Examinations Information & Results
"One of the true pleasures of my job is seeing young people reach their academic goals. Year in, year out they exceed even my expectations. There is no real secret to it; academically able students, who work extremely hard and remain positive and optimistic (despite the difficulties life throws at them) will achieve well. What is always a constant joy to me is the degree to which this experience shapes them into politically aware, socially considerate and culturally creative human beings, truly deserving of their place in our community. The class of 2016 are no exception. As a year group they have once again improved on the A* to B percentage of their predecessors, pushing the school total to over 76% of all exams sat being graded at A* to B. That is not to undervalue the achievements of a C, D or E grade. Often these represent a long running battle with a subject or a circumstance and, if so, are to be held in the same esteem as the A* to B. That is why I am also incredibly proud that the class of 2016 have also maintained the school’s impressive 100% A level pass rate. This record has stood for many years now and relies on the continued efforts and achievement of every single one of our students to maintain it. I hope that it long continues to stand.
A levels remain a tough academic challenge, one that young people must rise to if they want to set their trajectory high for their next period of study / career. I am very pleased to be able to say that amongst the engineers, historians, mathematicians and linguists (to name just a few of the courses of study selected by this year group) heading off to some of the best universities in the country, we have six students who have obtained places at either Oxford or Cambridge. A further three students are embarking on courses in either Medicine or Veterinary Science.
As the world of further education changes with universities demanding more and more from students and employers looking far beyond just a set of grades, I am so proud that the class of 2016 have used their time here so wisely. They have not just achieved some great results they have created springboard for success in the future and I look forward to seeing them return to us with stories of their adventures and triumphs."
