Celebrating the best A Level results in recent years! Posted - 15/08/2019Back
We are delighted to report another really excellent round of results for A Level this year with an impressive 50% of all grades awarded at A*/A, one of the best results in recent years. Almost a third of all students gained at least 3 A grades with 5 students achieving 4A* grades.
We are particularly proud of the 4 students who gained places at Cambridge: Hannah Robertson to read Natural Sciences; Sam Hunt to read Classics; Marcus Jones to read Archaeology and Abigail Nicholson to read Geography.
After our best ever acceptance levels for Medicine and Vet Science we celebrate the results for the 7 students who gained places, especially for twins, Thomas and Pierce Gaut, who will read Vet Science and Medicine respectively.
At the same time we also celebrate the success of Gregor Thomson, who gained 2A*s and an A grade, and won a scholarship to study Percussion at the Royal College of Music.
A number of students gained places to study at prestigious universities in the US including Chicago, Berklee and Duke.
These results further reinforce our strong reputation for consistently high academic achievement at A Level. There were exceptional performances this year in many subjects but especially in Maths, Physics and Modern Languages.
The vast majority of our students will be going on to study a broad range of subjects at many leading and Russell Group universities including Durham, Bristol, Leeds, Nottingham, Birmingham and Exeter.
Headmaster, Mark Hoskins, commented “I am absolutely delighted by these excellent results and would like to congratulate all of our students and wish them all the very best for the future. In an increasingly competitive world these results not only demonstrate our strong academic performance but also demonstrate the breadth of subjects about which our students are passionate. Although by no means the only measure of success, academic performance is vital in helping our students achieve their aspirations. The new study area in the refurbished Sixth Form House has proved to be very productive for this cohort and, we hope, will prove the same for those to follow.”
