A Level Results 2012
55% A*-B Grades
On Thursday 16th August our A level results were published and we were delighted that nearly all students gained their first choice of university and course. You may have read about the drop in A* and A grades nationally which had been reported in the media. We have certainly seen a number of results which are a grade below expectations, but in almost all cases I am pleased to say this has not affected university entrance. Despite this the results have been very good, with 55% A*-B grades (97% A* - E Grades). I congratulate all students and staff on these results which are the culmination of two years of hard work.
"In less than a term, our daughter gained hugely in confidence and self-esteem and this in turn led to a huge improvement in her standard of work, helped by a very early (within 2 weeks) identification of the need for some learning support, which was implemented and within only a matter of weeks showing massive benefits
The engagement in House musical activities, too, helped her build her self-assurance. In addition, the opportunities for games offered by the School mean that she has now played hockey for the school (she never achieved that in 8 years at her previous school) and has taken the opportunity to try rowing, a sport not even available previously. All this in only a few weeks!"
