Another Year of Exceptional Results for Leweston’s Sixth Formers.

Published Wednesday 19th of August 2015 09:51:19 AM

Leweston School, Sherborne, is celebrating excellent A Level results. Sixth Form girls achieved a 100% pass rate with 92% of the exams passed at grade A* to C or Pre-U equivalent and 77% at A* to B or Pre-U equivalent. 63% of the results were passed at A* or A grades or Pre-U equivalent, more than double the national average of 26%. Average UCAS points per candidate were 372, the equivalent of over three A grades per candidate. These results have enabled almost all Leweston’s leavers to win places at their chosen universities or specialist colleges. The outstanding achiever was Alina P with 3 A* and 3 A grades who will read Natural Sciences at University College London. Many girls are going on to the more selective institutions including Bristol, Cambridge, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Exeter, St. Andrews and University College London to study degrees such as Accounting, Architecture, Economics, English, Modern Languages, Mathematics, Medicine, Natural Sciences, Nursing, Philosophy and Politics, Psychology and Theology. Retiring Headmaster Adrian Aylward said “I am delighted with what is another strong set of results at Leweston across the whole ability range further building on our record of success. These outstanding achievements pay testament to the hard work of the pupils and the work ethic of the school. These girls should be justifiably proud of their success and they will undoubtedly continue to thrive in their further studies.” Mrs Reynolds, Leweston’s new Head added that she is “thrilled that the girls’ and teachers’ hard work and aspirational attitudes have been rewarded.” There will be an opportunity for parents and students to find out more about Sixth Form Study at Leweston and the Cambridge Pre-U, at the forthcoming Open Evening on Friday 2nd October at 5pm.
