Latest A-level Results

More excellent A-level Results

Headteacher, Barry Doherty, writes…

“We are again very proud of the achievements and results of our students following the release of this year’s A-level results.

The Governing Body and I are proud to be associated with such hardworking students whose families continue to play a very significant role in helping us secure individual and school success. We also wish to pay tribute to our teaching and associate staff who have again given everything for the students in this community.

Head of Sixth Form, Lisa De Bruyn,

“The main emotion felt by me and the Sixth Form Team is an intense pride for individual students who have faced and now overcome the full range of challenges in the past two years. We are so proud of them each one of them and hope they shall never forget what they have also learned about themselves and their potential to overcome adversity in our time together at Chipping Norton School.

Academically and pastorally, they are all now ready to study at university, commence higher apprenticeships or enter the world of work. It is a strange thing to remember that students who were here with us just a few weeks ago are about to set off to destinations that include Durham Manchester, Bristol, London and Warwick to study the full range of subjects, for example architecture, neuroscience, mathematics, physics, biochemistry, engineering, sociology, psychology, English and history. We wish them all luck and happiness.”

“It has been an exciting morning talking to our students about their next steps and celebrating the university and apprenticeships places that have been confirmed. I am delighted that so many students will be studying at Russell Group universities. I wish the students that have chosen to take a gap year or enter into employment the best of luck. I am confident that the strong grades they have achieved will stand them in good stead for their chosen pathways. It has been a particularly challenging time for this cohort, with the new specifications and move to linear A levels and I am incredibly proud of them all. I wish the year 13 every success, as they pursue their post 18 aspirations and I look forward to following their progress as they begin the next phase of their lives”.

Lucas, Joe, Beatrice, Sasha, Oliver and Rowan can be particularly thrilled by securing at least three A*/A grades each this summer.

Our success and expertise is not confined to one or two subjects and we remain a school sixth form that is the ideal destination for students of all interests; whether they lie in the STEM subjects, the Arts or the Humanities.

  • A* / A grade performance was particularly high in Mathematics (52%), Further Mathematics (60%), English Language and Literature (57%) and Dance (100%) with approximately one-third of all grades at this very high level in Geography, Philosophy & Ethics and Sociology.
  • A* / B grades represented over half of all grades this year but was particularly high in Art (64%), Biology (50%), Computer Science (80%), English Literature (60%) and Physics (57%).

These superb results come on the back of recent and exciting news that we can now share: At the start of the summer holidays we received confirmation of funding to secure a major and immediate investment on our site to establish a larger sixth form centre with modern and unparalleled facilities for all students. We anticipate all building work to be completed in time for the Sixth Form Open Evening on Thursday 7 November 2019 from between 5:00pm and 8:00pm.”
