Cheney’s school community is celebrating strong A-Level results today having worked particularly hard in a year of significant national change. Rupert Moreton, Head of School, said: “Despite the government’s drive to ‘toughen up’ A-Level grade boundaries, we are pleased to see that a higher percentage of our students have received grades A* – B this year compared to last year. This is a testament to the hard work and commitment of our students and teachers alike. We will continue to strive to ensure all of our Sixth Form students achieve their full potential, especially those who face additional challenges.”
Jolie Kirby, Head of Community Schools Alliance Trust said: “It was a privilege to spend the morning with students and staff celebrating the A-level results. What a joy it was seeing so many happy faces, our students and staff have worked hard to secure these results, and there are many stories of individual inspiration. It was very special indeed to share the very special moment when Said Elehami opened his results with his mum. Look out for his story in the Oxford Mail”.
We are particularly pleased with the performance of students in English Literature, History, Geography, French, Biology and Further Mathematics. A large number of students in each of these subjects received an A*/A grade. There were also noticeable successes in many other subjects.
Overall, our students sat 276 exams over the exam season: 24% achieved A*-A grades, 45% achieved A*-B grades and 95% achieved A*-E grades.
Some of the results we would like to highlight this year are:
Lara Gracie who achieved an amazing 4 A*’s – she will be going to study medicine at Birmingham.
Inez Plugge Porter who got 3 A*’s and an A and will likely be taking her place to study Geography at Cambridge.
Hannah Wade who got 2 A*’s and an A and will go to Oxford to study Human Sciences.
Peter Vickers who got 2 A*’s and an A and is going to take a well-earned gap year.
William Woodruffe Peacock who got 2 A*’s and 2 A’s and will be taking his place at Bristol to study Computer Science.
We would also like to mention the following students who have achieved some incredible results despite facing some additional challenges throughout their time in Sixth Form:
