A level and AS Results 2017

I am delighted to be able to announce our first complete set of A level results, and that the majority of our students will be going to their first-choice universities. We wish them all well and hope they visit again soon to tell us all about their experiences.

A level results come in two standards, the A2 is the full A level, usually taken at the end of Y13 and the AS level which is half an A level taken in either Y12 or Y13.

21% of all the A2 results achieved this year were A* grades. The national average was 8.3%.

All of the students achieved passing grades in the A2, and including the results that were taken early, 33% of the A2 grades were A*-A, significantly better than the national average of 26.3% and 67% were A*-B grades, substantially above the national average of 53.1%.

Across the languages 83% of the A2 and AS results were A*-A this year, and the Art and Photography department is celebrating 100% A*-A at both A2 and AS levels.

Economics, introduced this year, has made a strong start with 50% of the students getting A grades in the AS level. Please note that there is no A* grade at AS level.

The Year 11s also have good reason to start the celebrations a week early with 63% of the students getting an A grade in the Additional Maths qualification. Like the AS level, there is no A* grade in this qualification.
And on that note, I will sign off in optimistic anticipation of next week’s GCSE results.
