A Level joy for dedicated students

Delighted A Level students celebrated some outstanding results with family and friends.

Following a challenging 18 months, with periods of remote learning and the cancellation of formal exams, the year group achieved great success and were congratulated by Head of Sixth Form Josh Carter.

He said: “Much like the year group before them, this group of young people have faced some difficult circumstances and periods of uncertainty with great resilience.

“They stayed focused on their studies and remained determined to secure the best possible outcomes for themselves. The success that they achieved today is thoroughly deserved and is the result of years of hard work.

“I wish them all the best as they take on their next challenge; whether that be university, an apprenticeship or a year out. I know they have very bright futures ahead of them.”

Overall, 80% of students secured their first place university offer.

The following students achieved four A* grades:
Ross Clark, Madeline Ellis, Mansi Gupta, Thomas Leitch, Blair McCormick, Angus Millard, Gabrielle Parkinson, Daniel Rajapandian, William Standing, Mark Turner, Freya Walsh and Riyaan Yesudian.

The following students achieved three A* grades:
Lauren Barnes, Emma Henry, Chloe Horton, Tilly Irvine, Thomas Jackson, Kieran Moon, Lucy Plunkett, Soumya Saladi, James Read, Lily Walker and Oliver Whittlestone.

Headmaster George Hartley said: “I am incredibly proud of how this group has emerged from the last year and a half.
“We worked hard as a school to offer as much support and guidance as possible, but inevitably they did face a degree of disruption and uncertainty at a crucial time in their education and development.

“I am confident that the adaptability and resilience they have developed over the past 18 months will stay with them for life and, combined with these fantastic results, will be a solid foundation for future success.”
