There were scenes of jubilation yesterday as many Bright World partner schools achieved excellent results, on the day that all UK boarding school pupils collected their A-Level results. Below are just some of the many updates we received. Congratulations everyone!
Sixth Form students at New Hall School, the overall TES Independent School of the Year 2016-17, are celebrating another year of excellent A Level results and success in achieving the university and apprenticeship places of their choice. Records were set, with the average UCAS point score per student equating to AAB, a remarkable 50 A Level modules scoring a perfect 100% and the highest number ever securing competitive apprenticeship places, including with top London firms.
Mayfield School is celebrating another year of exceptional A Level results, among the best in recent years. Girls have successfully secured places on highly selective courses at leading universities in the UK and overseas including Oxford, Cambridge, Imperial, UCL, Durham, Edinburgh, Bristol, NYU and in Europe to study a wide range of academic disciplines encompassing Natural Sciences, Engineering, Medicine, Economics, Design, Linguistics and Psychology.
Glenalmond pupils have reason to celebrate having achieved a very strong set of results in the 2018 A Level exams. An overall pass rate of 98.7% (98.1% in 2017) 20.9% of pupils received all A*-A grades (12% in 2017). One in five pupils achieved A* or A in all of their chosen subjects. Almost 99% (98.7%) of pupils achieved an overall pass rate and results were particularly strong across language subjects where every pupil achieved A* - B grades for French, Spanish and German.
Pupils at Burgess Hill Girls were celebrating after another excellent set of A level results. Maintaining an unbroken 100% pass rate, an impressive 55% of all grades were A*/A and well over half the girls gained A*-B grades in three or more subjects. The girls’ diverse interests and aspirations together with expert, individually tailored university and futures preparation means the majority will take up places at their first or second choice universities.
Moreton Hall is celebrating another stellar set of results, cementing its position as the top non-selective school in the UK. Students worthy of individual mention include Georgina Lang, whose four A*s enable her to take up her place at Oxford to read Computer Science and Philosophy. Zahra Deji-Abiola moves onto Imperial College to read Chemical Engineering with three A*s and one A and Jasmine Singh fulfils a lifetime ambition to study medicine at King’s College, London with three A*s.
Harrogate Ladies have produced some superb A level results once again. 70% of all grades were A*-B, with 35% A*-A (including twice as many A* grades as independent predictions). They've also had one Oxbridge place granted and 80% of offers from Russell Group Universities. International students, who often sit exams in their second or sometimes third language, also performed excellently.
Girls at St Swithun’s again earned successful A-level results, harvesting a strong yield of the top A* grades. Half of the year group achieved at least one A*, with a quarter of the girls earning two or more A* grades, both of which were increases on previous years. The percentage of grades at A*and A was also higher than last year, and 46% of girls achieved AAA or higher and 62% AAB or better. One student obtained an extraordinary seven A* grades.
