We are delighted to announce record breaking A Level results for our Year 13 students today (national figures for all schools in England, including grammar schools, in brackets for comparison purposes): 67% A*-B (national 52.7%), 93% A*-C (national 76.8%) and over 30% of all grades were A*/A (national 26.2%). As well as our A Level results, the school was delighted with the performance of our students undertaking Level 3 BTECs with 71% of all grades awarded at Distinction* and 29% of grades at Distinction.

The results achieved by our students in 2018 are the best set of A Level results in the school’s history and cements our reputation as one of the highest performing state schools in Essex. These results follow on from a number of years of high achievement in our Sixth Form. The performance of the students this year has been nothing less than outstanding and the school is exceptionally proud of every student and their achievements.

Particularly outstanding results were achieved by:

Michael Bottomley: A* grades in Further Mathematics, Mathematics, Chemistry, Physics and Computer Science

Paige Stedman: A* grades in Art and Design and Photography and A grades in Law and the Extended Project Qualification

Harriet Ratty: A* grades in Media Studies and Psychology and a B grade in Religious Studies

Madeleine Baker: A* grades in Physical Education and the Extended Project Qualification, a B grade in English Literature and a C grade in French

Daniel Spurgeon: A* grade in Mathematics, A grades in Further Mathematics, Biology, Chemistry and Physics

Cameron Gilmour: A* grade in Mathematics, A grades in Further Mathematics, Chemistry and Physics

Ellen Morley: A* grade in the Extended Project Qualification and A grades in Biology, Geography and Psychology

Nixie Tucker: A* grade in the Extended Project Qualification, A grades in History, Law and Spanish and Distinction in Performing Arts



The overwhelming majority of our students have achieved the grades to take up places at top universities to study a range of courses. A number of our students are also taking up prestigious courses at Higher Education institutions across the country.

These results reflect the excellent effort of our students, the expertise and dedicated support from their teachers and the support from our parents. Our students have responded well to the excellent support and encouragement provided by their teachers, have worked tremendously hard and have been justly rewarded with outstanding results at A Level. What is equally impressive is that these results have been achieved at a time when new A Level qualifications are significantly more challenging.

Very well done everyone!
