Not only is the school celebrating a 98% pass rate, but a remarkable 16 boys have achieved the highest grades possible with A* and A grades in 3 or more subjects.
Queen Elizabeth Grammar School is incredibly proud of all its students, and there were some outstanding personal performances from Lewis Jones and Joseph Basford, who both achieved 3 A*s and 1 A grade. The boys will go on to study Maths and Economics respectively at the University of Warwick.
Other A* students included Joshua Hattersley and Gianni Tam-McMillan. Joshua achieved a remarkable 3 A*s and 1 A grade and will study Biochemistry at the University of York. Gianni achieved an astounding 5 A Levels, with 4 A*s and 1 A grade, an accomplishment that will see him go on to study Medicine at the University of Oxford.
Headteacher David Craig said he was really pleased with the results, which he put down to the hard work of the school’s staff and students:
“You couldn’t hope to work with 100 or so such great lads. Watching them come through the school has been a real pleasure – all of the music, top level sport and great camaraderie – friendships which will last for life. I’m really pleased that they’ve done so well in their A Levels. The great majority of them are now set fair for exciting university courses around the country. We wish them all well and will miss them!”
