A Level Results

18 Aug 2022

Congratulations to all Chenderit students on their A level results and other level 3 successes. Jane Cartwright, Headteacher, stated: "Our students have shown remarkable resilience over the past two years and these students, who were unable to sit GCSEs in 2020, performed exceptionally well in this summer’s exams, which were the first external assessments they have been able to take. We are proud of all they have achieved and have been celebrating their achievements with them in school this morning - our students have performed brilliantly, in line with or better in virtually all measures when compared with last year and 2019”.

Our overall pass rate this year is 100% with 61% of all results being graded A*, A or B and 29% of all results being graded A* or A. Billy Belstone, Assistant Headteacher and Head of Sixth Form, added: "Our students have exceeded the challenging targets we set and we are delighted that 89% of our students have gained entry to their first choice university, with over 25% of students having gained places at incredibly competitive institutions such as the University of Cambridge and other Russell Group universities. We wish our students success as they embark on their future plans”.
