Overall 75.8% of all A-levels taken were graded A*-B. Several departments have achieved outstanding results, and A*-B grades were obtained by 100% of candidates in the following subjects: Art, Economics, German, Japanese, Latin, and Further Mathematics.

The success of our Sixth Form students is reflected in the high number progressing to prestigious universities both in the UK and overseas.

In congratulating his pupils, the Headmaster Philip John said that he was delighted with this year�s A-level results which reflected a great deal of hard work and commitment from both students and staff. In particular the 18.9% A* grades and 75.8% of grades at A*-B was most commendable given the reported fall in top grades nationally this year.
