Year 13 students collect their A-Level results
The Howard School Year 13 cohort collected their results this morning amidst an atmosphere of uncertainty, excitement and celebration. This is the first year of ‘normal’ examinations following the pandemic and for students, the first time many of them had sat a formal public examination.
The Howard School has proudly maintained its high standards, with students delivering consistently excellent academic and applied results again this year. The overall grade across all subjects at A Level and Applied General was a C grade, which improves upon 2019 performance, the last time students sat formal examinations.
The average academic grade stands at grade C. Grades achieved in applied general subjects were very strong with students achieving multiple Distinctions and Merits from the new tougher examined courses. The average applied grade is Merit +. Early indications are that virtually all students have secured the grades necessary to access their chosen university courses, higher apprenticeships and employment routes.
We have seen some outstanding individual performances. Bradley Rodgers - English Language A*, Sport D*D*, Dylan Carter Business A, Geography A*, Finance A, Mathematics A and Morgan Gilman – English Language & Literature A, History A, Law D*.
Other notable performances included Harry Nichols, Thomas Wright, Benjamin Philips, Tom Silvester, Megan Smith, Michael Allsopp, Archie Doran, Jack Fray and Rafe Baker who all achieved the top grades of A*/B in three subjects.
We are delighted that the hard work of students and their teachers has paid off and that the school is able to celebrate their success. We would like to thank all members of the school community including parents and carers in supporting students in overcoming the difficulties presented by the pandemic and producing very successful exam outcomes.
