A Level and GCSE Results 201117th August 2011
Thursday August 17th brought another very successful set of A Level results. Whilst statistically these didn’t reach the record heights of 2010, we celebrate the achievement of 61.5% of grades at A* or A and 84% at B grade or above.
10 candidates (6.6%) achieved three or more A* grades and 66 candidates (44%) achieved three or more A/A* grades.
Special mention should be made of Christopher Lark (SH) and Rachel Castola (HH) who both achieved five A*s. In addition, Catriona Casha (MT) amassed 780 UCAS points, followed by the Christopher Lark (770) and Rachel Castola (760).
The vast majority of pupils with university offers have been successful in meeting their requirements. Of those who weren’t, some have already received offers of places through Clearing.
The signs are promising too for 2012. At AS Level, 28 candidates (16.5%) averaged at 90% or more in all their exams, and 73 (43%) averaged at 80% or more. We look forward to helping this year group fulfil their considerable potential.
Many congratulations also to all our GCSE/IGCSE candidates. The provisional figures show 90% of all entries resulting in A*, A or B grades. Outstanding performances were achieved by a number of pupils, notably: Evangeline Kanagasooriam with 13A*s and A grades in the Additional Maths (FSMQ) paper and in AS Level French; Harriet Wilson with 11 A*s, an A grade in AS French and an A grade in Additional Maths; and Fenella Chesterfield and Constance O’Neill, both with 11A*s and A grades in AS French. In addition, Maya Kolade, Mylynn Bowker, Harry Bruges, Dominic Hall and Fiona Jenkinson all achieved 10 A*s.
Overall, sixteen candidates achieved 9 A*s or more and twenty-four candidates 8 A*s or more.
