Chenderit School celebrates excellent results at A Level

17 Aug 2017

Chenderit students are again celebrating very many successes in today’s A-level results, marking another year of strong academic and personal achievements for students at our school. An overall pass rate of 99% has been achieved with 23% of all results being graded A* or A  and 47% of all results being graded A*, A or B.


"I am so pleased for Chenderit’s A level students who, once again, have achieved brilliant results with the support of talented and dedicated staff and encouragement from their families. Today’s results have come from a mix of old and reformed A levels and the results achieved will enable virtually all students to move on to their destination of choice.” said Jane Cartwright, Headteacher.


There are many outstanding individual performances to be celebrated with the majority of our students having exciting degree courses on the horizon. The following students achieved 3 or more A* - A grades:

Naomi Atkins (Medicine – University of Birmingham)
Max Forbes (Physics –University of Exeter)
Megan Simpson (Communication and Media –University of Leeds). 


In addition, the following students secured 2 A* - A grades with other good grades:

Ellie Craddock (Sociology –University of Warwick)
Helen Davis (GAP year abroad)
Katharine Dowdall (Veterinary Physiotherapy – Warwick College)
Ben Gardiner (Politics and International Relations – Lancaster University)
Camilla Hancock (Economics – University  of Southampton)
Lucy Koster (Archaeology and Anthropology – University of Oxford)
Thomas Stuart (Mathematics –University of Bath). 

Liberty Gardner, Amy Passey and Georgia Talbot all achieved a double distinction* in Health and Social Care and will move into working and training within the social sector. Many students exceeded their target grades and are to be congratulated: we are proud of the efforts of all our students.

"On behalf of the school and the Governing Body, I would like to pass on my thanks to the whole school community and congratulate our A level students. These results demonstrate that our school provides high quality education to students and, very importantly, that our students are challenged and supported to achieve their very best. I congratulate all students and wish them well as they take up their places at university, in employment, or as they begin their gap year. I wish each and every student success in the future”
