A LEVEL students and staff at Saffron Walden County High School celebrated an excellent set of A Level examination results.

The 2013 results more than maintained the very high standards that have been achieved at Advanced Level at SWCHS over the last decade.

There were a considerable number of outstanding individual performances with 36 students achieving at least three A or A* grades. Amongst this group Sarah Cattley, Ally Dunham, Emily Flicos, Ed Goldsmith, Nat Levine, Emma Molloy, Tristram Walsh, Sam Whittome, and Ryan Woodcock all achieved three A*s or better.

On the basis of their A Level results, virtually all the students will be going on to their first choice university. These include a record breaking 12 students who have gained a place at either Oxford or Cambridge. In addition. Alice Jenkins, Jessica Juhl, Clare Tomlinson, and Elvina Ward have been accepted for entrance to a range of medical schools.

Overall when A2 and Applied A level results are combined, 37 per cent of all grades were at either A* or A with 92pc in the range A*-C.

Headteacher John Hartley was delighted with the results.

“These outstanding results have been achieved through a combination of an immense amount of hard work by the students, consistently very high quality teaching and a system of personalised tutorial support focused on maximising the achievement of each individual,” he said.
