A-Level results are in!

Students at St Edmund’s School Canterbury are today celebrating an excellent set of A-Level examination results.

The overall A*- E pass rate was 99% with the number of A*- C grades at 86%.

66% of all grades achieved were A*- B.

17 Academic departments scored 100% success at gaining A*- C grades for their pupils.

60% of the Upper Sixth achieved at least one grade A* or A (or Distinction* for Cambridge Technical qualifications).

These results represent a significant increase on the school’s 2019 results – the last set of formal public examinations taken before COVID disruption.

Our students now go on to further study at leading UK universities such as King’s College London, Warwick, Exeter, Bath and Royal Holloway in addition to leading Drama Schools and Conservatoires for music.

Indeed, 75% of students today have confirmed places at their first choice universities.

Head, Edward O’Connor said:  “We are immensely proud of this talented and hard-working group of students.   Their impressive results not only reflect their academic ability and work ethic but also their resilience and focus through the disruption of the COVID pandemic and lockdown during their GCSE and A-Level studies.

I am also hugely grateful to our remarkable teachers who continue to inspire in the classroom and provide outstanding additional support in academic clinics and holiday revision groups.  We thank our pupils and their families for all they have done to support the school and wish them every success and happiness in their future endeavours”.
