Today, our A level students joined their International Baccalaureate peers in celebrating their results.
Despite many changes in the way in which A levels are now organised, Anglo students achieved their customary excellent results – well done! Mrs Gee and Mr Barrs were present to share in the successes and learn about their next steps. 79% of our students have secured their first choice of university, including almost a third of our Sixth Form progressing to ‘higher tariff’ (Russell Group) universities, which is an outstanding achievement. We also know that, as we write, a number of near-miss students are having very constructive conversations with their preferred universities and the unique Anglo experience, which is broad and outward looking, is a common point of reference in those conversations. Indeed, during this summer holiday alone we have had 16 students in Lesotho working in the our partner community in Malalea as well as 15 students in Nicaragua on a World Challenge expedition. The breadth of the curriculum is further demonstrated with Anglo students achieving success in 8 different languages this year as well as over 60% of students studying Mathematics and Sciences.
As one would expect at the Anglo, many are also heading for universities abroad including Denmark and Spain. A variety of degree subjects are being pursued ranging from Law and Medicine to Automotive Engineering, International Relations and Languages.
Director of Sixth for and Assistant Headteacher, Stuart Newton, said “As in keeping with the unique set of programmes that we offer at AES, I am particularly pleased with the acceptance rate from universities who appreciate the full range of courses that we offer at all levels and the wide range of experiences our students can evidence that make them stand out from the crowd both in the UK and overseas. ”.
IB Diploma students averaged 33 out of a maximum 45 points against a world average of 30. One student, achieved the full 45 points, placing her in the top 1% of over 150,000 students who sat the examination worldwide. Students following the IB Career Programme study some A levels and all passed. At A level a third of our students secured grades at A*-B and 97% secured grades at A*-E. Overall of all the qualifications sat, almost one in 5 of the grades awarded were A*/A and over 45% were awarded at A*-B.
These results come about from the hard work of students , staff and parents. Thank you and congratulations to you all.
