Ringwood School is celebrating another year of exceptional A level results with its largest ever cohort.
Provisional results indicate that the year group achieved a 99.6% pass rate for A*- E grades in 34 subjects offered through A level and vocational courses. The percentage of grades awarded at A*-A has increased to 25% (+2% from 2015) with 53% of all grades awarded at A*- B (+3% from 2015) in line with the school’s best ever results. Students with at least 2 A levels or equivalent has risen to 97%.
The highest individual results were achieved by Hearst Lam – 3 A* grades and 1 A grade. Hearst is now going on to Cambridge University to study Mechanical Engineering.
3 or more A*- A grades were achieved by: Sophie Cundall, Sophie Beck, Robert Boulton, Mabel Collins, Olivia Cornwall, Robert Fisher, Max Grant-Walker, Declan Kirkwood, Rose Knight, Rosie Mabb, Toby Matthews and Joshua Perriman.
A 100% pass rate was achieved by students following vocational courses with an average grade of distinction*.
A very high percentage of university applicants have already secured places at their first choice institutions. Nearly all of the students who began a two year A level programme in 2014 completed their studies in 2016, demonstrating outstanding retention and success.
Chris Edwards, Ringwood School Headteacher commented: “The sixth form is continuing to grow strongly with more students studying A levels every year. My congratulations go to all the students who have worked so hard over the past two years to achieve these excellent results – I am incredibly proud of all of them. My thanks also go to the staff for their dedication and commitment in helping every student to achieve success and to our parents for their continuing support.”
