2019 A Level results

A Level Exam Results

We are today celebrating another superb set of A Level results. An impressive 72.4% of students have achieved top grade passes.

 

Headteacher Derek Peaple commented: "We are absolutely thrilled by this year’s superb A Level results, which represent a gratifying culmination of the talent and dedication of a truly special year group. We couldn’t be prouder of them. These exceptional young people thoroughly deserve their success; we are so happy for them. They have also contributed magnificently to the life of the school and wider community during their time with us, in so many different ways. As a year group, they have significantly exceeded every performance target and we congratulate them on the truly wonderful progress and achievement that this represents."

 

72.4% of passes were at A*-C and 51.4% at A*-B, with 100% of students achieving one or more A Levels.
