Leighton Park School - Stellar Smiles as Students Achieve Top Grades!
Anxious students arrived early at Leighton Park School this morning, eager to learn what the future holds beyond their A Level examinations. Nervous chatter was replaced by laughter, hugs and tears of relief as students were delighted to discover the reward for all their hard work was a fantastic set of results. 62% of candidates achieved A*-B grades, an increase of 6% on 2014’s results, and the average points per student rose by 7% to 301 points per student.
The A Level results continue to build on the excellent success of Leighton Park’s Sixth Formers, with July’s International Baccalaureate results averaging 34 points against a world average of 29.9 points.
Nigel Williams, Head, commented “I am delighted that the students have responded so well to the particular challenges of this year’s examinations and, through their dedication and the hard work of the staff, the school has once again continued to improve the already impressive academic reputation of the school.”
Star performer, Harry Day, was thrilled with his fantastic A*A*A* results and received well-deserved congratulations from Academic Deputy Head, Karen Gracie-Langrick.
Celebrating his outstanding AAA grades, Theo Burgess is looking forward to reading International Relations and Politics at the University of Bristol in September. “I’m really surprised actually,” said Theo, “I don’t know how I did it but I’m delighted!".
Sarah Reed, whose great score of AAB will take her to the University of Leeds to read Economics and Management, commented “I was convinced I was going through clearing; I’ve been up since the early hours. It’s such a relief to get my results; I’m so pleased!”.
