Warminster School's delight at A-level results
Following the success of the IB students earlier in the summer, A-level pupils at Warminster School have cause to celebrate with the publication of another strong set of results.
6% of all results were at the exacting A* grade which is awarded to candidates who achieved over 90% in the final examination. In addition around one in every five entries achieved the highest grades, A* or A grade. The overall pass rate was an impressive 95%.
Individuals who excelled included Charlotte Jones from Salisbury with an A*, two As and a B grade and Christopher Stone from Marlow in Buckinghamshire who recorded an A*, A and a B grade. Ernest Chen and Nicholas Lai from Hong Kong amassed 8 A Levels between them including 4 at either A* or A grade.
Charlotte can now start planning a career in Medicine in the future and Christopher will read Music at Cardiff University. Hannah Greening will take up her place to read French and Arabic at St Andrews whilst Head Girl Molly Smith and Rebecca Wicks look forward to starting Geography and English respectively at Exeter in 2013 after completing gap years.
Headmaster Martin Priestley comments:
“I am delighted with the Sixth Form examination results this summer. We offer our sixth formers an exciting choice between A-levels and the International Baccalaureate and our leavers from each of these programmes deserve congratulation following the publication of these results.
I have no doubt that once again entry to top universities will be extremely competitive but our students have put themselves in a strong position through their ability, hard work and commitment.
Indeed, combining the results of our IB Diploma graduates with those of our A-level cohort, the Upper Sixth students averaged over 340 UCAS points each. This equates to A, A, B grades at A-level – an impressive achievement!”
