A-Level Results Day 2019: The Leys full results
Sixth form students at The Leys are celebrating another excellent set of A-level results this year with a 100 per cent pass rate.
The results were collectively amongst the best in the school’s history. Some 80 per cent of all grades achieved were A* - B, with 93 per cent at A* - C and a very pleasing 52 per cent at A* or A.
Nearly one third of all candidates achieved three A grades or better, and half of the cohort achieved AAB or better.By each of these statistics, performance was up considerably on 2018 results.
Martin Priestley, Headmaster of The Leys, said: “These results are very strong indeed. They are considerably up on the results from 2018 and amongst the best the school has ever achieved. We are exceptionally proud of our sixth form pupils and their achievements both in the classroom and outside it.
“The school continues to be academically ambitious; year on year under the leadership of the Director of Studies and The Director of Teaching and Learning, we strive to develop and improve further.
“These results are just part of the wider picture which confirms that our pupils can now move onto the next stage of their lives as confident and successful young adults.
“Their hard work and dedication, along with that of their teachers and the wider Leysian community, has once again paid off and on behalf of all my colleagues and the governors, I would like to congratulate them all and wish them well in their next chapters.”
There were some excellent individual successes including:
Edward Gunn with 4 A*s. This confirms Edward’s place at Worcester College, Oxford to read Engineering.
Congratulations also to Laura Baker, Archibald Douglas, Riccardo Nori, Elizabeth Roberts and Jonathan Winfrey, each of whom achieved 3 A* grades.
The vast majority of pupils have gained places at their first choice of university. This year, six Leysians and recent Old Leysians secured offers from Oxford and Cambridge.
