A LEVEL RESULTS 2019

Bishop Stopford School has once again seen many happy students receiving results which mean that they have been able to secure the next stage at university or in employment.

Initial analysis indicates that half of grades awarded this year were at A*-B, and 18 students achieved at least 3 A* or A grades in their results. Congratulations go to Max Gault, who achieved 3 A* in his A Levels, and  twins Josh and Matthew Hutchinson who achieved 4A* and two A grades between them. Josh will go on to study Maths at Cambridge and Matthew Physics at Bath.  

Particularly pleasing this year were the outstanding results in courses taken for the first time.  In new vocational courses, over 50% of students achieved grades equivalent to A and A*, and in the Extended Project Qualification – highly sought after by universities - results were exceptional, with 90% of grades awarded at A* and A.

Headteacher Jill Silverthorne said, “The results this year are testament to the commitment and hard work of our 189 students who sat very challenging exams in May and June. What is particularly pleasing is that students of all abilities have made very good progress, including those from disadvantaged backgrounds. We are proud to celebrate each individual achievement and wish all of our students the very best. We look forward to following their successes as they build upon the strong academic foundations which our school has given them.”
