Students at Queen Ethelburga’s Collegiate, made up of two senior schools at Thorpe Underwood, are celebrating exceptional A level and BTEC results.
Thanks to their “focus and outstanding positivity” they were able to overcome the challenges of being the first to sit traditional exams since the pandemic.
Students in QE Faculty achieved 86% A*-B grades at A Level and in QE College achieved 96% percent A*-B grades. The percentage of BTEC Distinction* and Distinction grades in QE Faculty was 81%.
This year has seen students aim high with a wide range of first choice university places achieved at Cambridge, Imperial College London, the London School of Economics, Durham, King’s College London, University College London, and Bath, amongst other excellent UK and worldwide universities.
Principal of the Collegiate, Daniel Machin, said: “We are very proud of every single one of our Year 13 students, and I would like to wish each of them well as they continue their educational journey and move on from QE.
“The fantastic results they have received today are sure to set them up for exceptional futures. However, if the last two years has taught us anything, it is the importance we should place on factors which our students display in abundance; those of compassion, humility, kindness, selflessness, resilience, generosity, and courage.
“Our students’ determination to develop all of these skills which are crucial for future life, ensures they continue to achieve the highest possible standards in all that they do, and all our staff have been privileged to have been able to support them on their individual journeys.
“We are delighted to be able to celebrate such a fantastic set of results for 2022 at QE, and share in our students’ success.’
