Students at LVS Oxford are celebrating after an excellent set of exam results that have allowed many of them to take up courses at mainstream colleges in September. The results included an 8 (high A grade) in English language to maintain the school’s 100% A* - C record in the subject since it began offering GCSEs in 2016.
Notably, the 8 in English language GCSE came from a Year 10 student taking the exam a year early. He will now stay on at LVS Oxford to complete a further seven GCSEs in 2019, boosted by the confidence of his excellent achievement.
LVS Oxford also celebrated notable success in its range of BTEC courses. For the second consecutive year, the school achieved 100% attainment in all BTEC courses, helping to prepare students for independent futures in further education destinations and employment.
Having made academic progress and had their confidence and social interaction skills developed at LVS Oxford, a number of students are now able to move on to mainstream further education.
Also looking forward to moving on towards an independent future is Ethan, who is going to study at college. His grandfather John Herrington said: “Ethan has achieved a lot with LVS Oxford. He has become so much more relaxed and confident. The school has really brought him out of himself and developed his personality which has meant he has been able to do so much more."
LVS Oxford Head of School Louisa Allison-Bergin said: “We are delighted that once again the hard work of our students coupled with the personal attention, understanding and skill of our expert staff has resulted in yet another excellent GCSE result and 100% attainment in BTECs. Our ethos is about learning without limits and it is inspiring to see how our young people have grown at LVS Oxford to the point that they are able to take responsibility for their lives after they leave school."
We aim to provide them with a 'tool box for life' - a variety of skills and coping mechanisms that they can take with them in to the future.
