Highclare Sixth Form Celebrates a Four Year High in A Level Exam Results.

Posted: 22nd August 2019

Highclare Sixth Form is thrilled to be celebrating yet another year of superb exam success. 

We are delighted to announce that U6 pupils have attained an impressive four year high in examination results, with an amazing 52% of all grades at A* to B with 26% at A* to A.  A fantastic achievement particularly as today it has been reported that the UK has seen the proportion of students achieving top grades at A-level dipping to the lowest level for nearly a decade.

Among the Highclare pupils celebrating this morning were Maariya Suleman, our Head Girl, who will be studying Mathematics with Philosophy at Sheffield University, Daniella Palmer who has chosen to study Business and Management at Exeter University, Celyn Dugdale who will be studying Cellular and Medical Medicine at Bristol University and Daniel Hurst, our Head Boy who began his education at Highclare Pre-Preparatory School and will now be continuing his educational journey at Nottingham University studying History. 

Dr R Luker, Headmaster commented “I am extremely proud of the exceptional individual achievements attained by our U6 pupils.  From Pre-Prep to U6, Highclare School is dedicated to educating the whole person, and for students to achieve such superb A-level results whilst taking part in a full co- and extra-curricular timetable they have not only fulfilled their academic potential but have enhanced their personal skills, equipping them for their future in their chosen profession. This success is a culmination of a lot of hard work and commitment from all concerned and will stand them in good stead as they embark on the next step of their lives, we wish them all the very best.”
