A Level Results 2023

Published by Royal Alexandra and Albert School on Wednesday 13th of September 2023

We are proud to announce the achievements of our Year 13 cohort in their 2023 A Level and BTEC examinations. Our students' determination and resilience are evident in their grades, which reflect their enthusiasm for learning and personal growth, in what has continued to be a challenging landscape.


Across A Level and BTEC subjects, our students showcased their commitment to their studies with many achieving commendable results. Their success underscores the value of a well-rounded education that caters to diverse aspirations and pathways.


Of the students who chose to progress to higher education, at least 76% secured a place at their first choice or second choice university. This year, subjects such as Art & Design, Economics, Product Design, and Media Studies BTEC were particularly strong. 100% of entries for Art & Design and Product Design achieved grades A*-C. In Media Studies BTEC 100% of students achieved a Distinction or Distinction*. Additionally, in Economics 55.5% of all entries achieved an A* or A.


Maddie Speck was one of the first students to collect their results in the morning. She was delighted with her grades of A* in Economics, A in Physics and A in Psychology. She said, “I can’t believe it! I can’t believe it’s all worked out. It’s such a relief.” Maddie will now go on to study Politics and International Relations at the University of Manchester.


Mollie Malik was equally as pleased with her results, but had a tense wait for confirmation of her university place. There was high emotion as well as tears, including from teachers, once it was confirmed that she had been accepted to study Biology at her first choice university, the University of York.


William Latter was another individual success story. Will had experienced disappointment last year after not being able to secure a place on his desired course of study at his preferred university. But Will had a clear goal and plenty of determination! He chose to re-sit his Year 13 again - and take on the challenge to complete Economics A Level in one year! It was a success. He achieved an A in Economics, A in Biology and A in Politics. Will has been accepted to read Law at the University of Bristol.


Will said of his results, “One year ago, I parked in the same spot, the weather was the same and the same teachers were present, but I felt very differently and didn’t have a university place. This year, I collected my results, got into my first choice university and I’m going to study law, which is what I’ve always wanted to do. During this year, I’ve worked very hard, and I’ve never taken a ‘no’ as the final answer. I’m very happy that I persevered to achieve my goal.” Will hopes to become a lawyer after completing his studies at the University of Bristol.


We are proud of the broad range of interests shown by our students, reflected in many of their university course choices and chosen pathways, paving the way for an extensive array of opportunities and future destinations in higher education, apprenticeships, and the workplace.


At the Royal Alexandra and Albert School we remain committed to fostering an environment where every student's accomplishments are celebrated. The perseverance, adaptability, and determination demonstrated by our students throughout their final year are equally as noteworthy as their grades, and will undoubtedly serve them well in their future endeavours.


Headteacher, Mr M.P. Thomas, expressed pride in our students' achievements, saying, "At the Royal Alexandra and Albert School we are dedicated to providing a well rounded education for each of our students, preparing them for the world with hope, optimism, compassion and empathy. This year's results highlight not only their academic accomplishments but also their ability to overcome obstacles, embrace change and build diverse and lasting relationships. I am confident that these experiences will mould them into resilient, resourceful individuals ready to contribute positively to their communities and make a difference in the world.”


We extend our congratulations to our Year 13 students on their individual accomplishments and extend our sincere thanks to our dedicated Sixth Form colleagues for their guidance and commitment to our students over the past two years.
