Posted on: 15th Aug

The Downs School has achieved an outstanding set of A Level results this year. For the 120 Year 13 students who sat A Level examinations or BTECs this Summer, the results reflect the hard work and commitment the students’ have given to their learning.  An impressive 8% of entries gained A* grades, 28% A*-A grades, 56% A*- B grades and 79% A*-C grades.

Headteacher Chris Prosser said: “Our students have produced excellent results and I am really proud of what they have achieved. There are so many wonderful success stories that lie beneath these statistics and the students, staff and parents worked so hard to make it happen - it was a real team effort!! My biggest pleasure is knowing that so many of these students will now be able to access their chosen destinations, whether that will be university, apprenticeships or a career.  I wish them all the best on their next adventure.”

Deputy Headteacher Phil Wilson added: “Once again we are really proud of what our students have achieved. Every single result reflects a great deal of hard work, both from the students and their teachers. The results are a real team effort.”

Head of Sixth Form Pete Hogan said: “Right from the start, the students in this Year Group have really gelled together, creating a really positive ethos. The most pleasing part of my job is seeing the students’ hard work pay off, as they get the places on university courses and apprenticeships that they have been working towards for two years.”
