Congratulations to all our students on their excellent A Level results 2020!

We are absolutely delighted with the A Level results our students have achieved this year. They have worked extremely hard and we are very proud of them.

Overall, 50.2% of all grades awarded were at A*-A, 76% were at A*-B and 95.2% were at A*-C. The pass rate was 100%.  Students have secured university places across the United Kingdom from Edinburgh to Exeter, with seven places at Oxford.

The majority of our students will again take up places at a range of excellent institutions including a significant proportion of Russell Group universities; a number will embark on Art or Design Foundation Courses and some will undertake apprenticeships or a planned GAP year.

In total, nine students have gained places at Oxford or Cambridge.

Five students will study at Cambridge University: Jamila El-Daouk (Asian and Middle Eastern Studies); Natasha Wardle (Theology, Religion and Philosophy of Religion); Susanna Wagstaff (Modern and Medieval Languages); and Nourhan Meddah (Human, Social and Political Sciences).

Sharese Gayle was the top performer in the year group and will read Natural Sciences at Cambridge.  

Four further students have gained places at Oxford University: Louise Fitzpatrick (English Language and Literature); Erin Hiscock (Biochemistry); Kate Ratcliff (History); and Alice Simmonds (Physics).

Four students will take up places to study Medicine: Assal Massroor, Emily Man, Ler Tu Seah and Anushka Schwager-Patel.

We congratulate the students on their fabulous achievements and wish them every success in the next stage of their journey! We look forward to staying in touch.

The curriculum offer for the Sixth Form ensures that students have a wide range of options. Most students study three Linear A levels subjects with terminal exams in Year 13.

We offer the following A level subjects: English Literature, English Language and Literature, Mathematics, Mathematics with Further Maths, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, History, Geography, Religious Studies, French, German, Spanish, Psychology, Sociology, Economics, Art, Music, Drama, Product Design, Textiles, and Film Studies. 

This range of subjects enables students to study subjects which are new to them in Key Stage 5, as well as to develop interests they already have. To study in the Sixth Form, students need to attain five GCSE grades at level 9-5, including English Language and Mathematics. In addition, there are particular GCSE grade requirements for most A Level subjects. 

In addition we offer the Level 3 Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) which complements the standard offer of three A levels.  This qualification is well regarded by universities and allows students to develop the skills required when studying at undergraduate level; such as independence, research skills, academic writing, presentation skills, project management skills, data analysis and problem solving.
