Published Wednesday 2nd of December 2015 04:02:40 PM

Prior Park College A Level students are celebrating a 100% pass rate with the vast majority securing places at top universities. With 13.1 % of all grades at highest A*, the College maintained the excellent level from 2014 against national trends. Furthermore, over three quarters of all grades were at A*-B, with 92.5% at A*-C, again maintaining strength in the prestigious top end grades. For students submitting for three or more A2 subjects, the average points per pupil was 334 - one of our best results ever set against a tough year nationally. Outstanding students included Michael Wilson with 3A* and 1A at A2 and Liam Delaney with 3A* at A2 with A at AS and A* in EPQ. A further 7 students secured two passes at the highest A* grade. Outstanding departments included Mathematics where half of all candidates secured to A or A*, and almost one third of students secured A*. Further Mathematics enjoyed its most successful year with all students securing A or A* and two thirds securing top A*. Meanwhile, English Lit students achieved 40% A* with almost two thirds securing top A or A*, and one third of Classics students securing A*, with half securing A*/A, and 4 in 5 securing top A*- B. Headmaster, James Murphy-O’Connor comments: “With grades at the top end tightening in a National context, Prior Park students have secured grades most worthy of celebration, and earned themselves places at first choice universities against significant competition. Once again they have demonstrated diligence in their studies and they can be very proud of themselves, as we are of them.”
