A Level Results

We congratulate all our Year 13 students who received their grades this week. The average grade awarded of B was higher than in previous years, with many appeals still to to come because of the flaws in the algorithm which assigned the grades and last minute changes introduced by the Secretary of State.

The pattern of university admission is also similar to previous years with about 50% of students matriculating at Russell Group universities and substantial Oxbridge and medical school success. It is perhaps an indication of the chaotic nature of the process of A level grade awards this year that it will take a little longer for an accurate picture of all student destinations and results to emerge. In due course, when the combined storms of algorithms and coronavirus have subsided we will be able to gather together to properly applaud our wonderful students and their teachers.
