QEGS celebrates excellent A-level results

18th August 2022

Queen Elizabeth Grammar School has today received an excellent and well-deserved set of A-level results. The impressive results are a fitting culmination to the 2022 leavers’ time at QEGS.

Head Boy Edward will be heading off to Cambridge University to study History, having gained 3 A* grades in English Language, Politics and History; he also attained A* in his EPQ.

Having spent the past two years balancing his studies with volunteering on the wards at Pinderfield Hospital during the height of the pandemic, Andrew secured 3 A*s in his A Levels, and an A* in his EPQ and he leaves QEGS to study medicine at Leeds University.  

Yorkshire Academy Cricketer and Deputy Head Boy George will be heading to Loughborough University to study Financial Mathematics, having gained A*A* A in Maths, French and Chemistry.

Youngest of three brothers to have attended the school, Max started in the Pre-Prep Department aged 3 and now departs with 3 A* grades in Economics, Geography and Spanish, and a place to study Law at the University of Manchester.

Savile Scholar and County hockey player William is delighted with his A*s in Geography and Politics, and an A in Economics with an A in his EPQ means he will start at Loughborough University in the Autumn studying Finance and Management.

One of four brothers to attend QEGS, Matthew gained 3 A* grades in Biology, Chemistry and Maths and will seek to apply for a university place after his Gap Year.

Head of Savile House and First XV Rugby Captain Toby will study Engineering at Durham University, having gained A* grades in Maths, Physics and DT.

Keen Biologist Dami followed his earlier success of a coveted Gold in the British Biology Olympiad by gaining a place to study Medicine and Surgery at Newcastle University with his A*A*A in Biology, Chemistry and Physics.

Overall, 29% of boys achieved the top A* and A grades in three or more subjects. The vast majority of boys will go on to study at their first-choice university, attaining places on the most prestigious courses, including Medicine, Law, Architecture, English Literature, Mathematics, Geography, Engineering, History, Politics, Economics, Astrophysics, Rural Enterprise & Land Management, and Business Management. We also have boys beginning apprenticeships in the Financial and Nuclear Energy sectors, following rigorous and highly competitive selection processes.

Dr Richard Brookes, Head, said: “Well done to all our boys on an excellent set of A-level results. These boys have been through a challenging period of uncertainty over the last three years, and have shown tremendous dedication and resilience in the face of that challenge. I am proud of the care they have shown towards each other, the contribution they have made to all areas of school life, and their academic aspiration which is being rewarded today. I congratulate them, and I look forward to staying in touch with them as they join our alumni community. I would also like to thank the QEGS staff for all that they have done to support these boys, and all the boys in the school.”
