A-level results 2020: Oundle School
The headteacher of Oundle School said this year's group of A-level pupils deserved recognition "more than any".
Sarah Kerr-Dineen said that while results nationwide this year have been subject to more scrutiny and contention than ever, Oundle School was pleased that exam boards "have affirmed our faith in our pupils".
Mrs Kerr-Dineen added: “This group of pupils more than any deserved to have their hard work and abilities recognised fairly after a term of disruption and disappointment that was not of their making. I congratulate them all.”
Twenty-two per cent of grades awarded were at A* or equivalent, with 53 per cent A*/A and 81 per cent A*to B.
Out of the 22 Cambridge and Oxford candidates, 20 had secured their places by 10am on the morning of results being released.
The majority of pupils were able to confirm their places at their firm or insurance-choice universities.
