A-Level Results

Posted 15th August 2019

A-Level Results

Congratulations to all LCS Year 13 students who received their A Level results today.

Littleover Community School is celebrating its best ever A level results. Over a third of grades were A*-A and nearly 2 thirds of grades were A*-B with 87% of grades being C or above. The average grade was a B. These results are a significant improvement on last year and represent a fantastic achievement for our students and it is great to see the hard work of students and staff rewarded.

Over half of students achieved at least one grade A with 80% of students achieving at least one grade B or above. 2 students achieved 4 A* grades and 4 students achieved 3 A* grades with 17% of students achieving 3 or more A*/A grades. Nearly half of all students achieved three Bs or better and the overall pass rate is 100%.

Although the number of high grades is very pleasing and enables a large number of students to access the most competitive universities, courses and apprenticeships, it is important to note that there are many students throughout the ability range who have, through sheer hard work as well as natural ability, matched or exceeded their target grades, and all deserve congratulations for their achievements.

Letter to Parents from LCS Governors

Posted 28th June 2019

Letter to Parents from LCS Governors

The LCS Governing Board has sent a letter to parents of all LCS students regarding future plans for the LCS Headteacher position.

The letter can be read in full below:

Dear Parents,

Following the recent announcement from Mr Venkatesh of his intention to step down at the end of 2019, the Governing Board met this week to discuss and agree the next steps.

The Governing Board has asked Mr Jon Wilding, Deputy Headteacher, to take on the role of Acting Headteacher for a year, commencing 1st January 2020. I’m delighted to be able to tell you Mr Wilding accepted.

The transition planning will commence immediately and carry on throughout the Autumn Term 2019. It is likely that other interim roles may be required and/or responsibilities re-distributed, and Mr Wilding will advise at the appropriate time.

The Governing Board will also commence the longer term Headteacher recruitment process. In the meantime, we are confident the interim arrangements will provide continuity, stability and continue the ongoing drive for continuous improvement in student outcomes that Littleover Community School is famous for.

If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact me via the school.

Jamie Cameron
Chair of Governors
