Nottingham High School is today celebrating a stunning set of A Level Results with 64% of all passes at the highest A* and A grades.
A quite remarkable 52 students have gained 3 A grades or better. 28% of all passes were at the top grade of A* – matching last year’s record figure. These results are expected to show that the School has again gained some of the highest results in the East Midlands.
With a 100% pass rate, this year’s cohort has excelled: 97.3% of passes were at C or above, 88.5% at B or above. 15 students gained at least 3 A* grades and four gained at least four A* grades.
- 64% of all passes were at A* or A grade
- 28.% grades gained were at A*.
- 88.5% of the grades achieved are A*, A or B.
- 52 students gained 3 grade As or better. Of those, 15 students got at least 3 A*s, and 4 students achieved at least 4 A*s.
Kevin Fear, Headmaster of Nottingham High School, says: “We are simply thrilled with these outstanding results which demonstrate both that our teachers inspire but also that our students have responded magnificently to the challenges of the new-style A Level exams. A remarkable 52 students gained at least 3 A grades. For almost two thirds of all of our passes again this year to be at A* or A grade is brilliant.”
A total of 11 students have secured places at Oxford or Cambridge Universities and at least 15 have prestigious places to study Medicine, with others still waiting on final decisions from their chosen university. The vast majority of our students have gained their first choice of university places.
“We are delighted with this superb set of results which again show the value of our move to co-education in recent years,” Kevin Fear says. “There are so many highlights for our students, their families and our teachers to celebrate. This year group has also contributed so much more outside of the classroom, so they leave us not only with brilliant qualifications but also as really impressive, quietly confident young people ready to move on to their further education.”
