A-Level results: Celebrations at Friends’ School Saffron Walden
FRIENDS’ School students are once again celebrating very pleasing A-Level results.
The overall pass rate was 98 per cent with 17 per cent of grades being at A* - double the national average.
Almost 30 per cent of the grades were at A* to A and an impressive 70 per cent A* to C.
Headmaster Graham Wigley said: “There has been a lot of press coverage nationally about the plight of this year’s cohort of A-Level students, with competition for university places hotter than ever so it’s very pleasing to see our sixth form leavers off to a really varied range degree courses, from London, Warwick and other top universities to Chelsea College of Art and the Royal Agricultural College.
“Results day is always a very special day as our students find out the fruits of their hard work.
