exmresultsThe pass rate this year was an outstanding 98% with 19 subjects achieving 100% pass rates.

Congratulations to all those 6th Form students who got their A-levels, AS levels and BTec Nationals results on Thursday 18th August 2011.

Once again the students and teachers produced some excellent results. Many students are going off to take up their university places in the new term. We don't know yet the final university destinations of all our students, but we do know, so far, over 125 have gained places at university/college throughout the land. Some are going to some of the most prestigious universities in the country; Oxford, Durham, London, Bristol, Sussex, Southampton and Leeds to study for degrees in subjects as diverse as Maths, Physics, English, French, Geography, Philosophy, Psychology, Mechanical Engineering, Aeronautical Engineering and Cellular and Molecular Medicine.

Well done to all of them!

AlexWillisOur star student this year was Alex Willis who acheived the top A* grade in Physics, Chemistry and Biology, some of the most academic subjects that can be taken. Many others also achieved 3 A grades, some with one or two  A* grades.

The A* grade was introduced last year to stretch the brightest students and help universities differentiate between the best candidates. To get an A* grade in an A-level exam, a student has to score an A overall for the two year course, plus at least 90% in each paper in the second year of the course
