STUDENTS at Solihull School are looking forward to a bright future after collecting their A level results.
The independent school saw 120 students sit a total of 362 exams, with 80 per cent of all grades at A* to B and 50 per cent A* or A.
As well as the strong overall results, all students hopeful for Oxbridge entry were successful.
Head David Lloyd was delighted with the students’ success, particularly in such a climate of change.
He said: “I’m extremely proud of all the students, whose hard work and dedication has paid off with excellent results. Their achievements are perhaps all the more notable considering the major changes nationally.
“Our overall results highlight the determination of our students and staff alike, with all subjects grading impressively. Our conversion rate into medicine is also extremely pleasing.”
Significant changes in the structure of A levels across England have seen a move away from coursework and modular exams throughout courses, with most now assessed entirely through exams at the end of a course.
Solihull School will be hosting an open day on Saturday, September 22 from 9.30am until noon. Visit www.solsch.org.uk for furtehr details.
