ST Albans School’s headteacher has expressed his pride as students at the school received their A-level results yesterday.

Sixth formers were full of joy as the majority achieved the grades to go to their first choice university. A total of 16 pupils gained places at Oxford or Cambridge, with others heading to Warwick, Trinity College, Dublin and University College, London.

Over two thirds of results were graded A* or A, with a total of 69 pupils successfully achieving three or more of the top grades. Overall almost 93 per cent of all results received were A*, A or B.

The school also commended several individual performances, including Tom de Sousa, who achieved 3 A*s at A-level, an A in his extended project and two A grades at AS, to confirm his place at Oxford, and Hannah Moran who achieved three A* grades and an A at A-level, plus an A in AS general studies, securing her a place at University College, London.

Headteacher Andrew Grant congratulated the pupils for their hard work, saying: “My colleagues and our students can take pride in their achievements and I have no doubt the latter will go on, like their predecessors, to continuing success at university and beyond.”

He added this year’s results are the third best in the school’s history.
