A Level Results Summer 2020 (updated on 19th August 2020)
Following the government decision to move to a model of awarding A Level grades based on Centre Assessment Grades, we are delighted to share an update of the achievements and destinations of our A-Level students.
Our students have worked extremely hard throughout their time in our Sixth Form and we are very proud of them - the more so as they have had to experience unprecedented disruption and uncertainty towards the end of their secondary education and since.
The results awarded this summer have been determined by the School following a rigorous internal process in line with OFQUAL guidance and thus represent as accurate a reflection as possible of our students’ ability, work and effort over the duration of the A Level course.
In most subject areas, attainment has remained consistently high in comparison with previous years. We are very pleased that in some instances, attainment has improved further still due to continued review and refinement of our practices. On average, this year’s A Level cohort also had higher attainment on entry to our Sixth Form than that in the previous year.
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%.
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.
Overall, there were many amazing individual successes which deserve to be specially highlighted.
