Perse students celebrate after 83 per cent posted A* and A grade returns

The Perse in Cambridge is celebrating after students posted some of the best A level results of any school in the country.

A total of 83 per cent of entries were awarded an A* or A grade (or the Pre U equivalent).

With nearly half of all Perse A level results being graded an A* (47 per cent), students in the Upper Sixth are looking forward to fulfilling their ambitions.

In total, 175 students secured 553 A level or Pre U exam passes.

• 118 students (67% of the year group) achieved 3 or more A* / A grades, and 94% of the Upper Sixth achieved at least one A* / A grade.

• More than 60% of Perse students achieved an A* in English Literature, Further Maths, History, Music, Physics, Psychology and Spanish. (In 2018 the national A* average for all subjects was 8%).

• 99% of entries were graded A*- C and 100% of entries were graded A*-E.

Delighted head Ed Elliott, said: “The Upper Sixth have worked really hard and are to be congratulated on their outstanding academic results. I am thrilled to see so many students securing top grades and progressing to their first choice universities. These achievements are the culmination of their considerable personal development and extra-curricular success at The Perse.

“I congratulate all the Upper Sixth on their excellent endeavours, and thank the staff for their dedicated teaching and pastoral support which in turn, has helped students realise their potential.”
