Onslow St Audrey’s School in Hatfield has seen a “huge increase” in higher grades at A-level and BTEC this year, with all the pupils going on to their chosen university places or career paths.
Top achievers include James Boyce, Cameron Oakaby-Wright, George Jones, Alicija Grzeskowiak, Chris Malpas, and Torrin Parratt, all of whom achieved all A*-C grades in their results.
James, who has secured a place at Salford University to study Film Studies with his A*, two Bs and a C, said: ”I am really pleased with my results – the hard work paid off and I’m going to study what I’ve always wanted to do.”
For George, it has been an inspiring journey to achieve his three distinctions.
He said: “Even though I didn’t have all the necessary grades to get into sixth form, because I was eager to learn, the head of sixth form supported my application.
