A-level results 2021: Oundle Schools welcomes results as all Oxbridge candidates offered place at chosen university
Oundle School has welcomed the results of its A-level cohort.
The 2021 leavers are finally able to celebrate after eighteen months of disruption and unprecedented changes both to their lives and their usual way of working and learning.
A-level pupils were awarded grades based on their demonstrated achievement in their chosen subjects, constituting many hours of work and preparation for questions and essays, coursework, in-school tests and mock exams.
Oundle’s grading policy, the grades themselves and the chosen evidence were scrutinised and approved by the examination boards, with no changes made to procedures or decisions.
35 per cent of grades awarded were at A* or equivalent, with 68 per cent A*A and 91 per cent A*to B.
A high proportion of pupils immediately secured a place at one of their chosen universities, with all Oxbridge candidates confirming their offered places on the day of results.
Topping the cohort were several outstanding performances, notably from Jack Campbell, head boy of the school, who secured three A* and two D1s - grades which identify the highest performers in Pre-U qualifications - and Brioni Leung, who achieved five A*s.
Sarah Kerr-Dineen, headteacher of Oundle School, said: “These fine results are richly deserved by a group of young people who have shown extraordinary determination and resilience throughout their sixth form years.
"We are immensely proud of them.”
