Our students at Queen’s College have produced another outstanding set of A Level results this year.
Head Teacher, Dr Lorraine Earps, said: "We are particularly pleased with the number of grades awarded at the highest level and with the number of students, who have achieved places at their first-choice university.
"Among them are all of our medical students as well as our Oxbridge candidates."
Dr Earps added: "Our aspiration to focus on the individual and their achievements has once again proved successful.
"The emphasis we place on developing independent learning and thinking has also enabled us to achieve outstanding results in the EPQ (Extended Project Qualification).
"Overall, today's results are testimony to the hard work of the students during their time at Queen's and also the dedication and individual support they receive from our teaching staff."
Two students, who clinched coveted Oxbridge places after their results, have been full of praise for their time at Queen’s.
Eve Davies gained two A* grades and an A to study Biological Sciences at Hertford College, Oxford, while Hugo Smith will study Medicine at Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge, after two A* grades and three A grades.
Hugo said: “I’d like to thank all of the teachers who went above and beyond to help me.”
Eve said: “We felt so supported during our time at Queen’s and this has enabled us to develop our highest potential.”
Hugo added: “The time Queen’s spent developing us as individuals proved invaluable to us during the interview process when they are not just looking at the academic but also the character.”
Hugo was among three aspiring doctors, who each achieved the necessary grades to study medicine at their first-choice university.
Ed Falkingham gained an A* and two A grades and will be going to Plymouth, while Eddy Jobson will be going to Nottingham thanks to one A* and two A grades.
Ed, who has been at Queen’s since Nursery, said he was “ecstatic” with his results while Eddy said he was very pleased and relieved, paying tribute to the support he had received at Queen’s: “I have been here since Reception and thoroughly enjoyed it.”
