Students at the multi award winning, specialist school for young people with autism, LVS Hassocks, are celebrating a range of fantastic results from this year’s GCSE’s, BTEC’s and other qualifications.
Year 9 & 10 students demonstrated resilience and hard work after sitting GCSE Art early and achieving 100% pass rate with a range of grades from 6 - 4.
The specialist school provides an education for young people with autism where students can learn, grow, and achieve. LVS Hassocks teaches students how to live independently as adults in a calming and appropriate learning environment, through not only academic progress but with access to a range of qualifications.
Some highlights include:
Many students with autism can suffer with high levels of anxiety, so it is important to acknowledge the challenges that come with taking part in assessments and examinations. This is an amazing achievement.
School Principal, Jen Weeks, said: "We are extremely proud of our Year 10 and Year 9 students who have sat their Art GCSE early and their grades are a testament to the hard work and effort they have put into their work. Students from across the school have sat a range of qualifications, including our Year 8's completing their Sports Leaders Level 1, Year 9 and 10 students developing their independent skills through completion of the Level 1 BTEC Home Cooking qualification and the many students who showed a range of skills through the completion of their Silver or Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Awards."
A-Level students are also celebrating a 100% pass rate in their first ever Art and Extended Project Qualification results.
To achieve an EPQ (Extended Project Qualification) the students had to complete a 5000 word independent essay on a topic of their choice which ranged from YouTube, HS2, The Krays and 9/11. This demonstrates brilliant independent working and literacy skills.
Jen Weeks commented: “This is a huge achievement for our students, and all of us at LVS Hassocks are so very proud of them all for their hard work and dedication to their studies enabling them to succeed. It is so exciting to see our students achieve such fantastic A-Levels.”
