Students and staff at Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar School were celebrating as students collected their A level results.

Overall results showed a 6% increase in the awarding of A*/A grades and a 3% increase in the A*/B measure. There was also a 2% increase in the number of students achieving at least 3 A grades.

34% of students achieved at least one A* or A grade which is a remarkable achievement as the School only offers a set of the most traditional and rigorous A level subjects.

Art, Biology, Business, Chemistry, Classical Civilisation, English and Mathematics have all seen an increase in the percentage of students obtaining A* or A grades whilst Art, Business, Classical Civilisation, Design Technology, History, Mathematics, Physics, Psychology and Spanish have all seen an increase in the percentage of students obtaining A*, A or B grades.

A level Arabic, Art, Design Technology and Physical Education saw 100% of students gaining A*-B grades, with Chemistry gaining 54%, Classical Civilisation 75% and Spanish gaining 67% in this measure.

All of our A level subjects saw 50% or more students gaining A*-C grades in their subject with 12 out of 19 subjects seeing more than 60% of students gaining A*-C grades.

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 proud that we have students going to University to read the most competitive courses including Medicine, Optometry, Biosciences, Aerospace Engineering, Chemistry, Physics, Law and Economics with Business Management. Students will be attending a range of Universities including Newcastle University, Liverpool University, Leeds University, Lancaster University, Manchester University and Queen Mary’s Bristol.

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. Our students continue to work extremely hard and thoroughly deserve their success.”

“I would like to congratulate all the students and wish them well in the future.”
