Celebrating A Level Achievements
At St John’s School, Leatherhead, pupils, parents and staff are celebrating another year of strong A level results and exceptional personal achievements in 2019. Almost half of grades achieved were A*/A grades, with well over a quarter of pupils receiving straight A*/A grades (an impressive increase from 2018). Four out of five grades were A*-B and the pass rate was 100%.
Economics, English, geography, history and psychology remain popular degree courses for our leavers. Pupils are also taking up places on a diverse range of courses including languages, mechanical engineering, criminology, medicine, dentistry and film and television. Furthermore, this cohort achieved the highest number of Oxbridge and Ivy League places in recent years.
Rowena Cole, The Head of St John’s, commented: “When public exam results are published, it is all too easy for individual success stories to be lost amongst the percentages and statistics. When I look at our departing Upper Sixth and reflect on their grades, they should feel pride both collectively and individually in their strong results. St John’s has always believed in the value of a rich educational experience; our Upper Sixth leavers gained a great deal from being part of this community and they contributed enormously to every facet of school life. I congratulate them all and wish them every success for their exciting futures.”
