HEADTEACHER Karl Newell has praised A Level students at Crompton House School where pupils may yet achieve a 100 percent pass rate
Mr Newell described results released today (August 13) as “excellent” adding: “Students can now look forward to a bright future at university and beyond.”
High achievers Niall Kelly gained 3 A* grades and one A grade while Ella Simpson notched up 2 A* grades and two As.
Both will now study medicine at Imperial College London and Newcastle University respectively.
In total students achieved a 98.7% pass rate for all A Levels with the school anticipating “this could move up to a 100% following appeals.”
Twenty three percent of all A Level grades achieved were A*-A and nearly half of all grades were at A*-B.
Nearly 90 percent of students planning to continue their studies next year are studying at their first choice of university, with another six percent offered their insurance place. Thirty five percent of students are going on to Russell group universities.
“Our Year 13 students may not have sat their final exams but the grades that they have received carry the same value as any other year,” said Mr Newell
“They will allow them to compete on a level playing field with students from previous and future years.
“Over the past two years our A Level students have grown in confidence as they have progressed academically, socially and as leaders within the school
“They can now look forward to a bright future at university and beyond.
“Their excellent results confirm that the class of 2020 have worked incredibly hard over the last two years and deserve considerable praise for their efforts.
“The outstanding commitment of the Crompton House students, staff and parents has been reflected in the overall improvement in results compared to the previous year.”
