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.
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.
Jontie Honey and Hannah Mudge celebrated achieving three A* grades each in their A levels and are planning to go to Cambridge University together. Jontie, who studied A level Biology, Chemistry and Mathematics as well as AS level English Literature and the extended project qualification, is planning to study Medicine. Hannah, whose subjects included Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics and AS Level History will be studying Natural Sciences.
Also celebrating success was Hettie Russell, formerly of the New Forest Small School. Hettie’s excellent A level results in English Literature, Law and History have secured her place reading English at The Kings College, London.
