Chenderit School celebrates another year of excellent results at A Level

15 Aug 2019

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 the school.

22% of all results have been graded A* or A, up from 20% last year; 42% of all results have been graded A*, A or B, the same as last year and 71% of all results have been graded A*-C, an improvement from 69% last year. The overall pass rate is 98%. Our students have exceeded the challenging targets we set, based on their prior attainment and over 80% of our students have gained entry to their first choice university.

I am delighted for Chenderit’s A level students who, once again, have achieved excellent results as a consequence of their hard work and the support of committed and highly skilled staff. Today’s results are based on the new, more demanding A level specifications and the results achieved will enable almost all students to move on to their destination of choice

There are many outstanding individual performances to be celebrated and all of our students have exciting degree courses, apprenticeships, employment opportunities and gap year plans on the horizon. George Tait is now taking up a place at Loughborough University, and Rosie Pinder will attend the University of Nottingham: each achieved two A* grades and one A grade. In addition, the following students secured 2 A* - A grades with other good grades and are now planning the following pathways: Katie Files (University of Leicester), Hazel Fisher (Aberystwyth University), Alice Griffin (gap year), Sydney Shaw (University for the Creative Arts), Dylan Taylor (Swansea University), James Waite (apprenticeship), Katie Smallwood (Nottingham Trent University), Emily Smith (Hartpury University) and Elliott Warner-Drew (gap year employment). Our students excelled themselves and are to be congratulated: we are proud of the efforts of all our students.

I would like to pass on my thanks to the whole school community and congratulate our A level students, on behalf of the school and the Governing Body. These results demonstrate that Chenderit 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.

Jane Cartwright, Headteacher.
