Students celebrate A Level results
Thursday 17 August 2017
Sixth-form students are celebrating with their families and teachers today after achieving very strong A-level results.
Richard Palmer, said: “We are extremely
proud of our pupils and their teachers who have overcome a challenging
landscape and ever moving goalposts to achieve an excellent set of results.”
“It’s pleasing to see success despite this backdrop of National uncertainty, and we are just as proud of those students who have achieved four A*s and are heading to Cambridge as we are of those who have achieved two C’s and have assured a place on their chosen vocational course.”
Overall, 76% of grades were A* to C, 58% were A* to B, with 35% of all A Levels graded at A* and A. Students cemented their places at a host of top universities including Oxbridge, UCL and Imperial College London.
Richard Palmer continued: “St Chris has a strong tradition of celebrating students as individuals and a St Chris education is about so much more than just academic achievement. I am confident that this year’s leavers are well-rounded and resourceful, have a strong social conscience and moral courage and that they leave the School with the skills and confidence to thrive in the modern world.”
