Students at St Albans School celebrated a fifth successive year in which more than 90 per cent of results were graded A* to B, with around a quarter of all grades achieving A*.

Sixty-one students achieved at least one A* grade, with Ganesh Chauhan and Rachel Hoffman both achieving a clean sweep of 4 A* grades. Ganesh will read Product Design Engineering at Loughborough and Rachel Chemistry at Durham where she will be joined by her twin-sister, Camilla, who also made a significant contribution to the family’s tally of A* grades.

Among the school’s successful Oxbridge candidates are Kirsty Mitchell (Philosophy, Politics and Economics at Merton College) and Joshua Southworth from Felden (Chemistry at Pembroke College), both with 3 A*s and an A. With the same grades, Milo Knights goes to Durham to read PPE and James Thompson will study Geophysical Sciences at Leeds.

Congratulating the students and teachers, headmaster Jonathan Gillespie said: “With continued downward pressure on A-Level grades nationally, we are delighted to see an increase in our A* and A grades which is greatly to the credit of our hard-working students as well as our inspirational teaching staff.

“My warm congratulations go to our leavers together with my very best wishes for their university studies.”
