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.”
