Students Excel in A Level Exam Results

William Farr is celebrating a record set of A level results.

The school has achieved the best ever percentage of pupils achieving A* to B grades for a decade.

Of the 133 pupils who sat A levels at the school a staggering 82.5% achieved grades of C and higher and the average UCAS points per pupil of 305 was the second highest since the sixth form began in 1997.

Nearly half the pupils who sat the exams achieved at least one A* or A grade – double last year’s national average.

The percentages of students achieving A*to B grades has increased by five per cent on last year’s figures and for A*to C grades is nearly nine per cent up on last year.

The results include all A levels sat by pupils at the school, excluding general studies, and come despite numbers in the sixth form being the second highest ever.

The overall pass rate for the school for results, not including the general studies results, came in at 99.5%.

“We are absolutely delighted with these results. The pupils and staff have worked really hard to ensure the students get the best results possible and give themselves the best options for their futures.

“We had a record number of A level entries from our sixth form this year so we are even more pleased that everyone has risen to the challenges and posted some exceptional results.

“Although our overall results are important to us and we are proud of what we have achieved we must not forget that that each number represents an individual pupil."
