Students and staff at Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar School were celebrating this morning as students collected their A level results.
The vast majority of students have been accepted onto a University course of their choice and those going through the clearing system quickly secured places.
We are delighted that we have students going to University to read the most competitive courses including Natural Sciences, Medicine, Optometry, Veterinary Biosciences, Engineering, Biochemistry and Architecture. Students will be attending a wide geographical range of Universities including Cambridge University, Newcastle University, Nottingham University, Essex University, Portsmouth University, Manchester University and Stirling University.
24.1% of students achieved at least one A or A* grade and 55.2% of students attained at least all C grades, a remarkable achievement as the School only offers a set of the most traditional and rigorous A level subjects.
Out of 21 subjects, 16 subjects had 100% pass rate and Biology, Chemistry, Further Mathematics, Mathematics and Physics have all seen an increase in the percentage of students obtaining A*, A or B grades.
A level Further Mathematics and Physical Education saw 66.7% and 100% respectively of students gain A*-A grades.
A level French, Further Mathematics, Geography, Japanese and Physical Education saw 67% or more students gain A*-B grades, with A level Biology and Economics gaining 55% or more A*-B grades.
A level Classical Civilisation, French, Further Mathematics, Geography, German, Japanese, Music, Physical Education and Spanish saw 100% of students gain A*-C grades.
Mrs Claire Gammon, Head, was delighted with the results.
“To see so many students being able to accept places on University courses of their choice was really pleasing.”
“I would like to congratulate all the students on their hard work and dedication and wish them well in the future as they move onto their University courses.”
