Staff and students at Salesian School in Chertsey are celebrating record A Level results today. 72% of scores reported were A*, A or B grades or equivalent (including 34% A and A*) and the pass rate was 100%.
Students are now eagerly taking up their places at University and College, including two taking up courses in Medicine and Veterinary Science.
20 students earned 3 A grades or better (many of whom are pictured, right). Particular congratulations are due to Ben Duhig, whose A*A*AA grades earned him a place at Durham to read Theoretical Physics, and Jose Garcia Vizuete, who scored the same grades as Ben and is heading for Leeds to read Economics. Molly O'Neill's three A* grades mean she's going to Birmingham to study Medicine, while Morgan O'Donovan will study Veterinary Medicine at Nottingham thanks to her three straight A grades.
Mr Kibble said: "These are fantastic results and we are understandably proud of our students and their teachers. These figures prove how much effort our students put in, and how hard our teachers work to build outstanding working relationships with every single student, and teach them so well. It's no wonder we have so many smiling faces today: 72% A*-B grades, 91% A*-C demonstrate yet again the quality of teaching and learning at Salesian School."
Head of Sixth Form, Miss Elizabeth Ingram, said: "I am thrilled by this year's results: they show that our students are working harder than ever and they are rightly reaping the rewards. It's really special to see so many happy students today, excited about their plans for the future. As always, the vast majority are going on to university and college courses or apprenticeships, and we're especially pleased for the six students who earned two or more A* grades."
