A Level Results 2019!
High Storrs School A Level results
August 14th 2019
Following last year’s A Level results, which were significantly above national average (placing High Storrs in the top 20% of schools in the country), results are again strong across the school. This year’s cohort has been bigger than ever – with 200 students studying A Levels.
In all subjects – and at all abilities – High Storrs students have achieved remarkable results. This includes 7 students who achieved 3 or more A* grades. 39 students achieved one or more A* grades; indeed, 33% of all grades achieved were at A or A*! Early analysis indicates that overall progress is again positive against the national picture. Director of Sixth Form Laura Mason said “The hard work of this motivated cohort has really paid off. Today we are celebrating some truly fabulous top grades but also, and just as importantly, many students who have really applied themselves and achieved well beyond their targets”.
From traditional subjects including Economics, Chemistry and Mathematics to more niche courses such as Art and Dance, High Storrs School has proved that they can deliver high quality education across the spectrum of courses. For example, in Economics, students achieving A*-B grades has increased to 74%. Similarly, in Mathematics, 73% of students achieved A*-B grades, with Modern Foreign Languages and Dance having similar successes.
Headteacher Claire Tasker said “We are proud to offer a diverse range of courses, and today’s results show that students who join High Storrs Sixth Form get excellent support and teaching and achieve fabulous results from all starting points.”
Such strong results allow High Storrs students to move onto competitive and ambitious next stages of their education and training, with over 160 set to take up university places in September. Students have secured places to study at Oxford and Cambridge Universities, with many also moving onto some of the most prestigious Performing Arts Schools in the country.
