A-levels: Very best results for Bourne Grammar School
Bourne Grammar School is today (Thursday) celebrating fabulous A-level results.
Headteacher Jonathan Maddox said: "It is well-known that the academic rigour of A-Level is increasing but that could not be guessed from our students’ grades. Their results were absolutely outstanding and without doubt amongst the very best that students from Bourne Grammar have ever achieved."
Reflecting the school’s recent expansion, this A-Level cohort was a large one of 145 students. The students sat 445 A-level examinations, achieving an impressive pass rate of 99.8 per cent. There were 165 grades at grade A or better. The highest grade, designed to recognise and reward the most exceptional examination performances, is the A* grade and an impressive 55 A* grades were achieved by our students. They achieved 110 A grades.
There were 36 students who achieved at least three A grades. Five students achieved at least three A* grades and 17 achieved at least 2 A* grades.
Overall, two-thirds of the students’ A-Level grades were grade B or better and 86 per cent were grade C or better.
Deputy head boy Adam Hawkins, from Baston, achieved three A* grades and one A grade. Adam will proceed to Oxford in October to read chemistry. Andrew Martin from Rippingale achieved three A* grades and also moves on to Oxford, to study physics. Wiktoria Obarska and Harriet Price, both from Bourne, each achieved three A* grades as did Chloe Patman from Baston. Rufus King from Peterborough achieved A*A*AB and proceeds to Cambridge to read economics and Frankie Gardner from Bourne, with A*A*A, will continue her studies in English language and literature at Oxford.
