After a return to the reality of public exams The Oratory has once again celebrated the success of its A Level pupils who have attained highly in spite of the challenges faced during their two year courses.
Grades have again risen beyond national averages with A*-A at 39%, A*-B at 66% and A*-C at 87%, and A*-E at 100%; the majority of pupils have again gained entry to their first choice universities.
The Head Master, Joe Smith said: "I want to pay tribute to the Oratory leavers of 2022, our first coeducational group of pupils to take their A levels.
"They have had a very challenging few years, with huge disruption to their learning, and, as with all their peers in other schools across the country, these exams where the first public exams they took, so they therefore deserve credit for the way in which they faced the unknown this year.
"They have worked hard and been a wonderful group of pupils in their wholehearted approach to school life; quite apart from the many academic successes they have achieved today, they have developed in many less quantifiable but arguably more profound ways, and we wish them every success and happiness as they move on to the next stage of their lives."
He continued: "I’d also like to pay tribute to their teachers, and all the members of Oratory staff who have helped our leavers along their journey in so many ways.
"I know that the young people appreciate the commitment, support and expertise of the staff as much as I do."
