Another bumper year of A Level results for sixth formers!
The hard work and commitment of Hinchley Wood students has paid off once again, with some excellent A Level results:
27 per cent of all grades were achieved at A or A*, 60 per cent A*-B and 85 per cent A*-C the latter setting a new school record. 43 students achieved three or more A*-B grades with 109 of the 110 students in the year group achieving two or more A Level passes.
88 of the total 94 students who were looking to go to university in September 2017, have secured places at their first choice of university. The results also saw a number of very impressive individual performances, with Joseph Dunn and Caspar Yim securing three A* grades and Max Charlton, Curtis Court and Callum House all securing two A*s and one A grade.
Caspar, who is going on to study International Business Management at Heriot Watt University in Malaysia, said: “I'm hugely pleased with my grades and have spent the whole morning beaming! It's been lovely seeing all my friends get their university places. I've spent pretty much the whole summer worrying about results day so it's wonderful to finally be able to relax for a bit and stop being so nervous.” With his three A stars in Maths, Further Maths and Physics, Joseph is heading to Bristol University to read Maths.
These excellent results come at a time of considerable volatility in A Level results nationally following the introduction of new A Level specifications and the move to linear courses.
“The results are fitting reward for all the hard work of a very talented group of young people, who have been ably supported and guided by a team of committed staff and their parents or carers” said Mr Bartlett. “Congratulations to all our students on their outstanding achievements this summer and we wish them well as they head off to the next stage of their education.”
