A level results summer 2016

A results2016 aIt was a time of celebration for many students and their families following the publication of the A level results.  The overall scores of the school were impressive with 99% of the exams graded A* to E and 28.7% grades A* or A (compared with 24.7% in 2015).

However, for the individuals involved, it was all about whether the grades would be good enough for university entry. The vast majority of our students have reached their first choice institution including, for example, Jonathan Adams (with 3A*s and 1 A, Engineering at Durham), Victor Ball (2 A*s and 2 As, Maths at Bath), Ciara Connolly (2 A*s and 2 As, Biomedical Sciences at York), Alex Coveney (1 A*, 1 A and 1 B, Information Systems Management and Innovation at Warwick), Elizabeth Crowley (2 A*s and 2 As, Maths at Bath), Ellen Dunn (2 A*s and 1 A, Music at Oxford), Madeleine Davy (1A*, 1 A and 1 B, Psychology at Loughborough), Alistair Hales (3 A*s and 1 A, Maths at Warwick), Ruairi O’Leary (2 A*s and 2 As, PPE at Oxford), Lucy Meseg (1 A* and 2 As, Law at Exeter), Freya Marshall (1 A*, 1 A and 1 B, Fashion Marketing at Manchester) and Emily Seddon (2 A* and 1 A, Maths at Bristol). Overall, we expect well over 125 students will be off to university this autumn.

At AS level, the results were similarly encouraging, with 90% achieving A to E grades (compared to 89% in 2015) and 63% achieving A to C grades (compare to 63% in 2015).  All this was achieved against a backdrop of new syllabuses and some turbulence in national results. It augers well for the future as our new Year 13 prepare for the UCAS process. Particular congratulations are due to James Alden, Esther Barnard, Hannah Cheek, Lucy Dyer, Annabel Fredericks, Daniel Harwood, Esme Herman, Elliot Hills, Josie Hughes, Siobhan Maher, Joanna Parker, Corinne Rogers and Lucy Weddell who all achieved four or five A grades. In addition, there were 26 students who were graded B or above in all their subjects.
