Students at Peter Symonds College were today celebrating another outstanding year for A Level exam results. The College’s excellent pass rate has been maintained once again at 99% with over a third of the grades awarded being at A* or A grade.

At A level a total of 490 students achieved at least two A* or A grades, and a remarkable 275 achieved at least three A* or A grades.

Over 300 of the A* grades awarded were in the subjects of Mathematics and Sciences alone. Also remarkably, 189 students who studied the extended project qualification alongside their A Levels or AS Levels achieved either A* or A grade.

Matthew Pawley and Stephen Carville

Among the college’s high achievers is Matthew Pawley (pictured with Principal Stephen Carville), formerly of The Clere school, who came in to the College today to collect his results. Matthew achieved A* in Economics, Mathematics, Further Mathematics and Physics as well as an A in AS Level Chemistry and is looking forward to studying Mathematics at Cambridge University or Imperial College London.
