A-Level Performance

2018

Congratulations to all our students on their remarkable successes in their A Level examinations.

28% of grades were A* or A, with 58% A*, A or B and 86% A*, A, B or C, making 2018’s results our best for the past five years. The A Level Performance System (ALPS) analysis of our students’ performance in relation to schools across the country is expressed as a T Score grade 2, ‘Outstanding’.

As a result of their commitment and hard work, as well as the dedicated support of their teachers, parents and families, our students are able to go on to the next phase of their learning, training or employment with confidence and optimism.

The vast majority of students achieved their planned destination.  They take with them our very best wishes for future happiness, success and fulfilment.
