With schools returning to normal exam conditions for the summer of 2022, we are delighted that our A-level results have continued to be high and to be able to celebrate our best-ever set of GCSE results, with over half of the results falling into the highest bracket - grades 9 and 8. 

A-Level Results

A total of 180 pupils completed their A- level studies in 2022, all studying three or more A-level subjects. Overall, the school achieved a 100% pass rate with 51% of A -levels graded A*/A and 74% A*- B grades. An impressive 27 pupils secured a straight set of A* grades in three or more subjects with 7 pupils receiving four A* grades and one of our boarders, Bon Tang, achieving five A* grades. 

In addition to their A-levels, 85% of pupils also took the Extended Project Qualification with 29% achieving an A*- A grade.  

All 11 of our Oxbridge entrants secured their places at Oxford and Cambridge universities in 2022 and over 80% of pupils secured their first choice university, including the 18 pupils who chose to study medicine, dentistry and veterinary.

Many congratulations to our Class of 2022 and a big welcome to our ON network. 


GCSE Results

This year the school celebrated record-breaking GCSE results. A total of 120 pupils sat their GCSEs and over half of the results fell into the highest grade brackets of 9 and 8 (A*). 

Pupils performed well across all of the GCSE subjects with particularly high grades in each of the sciences, geography, mathematics, computing, religious studies, design & technology, business studies, history and music. Chemistry topped the board with 92% of grades at 9-7 (A*/A), followed closely by physics at 90%.

From pre-Covid days to 2022, the school has continued to see a steady rise in results. Overall, 54% of this year's results were 8s and 9s (A*), 73% of exams were graded 7 -9 (A -A*) and 89% were graded 9-6 (A*-B), taking the overall pass rate to 99%.

The vast majority of pupils studied ten GCSEs with an impressive 28 pupils achieving grades 7 to 9 in all ten of their subjects. Eleven pupils achieved all 8s and 9s in their ten subjects with two of those pupils securing a complete set of ten grade 9 GCSEs.
