A-Level Results have arrived!

Pupils at St Edmund’s School, Canterbury are today celebrating an impressive set of A-Level results. Exam boards have made it clear that this year grading standards have returned to pre-pandemic levels. Results for 2023 are therefore expected to be comparable with those of 2019, with some minor adjustments made to protect pupils from the disruption they have experienced.

We are pleased to report that the overall pass rate this year was 99% (2019 = 98%, 2022 = 99%).  The percentage of A* and A grades was 26% (2019 = 27%).

The number of A*-B grades was 53% (2019 = 56%).

Most importantly, our students now go on to the next stage of their academic careers at leading institutions. Today our departing Upper Sixth have confirmed places at a range of Russell Group and other elite universities including Imperial College London, King’s College London, Exeter, Bath, Warwick, York, Royal Holloway and Sheffield among others.

Our Head, Mr Edward O’Connor said:

“I am immensely proud of this cohort of St Edmund’s students. Despite the pandemic disruption to their GCSEs and the necessary national adjustment in grading standards this year, they have gone on to achieve an outstanding set of results. They now progress to an selection of excellent universities with the academic grades and personal qualities to forge successful future careers as motivated, socially responsible individuals.  As always, my thanks go to our wonderful teaching staff who continue to inspire and support our pupils and to Mr Symaka and his Sixth Form team for the invaluable advice they provide during the UCAS process.”
