Top school in England

Our Sixth Formers have once again excelled, delivering a record-breaking set of A-level results. We are so pleased to say that:

  • The Times listed us as the top school in England on the day of results
  • 44% of our grades were A*, a new College record (versus 8% nationally)
  • 97% of our grades were A*-B
  • Our most common grade was an A*
  • 20% of pupils got three A*s (or equivalent) or more
  • Over half of our Upper Sixth achieved A*/A in their subjects

 

We're incredibly proud of our Sixth Formers. Mr Cairns said: "This was a year group whose company I hugely enjoyed and will greatly miss. They were slightly quirky, wonderfully colourful and just a little bit irreverent. They never took themselves too seriously and they wore their ability lightly. That modesty makes me even more proud that it was they who have broken our already impressive A-level record. I am thrilled for all of them."

The leavers of 2019 happily reap the reward of their hard work and dedication.

125 pupils achieved only A*-A or equivalent

A remarkable 58% of this year's cohort managed to get only A*s or As in their exams (Pre-U exams for Russian and Mandarin grade with a D1, D2, D3 or an M1 - the equivalent of A*-A). Find individual pupils by first name below.
