Gresham�s School in Holt is celebrating another excellent set of A-level results which reflect once again the academic rigour and intellectual creativity of its Sixth Form students. After a very strong set of International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) results in July which saw one Gresham�s student, Connie Birch of Norfolk, being placed in the top 0.2% of candidates globally, the School is delighted that its A-level results complement this success.

Overall three-quarters of all A-levels sat were graded A*-B. Several departments have achieved unprecedented results; 100% of all candidates who took Spanish achieved an A* or A grade. 75% of all candidates who were entered for English have achieved either an A* or an A grade. As Gresham�s continues to build upon its academic success, it is pleasing to see this high level of attainment replicated across the board.

The results of a number of students are particularly noteworthy. Jackson Partridge and Robert Cooke, both of Norfolk, achieved 4 A*s. Nancy Colomb�, George Searle also from Norfolk and Ondrej Komora from Slovakia achieved 3 A*s and an A. With over 40 of Gresham�s students achieving the equivalent of at least three �As� or above.

Headmaster Philip John said, �I am delighted with this fine set of A-level results. The number of our students who have achieved excellent grades is indicative of the scholarly passion and self discipline that our academic staff routinely engenders in our students. This is another exciting year for Gresham�s as it sees a broadening of the curriculum for both the A-level and IB Diploma programmes. We will continue to build upon our academic success by providing a holistic and individualised educational experience which successfully enables young people to fulfil their potential�.
