Phenomenal A Level Results at Leighton Park School

Published Monday 6th of September 2021 12:00:00 PM

Sixth Formers at Leighton Park were delighted to receive their phenomenal results this morning, with 72% A*/A and 93% A*/B. It has been a challenging two years of learning in the pandemic with lockdowns and isolation periods adding another layer of difficulty to courses which are already academically rigorous and making today’s achievements even more of a cause for celebration!

The Theatre Studies group were not phased by the compromises of their Sixth Form experience. “It did make the practical side hard, but we improvised productively,” commented Tomi Edwards. “It’s been like a family, like a team. It was a really safe space to learn and it’s been fun!” added Head Girl, Lorna Green. “The school was always clear what was going on so that made it easier” added Michael Marlow. The support of the community was appreciated by parents as well as students, with Jasmin Barley’s proud mum, Cindy, reflecting, “It’s a real testament to LP; the School got the best out of her and I don’t think any other school would have done. She got 3 As which is amazing.”

There were plenty of proud parents on the Park including Peter and Rachel Milhofer, whose daughter Annie is off to the university where they met, Christ’s College, Cambridge to read Engineering in the Autumn. “It feels really awesome. I didn’t know if I was going to make Cambridge but I have. It feels like the world decided to make everything a little more exciting!” Annie, whose 4 A*s in Maths, Further Maths, DT and Physics, was part of the DT class with 100% A*/A grades. Fellow DT student, Tom Clark, was inspired by Annie’s brother, Josh, an Old Leightonian currently studying at Loughborough, to follow in his footsteps to study Product Design Engineering. “When he described it, I knew it was what I wanted to do as it enables me to continue with everything that I have really enjoyed about DT at Leighton Park.” said Tom.

Tom’s twin, Harry, who also studied Maths and Physics at A Level is pursuing a different direction as his AAB results confirm his dream place of Business Management at the University of Liverpool. The boys are as pleased for each other as they are for themselves; “I came in this morning expecting to have to sort out a back-up plan but I’m over the moon!” enthused Harry. “We have spent so much time planning for what could go wrong, it is so great to have our first choices!”
Top scoring subjects included Maths (72% A*/A), Further Maths (88% A*/A), Physics (93% A*/B) and Art (80% A*/A). The School, having won the Award for Excellence in STEAM (Science Technology Engineering Arts and Maths) Education last summer, combines the arts and creativity with the rigour of analytical subjects. Combining these habits of mind with innovation, teamwork and creative
