Woodbridge School students celebrate best A-level results in over a decade
Students and staff at Woodbridge School are celebrating outstanding results in A-Level examinations this summer, with 64% of students achieving at least one A grade and 39% achieving at least one A*.
Of the 91 students that sat A-level exams at Woodbridge School this year, 87% achieved A*-C grades and over a quarter secured at least three A or A* grades. The average UCAS points achieved were 360, which is equivalent to three A grades.
Three quarters of all papers sat received at least a B grade, 45% were marked at an A grade or higher, and one fifth received an A*, making this the school’s best year for over a decade. The average points per candidate across the whole year worked out at the equivalent of better than three A grades per candidate.
Three students (pictured left) are thrilled to be heading to Oxbridge universities in September. Becky Garnett, who achieved 3 A*s, is off to Worcester College, Oxford, to follow her passion for Biology. Eva Hilger, who achieved two A*s and one A, who will be studying French and Beginners Russian at Somerville College, Oxford, and Fraser Mckee, who achieved one A* and two As, will be studying Law at Downing College, Cambridge.
Becky Garnett said: “It’s a big relief and a big weight off our shoulders. It’s nice to know all the hard work has paid off!”
Ella Hooper (pictured right in the production of ‘Father Time’ taken at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival), obtained four A*s at A-level but has rejected her offer of a place at Oxford University to study Classical Archaeology and Ancient History in favour of an offer from The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama.
Neil Tetley, Headmaster of Woodbridge School, said: “The students should be justifiably proud of their outstanding achievements and we wish them all well in their chosen university and career paths.
“Sixth formers at Woodbridge School thrive academically and personally through working hard but also throwing themselves into sport, drama, music or one of the many other activities here which support their self-development as confident, independent and well balanced young adults. As well as congratulating the students I’d like to thank the teachers and sixth form support team who have dedicated themselves to helping these students flourish.”
