A great set of A level results
With the Gold DofE expedition, a trip-of-a-lifetime to Tanzania and excellent A level results leading to students securing places at universities up and down the country, it has been an exciting summer for 6th formers at St Bede’s. With the overall number of students achieving A*-B grades rising to 55.2% in 2018, there was a good deal to celebrate on results day.
Maths and science subjects always attract the largest number of entries at A level and three students secured places to study medicine from September. The individuals are Maxine Coldrey (who secured an A* and two A grades), Archie Drawbridge (three A*s) and Millie Wallis (two A*s and an A).
Other high fliers included Amy Connolly, with one A* and two A grades, who will study biology at Leeds, Freddie Davy with 3A*s who will read mechanical engineering at Bath, Lauren Elliott, who achieved three A*s and an A, will study French and Italian at St Andrews, Natasha Harwood with three As, who will read Chemistry at Birmingham, Chris Jackson with an A*, two As and a B who will study Maths at Bath and Daniel Prestwood with two A*s and two As who will study Physics at Durham.
Head of 6th form Karen Tottey paid tribute to the students who had worked so hard. “Their results are a testament to very hard work by staff and students,” she said. “It is very pleasing to see so many students achieving the grades they need for university entrance.”
