn’t change my experience for the world and feel very lucky.

“It’s been a busy and stressful journey, but the training and support from everyone here makes ArtsEd the amazing place that it is. I’m really looking forward to continuing my training at ArtsEd on the BA Musical Theatre course.”

Sixth Form student, Niamh Bennett said:

“I’m so happy with my results. I didn’t expect to get an A* in A Level Drama – I couldn’t have done that without the amazing and dedicated teachers here at ArtsEd. The training here has been very different – there have been plenty of surprises, and it has shaped me into the person I am today.

“ArtsEd is such a supportive place, it feels like one big family and is such a great stepping stone for the future. Now I can’t wait to start the BA Acting course at Academy of Live and Recorded Arts (ALRA) in September.”

ISI Report: “The teaching is excellent – it is a principal factor in the high levels of achievement at all levels”.
