A well-deserved achievement.
We were all delighted by the results our Upper VI achieved in their A Levels this summer. After a gruelling year of lockdowns, the results are a well-deserved tribute to the hard work and positive attitudes of both pupils and teachers.
These results recognise all that the school has achieved in the past year. With uninterrupted teaching through on-site classes running in collaboration with an excellent remote teaching and learning programme during lockdowns, no time was wasted and no opportunity let slip in order that the girls could achieve their potential in their A Levels.
Despite yet another year of no examinations, the grades achieved by our A Level students are testament to the outstanding educational opportunities available here, even during the pandemic:
- 100% of all A Level grades are A* – C with
- 28% of pupils achieving only A* grades and
- 56% of pupils achieving only A* or A grades.
- 85% of A Level grades are A* or A and
- 98% of all results are A*-B
Students have received exceptional offers from an impressive range of courses and universities nationwide, which include Mathematics at Bristol University, Politics and International Studies at Warwick University, Dental Surgery at Plymouth University, Biomedical Sciences at Exeter University, Russian Studies and Social Policy/Sociology and Politics at Edinburgh University, Chemical Engineering at University College London and Classical Studies at King’s College London.
All the girls have impressed us with the quality of their research into the courses and providers, also securing places with top grades at leading institutions with a specialism for their course of study, for example, Mathematics and Accounting and Financial Management at Loughborough University.
In addition, the students have had great success applying to non-UK universities with places achieved at a range of U.S. universities with impressive offers of scholarships from the University of Tampa and SMU in Dallas. The world is their oyster!
Mrs Raffray, Headteacher, commented, ‘We are all delighted by these A Level results. The students worked with zest and energy, supported by outstanding teachers who mustered every reserve of energy in the middle of a very bleak winter to ensure that this exam series delivered the right results for each candidate. Congratulations to all our girls on their excellent results’. St Augustine’s Priory can, yet again, celebrate the achievement of its pupils as they look forward to the next stage in their educational careers.Categories: Junior Nursery Prep Priory Post Senior Sixth Form Whole School
