An outstanding results day for Foundation Schools’ A-Level and IB students.

A-Level and IB students at Trinity, Old Palace of John Whitgift and Whitgift Schools have once again received outstanding results. The top grades awarded are testament to the hard work and commitment from both students and staff alike.

  • Trinity School students achieved their best ever A* rate and second best A*-A rate. A record 60 pupils (out of 140 candidates) achieved three A grades or better. Overall the school achieved a 100% pass rate for the ninth year in row. The vast majority of pupils will go to university this autumn with destinations as diverse as Oxford, Cambridge, Imperial College, LSE, Durham, Birmingham, Bristol and Southampton to name but a few.

Mark Bishop, Headmaster, was full of praise for pupils and teachers in the School and said: “I would like to congratulate our students for all their hard work and also our staff for all the guidance and support that went into achieving these results.”

  • Old Palace of John Whitgift School is delighted to announce an excellent set of A-Level results. 97% of Old Palace A-Level grades are A*-C across the entire curriculum range. Almost 44% of all grades are A* or A, and students will now continue their studies at leading universities including Oxford, Durham, St. Andrew’s, Warwick, Imperial, UCL and King’s College.

Carol Jewell, Head teacher, said:  “My congratulations go to our students for an extremely strong set of public examination results. There were a number of outstanding individual performances - 12 girls achieved at least 3 A grades or above and I am proud of their commitment to study throughout their years at Old Palace. We wish all our leavers the best of luck as they continue their educational journey at university.”

  • Whitgift School is delighted to report another year of excellent results, with 91.5% of all grades awarded at A*-B.  The A*-B rate for A Level and the IB (International Baccalaureate) Diploma combined was 92.5%.   A record-breaking number of A* grades have been awarded, and the vast majority of the cohort have achieved what they need to gain places at their first-choice university.

Paul Dinnen, Head of IB, said: “The results of an educational programme like the IB Diploma can never be reduced to mere exam scores. Nonetheless, the staff are overjoyed to see such a large number of students achieve so highly this year. With such wonderful academic success, and the personal skills they have developed over the past two years, these students have bright careers ahead of them.”

Martin Corney, Chief Executive, The Whitgift Foundation, said: “This year’s excellent A-Level and IB results have once again reflected our schools’ passion, commitment and dedication to providing a truly outstanding education, giving our young people the very best start in life, as were the wishes of our Founder, Archbishop John Whitgift, over 400 years ago. I would like to congratulate each and every student and wish them well as they embark on the next chapter of their lives.
