A Level Results 2020
Our pioneer students are celebrating a very strong set of A Level results. Whilst the method of awarding grades has been significantly different, the boys have all performed very well. There was a 100% pass rate overall and the key pieces of data that are a cause for celebration are:
There is no doubt that this first set of results has come about through a combination of the boys’ hard work and the support of teachers and the parents. I also want to commend again the hard work done by the staff who supported the boys through lockdown and put a great deal of work into analysing and producing the data necessary to arrive at these grades.
The Year 13 pupils are well placed to move on to the next stage of their education. The list of courses and institutions is impressive and reflects the diversity of the student body. The majority of boys going to university in the UK will be attending Russell Group universities with places at Cambridge, Imperial, LSE, UCL and Warwick among others.
Boys heading further afield will be taking up places at Notre Dame, the University of Chicago and Wake Forest in the US, with three boys heading to Europe to study at KU Leuven in Belgium, IE Madrid and Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona. The sporting talent of two boys has also been recognised with sports scholarships to Brunel University (rugby) and the University of Akron (American football).
GCSE Results 2020
Our Year 11 boys are celebrating a strong set of GCSE results, the third for the school. The boys have all performed well and there was a 100% pass rate overall. The headlines are:
The uncertainty that has surrounded this examination period has been very unsettling for boys and their parents. I am, therefore, particularly pleased that the system has recognised the boys’ hard work over the last two years. Their efforts and the work they did in the second half of the Summer Term in preparation for their A Levels means that they join Year 12 in a strong position.
