Christ’s Hospital’s A Level pupils are celebrating what the school describes as a strong set of results, with just under 70% of all grades awarded at A* – B and some outstanding individual performances by pupils.
Five of the students are heading for a career in medicine after their exam success.
Together with the school’s best ever International Baccalaureate examination results, which were released last month, taken by one-third of the cohort, the overall A* – B percentage for the year group is just under 80%. The top A Level pupils this year included Jea-Hong Shin (A*, A*, A*, A)Hans Chan (A*, A*, A) Rufus Jordana (A*, A*, A) Febechi Okolidoh (A*, A*, A) Elizabeth Coster (A*, A*, B) Lucy Bridges (A*, A, A) Olivia Crossman (A*, A, A) Campbell Docherty (A*, A, A) Billie Edwards (A*, A, A) and Eloise Wroe Wright (A*, A, A)
The school says that having received their results, pupils receive excellent support and guidance to ensure that they get the best possible choice of course or job and once again this year the majority of pupils will be going on to top universities with five of this year’s leavers securing places to read Medicine. There were also some excellent results achieved by a number of Christ’s Hospital’s academic departments.
In particular, the Art Department, for the second year in succession, achieved an outstanding 100% A*-B and the Philosophy Department gained an impressive 83% of grades at A*-B.
Head Master John Franklin said of the A2 performance: “Well done to all our pupils and their teachers. I am very proud to say that with the good advice from our Head of Sixth Form and her team, the majority of our pupils were placed in their first choice university. Throughout its long history, Christ’s Hospital has equipped all its leavers, whatever their social or economic background,with the education they need to flourish at university and in their chosen career as well as having a strong sense of responsibility towards others.”
The A Level results are in addition to the recently published IB exam results when just over half thecohort gained 38 points of more, the equivalent of at least four A*s at A2 level. All the offers atuniversities were secured, including places to read English at Oxford, Classics at Cambridge,Engineering and Biochemistry and Imperial and Medicine at Queen Mary (London) and the University of East Anglia.
