Blenheim High School is today celebrating their best A level results for 7 years with 21% of students gaining an A* or A, 51% achieving an A*to B, 81% achieving an A* to C and almost 100% of students passing their exams with an A to E result. Students and teachers alike are delighted.

We have three students heading off to study at Durham after their excellent results - Ellie Ames who achieved 3 As and will study English Literature, Harvey Lamb who gained an A* in both Maths and Further Maths, along with an A in Physics and B in Drama and will go on to study Maths and Omar El-Dahshan who got an A*, 2 As and a B and will be studying Chemistry at Durham.

Tony Bodell, Headteacher at Blenheim High School says “This year’s A level results are outstanding and a credit to the students and staff here who have worked tirelessly over many years. Our Sixth Form’s strong report during our Ofsted Inspection has been reflected in the achievements of our students here today and we are delighted to have achieved our best set of results for 7 years. We are very proud to see our students going on to such a variety of further studies and careers which is a credit to the 6th Form team and Careers Advisor and most importantly the students themselves. I’d like to say a huge well done to all our Sixth Form students and staff.”
