Amazing A Level Results
Students and staff at The Judd School are celebrating again following another marvellous set of results, maintaining and surpassing the standard expected of Judd students.
Four hundred A level results were graded A* or A, representing almost 2 in 3 of all grades and an increase on last year. Overall, 88% of grades were A* - B. This year also saw the continuation of the school’s commitment to offer a broad and challenging curriculum with almost half of all students achieving four passes, an increasingly rare site with schools under such financial pressure and students sitting a greater than ever number of exams with their associated pressure.
12 students achieved straight A*s (or equivalent): Ethan Arnold; Rose Blyth; George Coote; Luke Davies; Max De Bono; Ayush Gupta; Holly Hayward; Pippa Jackson; Milla Keith; Jessica Lally; Kartik Velayudham and Adam Winnifrith
Particular congratulations should go to Rose Blyth, who actually achieved five A*s in Maths and Further Maths, Physics, Chemistry and Music, together with outstanding STEP success, securing her place to read Maths at Cambridge. Praise too to Harry Mouat who achieved six A Levels, including four at A* grade, having taken part in a successful pilot group of students working together to study Computer Science without assistance.
Jon Wood, Headteacher, said:
“I am delighted that the hard work and determination of our students and staff have yet again delivered outstanding results. Truly deserved, these results will open doors to them for the rest of their lives. Students face a world changing at a rapid pace, but they have shown they are ready –intellectually and emotionally – to take those next steps with confidence. I wish the class of 2019 a fond farewell as they embark on their future lives."
The Judd School continues to offer an inspiring co-educational Sixth Form of exceptional performance, where engaged and interested students make the most of their opportunities, surrounded by like-minded, inquisitive people in a friendly environment.
