A Level Results 2018/2019
Edgbarrow Sixth Form would like to congratulate all those students, families and staff members who worked very hard to achieve some lovely grades this year. We are delighted with many excellent achievements. Top performer Anna Witchell gained A*A*A*A and is going to study Politics, Philosophy and Economics at the University of Warwick. Other top-performing students include Sophie Ryder, Natalie Mulliner, Sarah Wilson, Toby Wenman, Antony Kourkoulos, Vivienne Gardner-McTaggart and Emily Birch. Sophie Ryder gained her three A grades despite being extremely ill during her exams – miraculous! Milly Del-Nevo will be moving on to the Royal Veterinary College, which is a huge achievement!
Dan Hallissey and Alex Le Grand led the charge in our vocational subjects with grades of D*D* and an A at A Level for Dan and D*D*D* for Alex, who also gained further qualifications and even lectured on a degree course while he was studying with us! 60 students gained at least one A or A* grade or equivalent.
We are delighted that students are going off to really good universities, including the London School of Economics, Durham, York, Bristol, Birmingham, Warwick, Southampton, Nottingham, Sheffield, Surrey and Royal Holloway. In total, over 100 Edgbarrow students will go off to university this year and we hope they have a fantastic time! Furthermore, some of our students have obtained excellent non-university opportunities. Danielle Colville will be starting the new Police apprenticeship and Stacey Picker will begin an exciting apprenticeship with Broadmoor Hospital. Many other students will be starting apprenticeships or moving straight into full-time employment, where we are sure they will do really well.
In 9 A-Level subjects, all students achieved A*-C grades. In a further 7 subjects, 80% of all grades were between A* and C. In 8 subjects, more than 60% of grades were A*- B.

All music students gained a Distinction*. All health and social care students gained at least a Merit (single qualification) or Distinction-Merit (double qualification). Finally, 70% of sport and exercise science students gained at least a double Distinction.
We wish all our students every success and a lot of happiness in the future.
