The School celebrated another excellent year for A Level results in what was its largest ever year group, with 80% of the exams awarded the top A*, A or B grades.
There are many individual success stories in this year’s results, in particular for the 53 pupils who gained at least 3 A grades, 12 of whom gained 3 A* grades or more.
Last year’s Head of School Tom Breese achieved 3 A* results in Chemistry, French and Latin with an A grade in Maths.
Impressive too was the performance of Ursule Taujanskaite who secured 5 A* grades in Maths, Further Maths, Biology, Chemistry and French to secure her place at Cambridge University where she has also won a Choral Scholarship.
Nat Chumbala, Loren Kell and Martha Pownall also secured A* results in all of their subjects.
The Headmaster, Mark Turner, was delighted at his pupils’ success: “I warmly congratulate both pupils and teachers on these impressive results. I am pleased that pupils will be able to take up first choice university places as a reward for all of their hard work.”

We celebrated one of our best ever set of GCSE results, with a near record 70.8% of the exams awarded an A* or A grade and a record-breaking 43.8% of results achieving the top A* grade.
Nine pupils – Sam Bayliss, Thomas Brennan, Oliver Bureau, Imogen Evans, Elias Harrison, Oliver Hodges, Henry Mayhew, Angus Moore, Lucien Whitworth – each gained 10 straight A*, and 31 pupils gained either A* or A grades in all their subjects.
Headmaster Mark Turner was delighted: "We are very proud of our pupils who have shown great ambition to achieve these very impressive results. Credit is also due to the dedication of all our staff and the support of parents. The future is potentially very bright indeed for these pupils as they embark upon their Sixth Form studies."
