Record A-level results for fifth consecutive year

Published Wednesday 2nd of November 2016 10:18:31 AM

Hurst celebrated its fifth consecutive year of improved A-level results in 2016. 77 A* grades were achieved overall, 43 pupils 3 As or better, and A* and A grades made up 52.6% of all Hurst's results. Hurst’s third cohort of International Baccalaureate students scored an amazing average of 38 points – another school record - with many exceeding 40 points. Headmaster Tim Manly said, “The Upper Sixth were a great group of pupils and a real pleasure to have at the College. They contributed hugely in every way to the life of Hurst and I have no doubt that they will go on from here to be successful and independent individuals making their way in the world. It was no surprise therefore that they achieved the best results in the College’s history. They are set for the future and are on their way to an impressive group of universities. The majority are off to Russell group including Oxford, Cambridge and other leading universities. Whatever they do in the future, I hope that all our students take a great set of memories from Hurst as well as excellent friendships and experiences.” Martyna Wieczorek topped this year’s list of achievers with five A* grades at A2 level, an A at AS level and an A* Extended Project. She confirmed her place to study Computer Science at Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge. Alexander Norden gained four A*s, plus an A at AS level and easily met the conditions of his offer to read Physics at Worcester College, Oxford. Amelia Jaffe, with three A* grades and an A at AS level, is heading to Newnham College, Cambridge to read Natural Sciences and Johanna Moiseiwitsch with two A*s and two As at A2 level will study English and French at Exeter College, Oxford. Oliver Mears added two A*s and two As to bring his total A2 level tally to five, before he starts on a Chemistry degree at Oriel College, Oxford. Michael Barbour will be reading Theology and Religious Studies at Clare College, Cambridge and Fiona Andrew, Rachel Ferguson and Nicholas Robinson will all be starting courses in Medicine at Cardiff, Bristol and Imperial College respectively. James Wood and John Townsend achieved four A* grades each and Roseanna Leach, Thomas Lewis, Oliver Rogers and Molly Shaw all had three A*s on their statements of results. The vast majority of A-Level leavers secured their places at their first choice universities and, as usual, high numbers will go on to Russell Group universities including Birmingham, King’s College, Liverpool, the LSE, Newcastle, Sheffield, University College, Warwick and York.
