Students at The Abbey are celebrating wonderful A Level results today that will see them go on to the brightest of futures.
In total 40% of all grades were at A* and 72% A*-A. Over 15% of students achieved straight A* grades. This would be remarkable in any context but against the backdrop of disruption in recent years it is an extraordinary achievement.
The range of courses and destinations that await this cohort is inspiring. Students are heading to RADA to study theatre, Central St Martins for art, university courses in the Arts, medicine, maths, engineering and other STEM subjects, social science and more. Some are heading to the most competitive degree apprenticeships. The scope of their future study is a testament to their passions and interests, and their freedom to be and to express themselves.
There are so many wonderful outcomes to celebrate. Of the students achieving straight A*s, two head to the LSE for economics, and the others to Oxford for Maths, Cambridge for Natural Sciences, Exeter for English, Durham for Modern Foreign Languages and Culture, Warwick for Engineering, Nottingham for Economics and Bath for Chemistry.
What matters most is every individual going on to an experience that is right for them. Our passion is supporting and helping each student to find that path and to follow it with confidence and readiness to embrace all that it offers.
For some this starts in our nursery, Little Knellies; for others at our wonderful Junior School or when they arrive at Senior School. Wherever the journey began, they have grown into inquisitive and brave learners who will make their mark on the world. The Abbey’s single-sex environment fosters the confidence to make mistakes and flourish among peers who share a passion for living and discovery, free from gender stereotyping and constraint.
Head of The Abbey School, Will le Fleming, commented: “We are delighted by the results attained by all our A Level students, which highlight the hard work and dedication these young people have shown throughout their studies. Their tenacity and spirit will be clear in everything they go on to do and achieve.
“The warmest and most heartfelt thanks go to our inspirational teaching staff. Their tireless efforts to develop and extend our students’ thirst for learning is a joy to witness. Without them, these outstanding results would not have been possible.”
