A Level results 2019
A Level pupils at the College have again returned a pleasing set of results.
A third of all grades were scored either A* or A; almost 70% were within the range A*- B. In total, a quarter of this cohort achieved AAB or better, which is an excellent achievement in light of the recent qualification reforms and a drop in the number of top grades nationally.
There were some outstanding individual performances too, most notably from Hamish Newall who achieved A*A*A*A in Maths, Further Maths, Physics and Computer Science respectively, and from Emma Warley who secured a clean sweep of top grades in Art, English Literature and Religious Studies.
We are delighted to report that the vast majority of pupils have made it into their first choice university. Once again, a number of Bradfieldians are headed overseas to continue their studies having taken up offers in North America (including Georgetown and NYU Tisch) and mainland Europe. Alex Wilson is set to join the Royal Marines while others will be excited to be moving directly into the world of employment.
For a group of pupils with such a rich and diverse range of abilities and interests we are pleased that so many have found success. Many have excelled at the highest level whilst others have had to work hard to meet university offers. Recently reformed A Levels continue to present a particularly rigorous challenge and so once more I am grateful for the support provided by the College’s dedicated team of teachers and tutors.
