Press Release: Chenderit School’s A Level Results

18 Aug 2016

Chenderit School celebrates another year of strong results at A Level

Chenderit students are again celebrating very many successes in today’s A-level results, marking another year of strong academic and personal achievements for students at the school. 23% of all results are graded A* or A, 48% of all results are graded A*, A or B and an overall pass rate of 97% has been achieved.

Headteacher Jane Cartwright said: "I am thrilled for Chenderit’s A level students who, once again, with the support of dedicated staff and their families, have achieved excellent results. Today’s results reflect the diligence and determination of so many in our community, over so many years and I am delighted that the futures that our students dreamed of can now be realised with virtually all of our students moving on to their destinations of choice.”

There are many outstanding individual performances to be celebrated with the majority of our students having exciting degree courses on the horizon. The following students achieved 3 or more A* - A grades: Verity Babbs (History of Art - Oxford), Katie Beckett (Classics - Royal Holloway), Ellie Cousins (Food and Nutrition - Sheffield Hallam), Reuben Cox (Maths - Warwick), Paula Dewey (Chemistry - York), Annie Quy (Medicine - Cardiff), Jess Sharman (Psychology - Newman), Seren Thomas (Japanese and Spanish - Cardiff).  In addition, the following students secured 2 A* - A grades with other good grades, Ellen Forbes (Scenic Arts - Royal Central School of Speech and Drama), Laura Howlett (International Events Management - Surrey), Sophie Paul (Art Foundation), Elisabeth Richardson (English and Art History - Sussex), Katherine Shaw (Psychology - Edinburgh).  Many students exceeded their target grades and are to be congratulated: we are proud of the efforts of all our students.


Mrs Cartwright stated, "On behalf of the school and the Governing Body, I would like to pass on my thanks to the whole school community and congratulate our A level students. The support our students receive from the school and their families is essential in ensuring such success. These results demonstrate that our school provides high quality education to students in this area and, very importantly, that our students are challenged and supported to achieve their very best. I congratulate all students and wish them well as they take up their places at university, in employment, or as they begin their gap year. I wish each and every student success in the future.”
