Blenheim High School students celebrate A level results
Students at Blenheim High School have achieved fantastic results in spite of the warning this morning from the Education Secretary that top grades have fallen to pre-pandemic levels. Blenheim students have attained excellent results with 21% of students attaining an A*-A, 51% an A*-B and 78% an A*-C with all being considerably higher than pre-pandemic levels.
Amongst the successes are Isabel who achieved 3 A* and is off to study Physics at Oxford, Molly who achieved 3 As and is going to study Geography at Durham and Calla and Laura who achieved identical results with an A* in Maths and an A in Biology and Chemistry. Calla is going to study Primary Education at Durham and Laura will study Maths at Bristol. Congratulations to our other top performers Daniel Perran, Rachel Jones, Christopher Evans, Aoife Linighan and Amelia Kyriakides.
Students are moving on to study a wide variety of subjects at University. Abigail Bunton has chosen Midwifery at Kingston University, Frankie Chamberlain will study Law at Royal Hollaway, Emma Grealish will go to University of the Creative Arts to study Fashion Business & Management, Aoife Linighan will go to Leeds to study Medicine, Daniel Perran is off to Warwick to study Mechanical Engineering and Rachel Jones will study Maths at York. Well done to James who will study Politics and International Relations at Nottingham, Quentin who will study Politics at the University of Sussex, Krishan who hopes to do an apprenticeship in Digital Marketing and Sam who is going to study English at St Mary’s.
Tony Bodell, Headteacher at Blenheim High School says “This year’s A level results are excellent and a significant improvement on 2019; the last year that summer exams were taken before the pandemic. Both staff and students deserve great credit for their work over many years. As usual, Blenheim students will now progress onto a variety of higher education and employment establishments. We wish them well for the future and thank parents/carers for their support.”
