Outstanding A-Level results – 84% A*, A & B Grades

Posted on August 18, 2016


Once again our Sixth Form students have posted some incredible A-Level results with a 100% pass rate! Over half of all those who sat the examinations gained A* and A grades and 84% achieved A*, A and B grades.

In the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ), an incredible 86% of students gained A* grades and no one scored less than an A which is truly an astonishing feat!

We are delighted that so many of our students have successfully gained places to numerous Russell Group universities to study a very diverse range of subjects from Aeronautical Engineering, Architecture, English, Fashion Design, History, Natural Sciences, Physics, Physiotherapy, Politics and Psychology. In addition, six students have gained places to study Medicine.

Esther Maltby from Sidmouth scored 3 A* Grades and 1 A Grade (in Maths, Further Maths, Physics and Art) and was absolutely delighted. “I didn’t think that my exams had gone well and I’m just so relieved and happy. I’m going to Imperial College, London to study Aeronautical Engineering but I’m off Interrailing tomorrow with a bunch of other friends from the Maynard so instead of celebrating tonight, I’ll be packing my rucksack!”

Another student who is in celebratory mood is Olivia Crawford who was awarded 2 A* Grades and 2 A Grades to secure her place at Birmingham University to study Medicine. “To be honest it hasn’t hit me yet. It’s a complete shock and I’m over the moon! It’s been such a long process. I decided on medicine when I was 12 years old so to be finally able to go to Medical School is just fantastic”

Our huge congratulations to all the students on reaping justifiable rewards from all their hard efforts over the past two years. We are proud of them all and wish them every success for the future!
