Following on from Oakham’s outstanding IB results in July, the School is celebrating yet another year of very good A Level results - with over a third of all grades being A* or A grades. An impressive number of students achieved the top grades, with 22 students gaining straight A* or A grades - including Bob Cliffe and Gregory Sale, both of whom have secured their places at Cambridge (to study Maths and Engineering respectively). Bob, who achieved a phenomenal 5 A*s, has just returned from Indonesia where he won a silver medal whilst representing the UK in the prestigious International Olympiad on Astronomy and Astrophysics. Gregory, who achieved 3 A*s and an A grade was also awarded the much coveted Arkwright Scholarship during his time at Oakham and was one of eight students who scaled Mongolia’s highest summit last summer! “I am delighted and incredibly proud of our students’ achievements, both at A Level and in the International Baccalaureate,” says Headmaster Nigel Lashbrook. “Of course, a really good education has to be so much more than just an excellent set of exam results. More importantly, it is about the skills students learn during their time at school, the confidence they gain, the ability to truly know themselves – and most vitally of all - to be able to think independently and flexibly in order to adapt to many new and different challenges that they will face in the years ahead.” He continues: “I am very proud of the vast range of university destinations that our students go on to - across the UK, Europe and the rest of the World – and the wide-ranging subjects they choose to study. Our award-winning Careers department, which gained the prestigious Career Mark in June, works exceptionally hard to encourage Oakhamians to really think about the many different pathways that lie beyond school.”
