A Level Results Bring Bright Future for Class of 2022

Celebrations today at Caterham School as A Level results envelopes opened doors to Oxbridge, to medical school, and to top UK and overseas universities. 70 per cent of all grades awarded were A* and A grades, of which 40 per cent the top A*, and over 90 per cent were A* to B grades, once again securing Caterham’s position in the ‘premier league’ of UK schools. A total of 21 pupils achieved all A* grades and the average holding for a Caterhamian is A*AA.

95 per cent of Caterhamians achieved the university destination of their choice, with 85 per cent securing their first choice university and course. This is set against a national picture of a challenging UCAS admissions cycle. The places secured reflect the high ambition of Caterham pupils and the evolving picture of higher education choices. Alongside the traditional top UK university choices Caterham pupils are increasingly choosing and securing places at overseas universities and with leading global firms’ degree apprenticeships.

A long-established tradition of Caterham medics continues with eight Caterham pupils now taking up their place to read medicine in the autumn in a highly competitive year. Universities in the US and across the globe have been popular with the class of 2022 with pupils heading overseas to New York, Boston, Hong Kong and Melbourne to begin their university studies.

The Headmaster, Ceri Jones, said: “today has brought fantastic news for our Upper Sixth Form and I am incredibly proud of each and every one of them as they move on to exciting new adventures.  We must not forget that this cohort of young people have succeeded across two years of Sixth Form which held a great deal of uncertainty. With the support and expertise of their teachers they have achieved top grades through a blend of classroom and online learning. They have proved themselves to be resilient and focussed, they deserve every bit of their success today. As they move on, I know that they will take the fun and friendship they have enjoyed here at school and flourish in their ambition.”


“Today’s good news is shared by pupils, teachers and parents whose support and partnership with school is a significant factor in these top results. Thanks are due to our hardworking and inspiring team of teachers who showed great innovation and determination through virtual school, and ensuring pupils were prepared for each and every eventuality.”
