A Level Results Day Posted - 13/08/2020Back
A Level results day is always full of mixed emotions, but this year was probably more so at Reed’s with the publication of A Level results following an unprecedented summer when no public examinations were held. We are extremely proud of the commitment, application and resilience shown by our Upper Sixth students throughout their A level studies and particularly during the lockdown period. They can now look forward to planning the next exciting stage of their lives at university and beyond.
The vast majority of our students had good reason for celebration as they were awarded grades which reflected their potential and achieved places at their chosen universities. Amongst them were Ryan (A*,A,A) and Phoebe (A*,A*,A*) who will both be going to Cambridge to read Land Economy and Veterinary Medicine respectively. Adam (Oxford, Engineering) and Tim (Cambridge, Modern & Mediaeval Languages), were both successful after applying with confirmed A level grades.
Joint School Captain, Paul (A,A,A,B), is off to Durham to read Engineering along with Zac (A*,A*,A) who will read Classics. Our other School Captain, Hannah (A*,A,A), is going to Nottingham to study Psychology – the same subject Maya (A*,A*,A) will read at Bristol. Bristol will also see the arrival of Jem (A*,A,A), English, and Alex (A*,A*,A), Mechanical and Electrical Engineering. Engineering features in the courses being studied by Angela (A*,A,A,A) at Imperial (Materials Science and Engineering) and Axel (A,A,A,A) at Bath (Mechanical with Automotive Engineering).
Headmaster, Mark Hoskins, commented:
“This cohort has really been one of the most delightful set of students. I am immensely proud of the way they have dealt with the disruption caused by the closure of schools since the end of March, which they have done with resilience, positivity and compassion. They are also one of the most academically strong year groups we have had at Reed’s - evidenced by their GCSE results and the Centre Assessment Grades we awarded to them, which were rigorously formulated and fully reflective of their high level of academic ability. Teaching at Reed’s is based upon our principles of motivating and inspiring each pupil individually to achieve their full academic potential.”
Here are some of our happy students: (l to r) Ryan - Cambridge, Land Economy; Phoebe - Cambridge, Veterinary Science; George - Bristol, Spanish and Politics; Jem - Bristol, English; Angela - Imperial, Materials Science and Engineering.
