We are celebrating another successful year as our Upper Sixth students receive an excellent set of A Level grades, despite the government insisting examinations have become significantly harder.
Pupils’ hard work paid off as they achieved a super pass rate of 98%. An impressive 47% of exams were graded at A* to B, with 77% graded at C or above.
Star performers include Neil Srivastava who achieved a superb set of 2A*s in Mathematics and Biology, and 2As in Chemistry and French, and will study Medicine at Sheffield University. Oliver Cox achieved A*A*A and has won a place at Warwick University to study Politics. Twins Adam and Liam Senior were thrilled with their A*AB and AAB, as was the Chair of the School Council, Thomas Neale, who gained 4 A grades.
Head Girl, Annie Barrass achieved ABB and has won a place at the University of Liverpool, while Star Fly Half, Sam Brooke, who made his debut for Doncaster Knights last week against Newcastle Falcons, worked hard to gain 3 A levels at CCD alongside his burgeoning rugby career.
Headmaster David Holland was delighted with the successes, saying ‘this reflects a lot of hard work and talent from both students and teachers. We are especially pleased that results are improving as national expectations suggest a reduction in grades, and that the great majority of our Upper Sixth are going to top universities on competitive courses.’
Congratulations to you all, Upper Sixth, we are extremely proud of you and wish you all the best for the future!
