Upper Sixth students at St Edward’s Senior & Sixth Form were celebrating their A Level results today, with 22% of all results at grades A* or A, and almost half of results at grades A*- B.

St Edward’s students have successfully gained places at some of the country’s most sought after universities including the University of Bristol, University of York, University of Warwick, University of Southampton, University of Exeter and Loughborough University. They will be studying a diverse range of courses such as Zoology, Music, Neuroscience, Archaeology, Biology and Forensic Science, Mathematics, Geography, Aeronautical Engineering, Linguistics, Sociology, Computer Science, Business and Electronic Engineering.

Headmistress, Mrs Pat Clayfield said, “Despite the challenging new A Level exam papers, I am delighted for our students who have demonstrated that through hard work and commitment it is possible to achieve their goals. At St Edward’s we are proud of the fact that the academic education we provide in our Sixth Form, supported by an inspiring programme of enrichment activities, enables our students to go on to study a huge variety of courses at a range of top universities and colleges all over the country. It has been wonderful to have the opportunity to celebrate with our students and their families today and I wish them all every success in the next stage of their education.”
