Hampton Court House celebrates record A Level results

Dr Adrian Rainbow

Headmaster

A huge congratulations to our Year 13 leavers who are celebrating a record year for A Levels, with over 70% of all grades being awarded A* – A, soaring above the national average of 58% for independent schools and reaching the Top 50 of all London schools and the Top 50 UK independent schools in The Telegraph’s league table. 

 

Key achievements:

  • 23% A* grades (Improvement from 9.5% in 2019)
  • Over 70% A* – A grades (Above the nationwide average of 58% for independent schools)
  • 89% A* – B grades (Improvement from 79% in 2021 and 83% in 2019)
  • 98% A* – C grades (Improvement from 97% in 2021 and 97% in 2019)
  • 57% of entire year group achieved 3 or more A and A* grades

Our extraordinary students rose to the challenges posed over the last two years following the pandemic and return to classroom learning, with 57% of the cohort achieving 3 or more A* and A grades and 89% of all grades were awarded A* – B.

The record results were found across a range of subject disciplines, with 100% A* and A grades in History, Geography and ICT, while 100% of grades were awarded A* – B in Art, Biology, Economics, English Literature, Geography, History, ICT, Physics and Psychology.

These results indicate that 75% of Hampton Court House Sixth Formers including a number of Oxbridge candidates met and exceeded their firm choice Russell Group university offers at leading universities such as Edinburgh, University College London, St Andrews, Exeter and King’s College London.

These results conclude another outstanding year for Hampton Court House, which saw the school being recognised with the Wellbeing Award for Schools and accredited with the LabelFrancÉducation from the Institut français in March, while Nebula Research launched the Future Researcher’s Programme in Year 12.

“Massive congratulations to all of our Year 13 students. I am so proud of them for everything they have achieved, the way they overcame all of the challenges they faced, and their remarkable resilience. This bodes well as I know they will continue to thrive as they head off to university and the next stage of their journey. I would also like to thank our amazing staff who invested so much time, energy and care in preparing the students for their exams.” Dr Adrian Rainbow, Headmaster

“I am absolutely delighted for our 6th Form students today. These results are a superb achievement and I could not be more proud of both our students and 6th Form teaching team. From these fantastic results HCH students will go on to study at some of the UK’s most prestigious universities and I am confident they will take with them the love of learning they have so admirably demonstrated through these results.” Katherine Vintiner, Principal

“We’re so proud and delighted for all our students in achieving this outstanding set of A Level results. These superb grades are a testament to our young people’s determination, hard work and intellectual curiosity – all the more impressive given the challenges of COVID. Our students represent the very best of HCH’s unique ethos, and we wish our Year 13 leavers all the very best as they move on to a fantastic future at university and beyond.” Rob Armiger, Head of Sixth Form

Congratulations to our Y13 students for achieving such impressive results in their A levels. They demonstrated tremendous individual and collective maturity when dealing with the challenges posed by COVID-19 and we are all so proud of them for what they have accomplished. For me personally, it has been a joy and privilege to have been their form tutor and I wish them all the best in the next chapter of their lives. I look forward to hearing how they are getting on and very much hope to see them visiting us at HCH in the future. Thomas Roberts, Year 13 form tutor

Remote teaching, Zoom calls, covid, lockdown, CAG’s… all part of the vocabulary from the last few years of their educational journey that didn’t exist when they started their secondary education seven years ago. They should be so proud of all they have achieved. They have shown determination and resilience in the challenges they faced; I wish them the very best as they embark on the next part of their learning journey and look forward to hearing about their exploits. Paul Pearce, Deputy Head Academic
