Outstanding A level results for our students

15th August 19

There were smiles all round at King Alfred School as the Y13 students picked up their A level results.  With over a third of all grades at A*-A, and 91% of the grades A* – C, they are now looking forward to their next step, with the majority of students securing places at their first choice universities. 

Robert Lobatto, Head of King Alfred School, said “A levels are not easy, and these results show that the focus and effort our students have put in has really paid off. Our small class sizes and the passion of our teachers have helped build a love of learning which has enabled these students to achieve to the best of their abilities. We’re proud of all our A level students and can’t wait to see what they do next.

New Head of Sixth Form, Takako celebrates with Billy H, his mum and dad. Billy achieved an A in Music and Maths and an A* in Politics. He is deliberating between offers from McGill University in Canada and UCL.

Our Year 13 students did very well across all subject areas. 100% of students who studied French, Spanish, Biology, German, History, Classical Civilisation, Film Studies, Music Technology, Computer Science, Geography, Photography, Drama and Music achieved grades A* – C.  Further Maths students also performed well with 83% achieving A* – C grades and in Economics, 92% of students achieved A* – C grades. A* grades were achieved by students across a variety of subjects: English Literature,  Economics, Drama, French, Maths, Music Technology, Politics, Art & Design and Photography, showing the huge range of talent at the School.

Opening the results envelopes is always an exciting moment. One student who was eager to find out how she’d done was Monica who is off to study Liberal Arts at Kings College London after securing an A*, A, A and B. “I would like to thank my teachers and The King Alfred School for pushing me when I needed motivation. I’m really looking forward to going to Uni. “

Monica K and George P are excited about their next steps as they head off to Kings College and Exeter Universities.

George, who has accepted a place to study Computer Science and Philosophy at Exeter, said “I’m very excited about my next step. I came to King Alfred from a school which was very different and I’ve thrived here where there is less pressure and more support.”

Ania Herbut, outgoing Head of Sixth Form said “The students should be very proud of these great exam results and everything else they’ve achieved during their time at King Alfred. With many students taking part in sports teams, school productions, charity work and academic trips alongside their studies, they are a really well rounded bunch whose confidence and abilities will carry them far. Well done!’.
