This year’s A- level results are excellent with the vast majority of students securing their place at their first choice of university. The pass rate of 100% was outstanding with 78.6% of the grades being A* -B which is the second highest ever; particularly pleasing was the high proportion of A*/A which was 55.3%.
There were many superb individual performances with 17 students getting three or more A* grades (including EPQ and General Studies) including Benjamin Wayne who secured 5 A* grades and is going to Durham to read Natural Science. The majority of applicants to Oxbridge were successful and, once again, there are a good number of medics (6) and vets (5). There were many happy students on the day who had achieved the necessary grades for their first choice university.
Laura Bosomworth, Alexander Cavell-Taylor, Euan Clyde, Tamsin Cutmore, Katherine Fraser, Joseph Haynes, Will Stobbs, Georgia Stuart-Mills, Ross Sullivan, Jonathan Tanner, Jennifer Unwin, Katie Veitch, Benjamin Wayne, Emma Wilkinson all secured at least 3 A* grades and if we include the EPQ and General Studies then Francesca Haldane, Roscoe Savage and Lucy Wicks can also be included in this group.
