Pupils achieve the second highest percentage of A* grades in the School’s history
A noteworthy 28% of the A Level grades achieved by St Albans School Sixth Formers this year are A* grades: this is the second highest total in the School’s history. Seventeen pupils achieved at least 3 A*s.
35 candidates (almost a quarter of our entry) gained at least 2 A*s and 80 pupils (more than 50% of our entry) gained at least 1A*.
Furthermore, 89% of grades awarded were A*-B grades, a widely-recognised measure of A Level success. This year, A* and A grades account for two thirds of all grades.
Jonathan Gillespie, Headmaster of St Albans School, commented: “This year’s outstanding A Level results, the majority of which have been achieved in the more demanding new A Level specifications, once again reflect the strong commitment and dedication shown by our Sixth Formers and our teaching staff. I congratulate all our leavers and wish them every success in the future.”
