More than 75 per cent of students achieved grades A*-B, and an impressive 18 per cent of the grades received were A*.

The majority of young people at the school succeeded in securing the grades they needed to go on to their first choice of university, including departing senior prefects, Sophie C, who achieved AAA and Neil M, who was awarded A*A*A.

Sophie will go on to read medicine at the University of Sheffield and Neil heads to Imperial College, London to read material science and engineering.

Other top performing pupils included William B, John GI, Sienna H, Sicheng L, Jake

L and Kristy Y, all of whom obtained straight A* grades.

There was also praise for Jake L, John GI and Ruslan R, all of whom secured the grades they needed to take up their places at Oxford University.

Headmaster Martin Priestley said: “My warmest congratulations to the ‘Class of 2022’. As I said to them when we were last together on Speech Day at the very end of term, they responded magnificently to the impact of Covid on their learning and their school lives.

“Throughout it all, they proved themselves to be, as a year-group, quite magnificent: they displayed almost boundless resilience and alongside their success in their academic studies they achieved great things, both individually and collectively, outside the classroom – we couldn’t be prouder of them.

“Within the life of the school, they were extraordinarily cohesive as a year-group, they set a great example to younger Leysians and were exceptionally supportive of each other along the way. Whatever adversity life throws at them in the future, I know that they will be uniquely well placed to respond resiliently and successfully. My congratulations to them all.

“My thanks also to my colleagues, both teaching and support staff, each one of whom plays a role in facilitating and encouraging these successes; I am sure that all of them join me in congratulating the departing Upper Sixth of 2022.”
