A Level Results
A quarter of all this year’s A Levels were graded A* (the highest accolade possible) and 57 per cent of all grades were A*/A.
Another year of outstanding success has seen 85 per cent of our Sixth Formers’ A Level results graded A* to B.
Mr Ceri Jones, Headmaster, says: “Congratulations to our Upper Sixth who have achieved such a strong set of exam results. I am equally delighted that they have ensured that their time at school has been spent not just focusing on how to pass an exam but also on developing themselves as individuals, developing their own interests and passions and making lifelong friendships. We believe that all our pupils are capable of great things and support all of them to become the best that they can be, and it is great to see the variety and range of university destinations and courses they are moving on to.
As ever, there are some stunning individual performances in these results and from an academic point of view I am particularly pleased that another dozen or so pupils will be joining the fifty Caterhamians that we have sent to Oxford and Cambridge over the past three years.
This strong set of results is underpinned by the hard work and commitment of both pupils and teachers, and also by an approach to education that encourages pupils to think and not just to regurgitate.”
