A Level ResultsPosted on: 17 Aug 2017
We are delighted for our Year 13 students who have achieved the school’s best yet A level results.
Thursday 17 August was a very happy day peppered with many stories of individual success. Whilst it is unfair to single out individuals when the overall picture is so positive we would like to highlight students such as Imogen and Anna, twin sisters heading to Oxford to study Psychology and French respectively. Imogen’s grades were A*, A, A and Anna’s A, A, A. William who achieved A*, A*, A and heads to Imperial to study Electrical and Electronic Engineering. Gracie achieved A*, A*, A and will be embarking upon her foundation year in Art at Camberwell. Ibrahim has been accepted to study a prestigious Dentistry course at Birmingham having achieved grades A, A, B. Danielle achieved A*, A, B and will be studying Actuarial Science at Southampton. Patrycja and Lily both achieved A*, A, A and have been awarded places to study Medicine at Imperial. Sagal achieved A*, A, B and will be studying Psychology at Queen Mary and Charis will be studying Mathematics at Edinburgh having achieved grades A*, A*, A.
In addition to this five students celebrate being awarded places at Cambridge or Oxford.
The list goes on and we are conscious that it would be possible to choose a huge range of names to mention.
While today is about the students, we remain as a school very proud of our academic achievements. A summary of grades is presented below.
33% of all grades are A* - A
63% of all grades are A* - B
85% of all grades are A*-C
These are exceptionally strong results, significantly above national average, and are testament to the extremely hard work by students and teachers and ongoing support from families.
The Director of Sixth, Mr Follows said, ‘Whichever way you look at it these are impressive results, I am delighted that the work ethic exhibited by the year group throughout their two year courses has resulted in such delightful outcomes.’
Within these results there are many success stories for subjects such as English Literature and Mathematics who had significant proportions of students achieving the very highest grades. Similar success can be found around the school with subjects such as Spanish, French, Art and BTEC Sports Science all achieving formidable results.
We wish our outgoing Year 13 nothing but happiness and success as they embark on their next steps. We toast their academic achievements but also the way in which they applied themselves to culture, performance, politics and social action. They leave both big shoes to fill and a legacy as role models to the school.
