A Level students at St Benedict’s School, Ealing are celebrating outstanding results: 61.3% of all the exams taken have been graded A*/A.
This is the highest proportion of top grades ever achieved at the school in a year when examinations were taken.
Nine students have achieved straight A* grades in at least 3 subjects and a further 24 students achieved straight A*/A in all subjects.
All five of the candidates with conditional offers from Oxford University have had their places confirmed and the majority of St Benedict’s students will now be heading off to a top 30 UK university, many to their first-choice institution.
Headmaster Andrew Johnson said: "It has been another really challenging year for examination candidates.
"I am hugely proud that St Benedict’s A Level students have worked so hard and have achieved such outstanding results across the whole range of subjects.
"They could not have achieved all this without the dedicated and excellent support of their teachers.
"These results continue the very strong upward trend in public exam results at St Benedict’s, and they are the best ever achieved in a year when examinations were taken under normal conditions."
Results were strong across all subjects and were particularly impressive this year in History (87.5% A*/A), Art and Design (85.7% A*/A), English, Further Maths and Drama (all 83.3% A*/A).
