Mount Grace School in Potters Bar is celebrating a record-breaking set of A-level results.
This year’s cohort selected a greater proportion of A-levels to vocational level 3 courses than usual, and this was the first year of the more rigorous A-level examinations.
In spite of the greater pressure on students, they still managed to improve on results from previous years with 30 per cent of all entries being graded A* - A, 62 per cent graded A* – B, and 80 per cent graded A* – C.
The results enabled students to access a wide range of higher education courses and advanced apprenticeships, including 11 students earning places at prestigious Russell Group universities.
Headteacher Peter Baker said: “These excellent results reflect students’ high attainment at GCSE two years ago and I am really pleased with them.
“They have worked very hard on these new, more demanding courses and remained focused throughout the last two years.
“With so much at stake on a narrow window of examinations, concentrated in two to three weeks in June, I am pleased that their calm and mature approach has been so richly rewarded.
“All of us at Mount Grace are sure they will flourish and build on their sixth form successes.”
