Staff at Queen Ethelburga’s described their A level students achievements as outstanding today.
This year’s system for allocating results has been “exceptionally demanding for students and staff”, the school said, with quality assurance by schools and examination boards being rigorous and comprehensive, over a period of many months.
“With this in mind, QE students are rightly delighted with their achievements, which reflect fully their dedication and work-ethic during the past two years.”
Queen Ethelburga’s have two senior schools at their Thorpe Underwood home. Students in The College achieved 85% percent A/A at A Level (96 per cent A/B), with students in The Faculty achieving 77% percent A/A (92 percent A/B). The percentage of D*/D grades in The Faculty was 75%.
Students are looking ahead to bright futures with an exceptional range of first choice university places achieved at Oxford, Cambridge, Imperial College London, King’s College London and Manchester University amongst other excellent UK and worldwide universities.
Speaking today as students receive their results, acting principal Dan Machin, said: “We are immensely proud of the fantastic achievements from all of our students, and I would like to commend each and every one of them for their resilience, work ethic and determination to succeed.
“Their support for staff and each other has been exceptional, and this year more than ever they have embodied our ethos of mutual respect, support, tolerance and compassion.
“Our staff and students have embraced our blended learning approach this year, ensuring that they continue to achieve at the highest possible standards, whether studying online or in person.
“This has given a comprehensive evidence base on which to assess today’s results, but also allowed us to ensure that our students are fully prepared and inspired for the next part of their journey. We wish them all the best for the future.”
