A Level Results 2019
Staff and students at Langley Parks Girls’ School are celebrating the best A-level results in at least 4 years. The excellent results see an increase not only in attainment, but also progress from their individual starting points. 20% of all grades were A*A (a 5% increase from last year) with thirteen students achieving all A*/A or Distinction*/Distinction grades. Nearly 60% were A*- B grades (a 17% increase on last year).
Progress and ALPS score
The progress students made increased by the largest margin since this became a measure and the average grade achieved across the board is now a B.
ALPS score (a measure of students’ progress nationally) is on a 9 point scale, 1 being the highest. This year our overall score is a 2. This tells us that students are achieving better than they would in most other Sixth Form schools across the country. The grade is generated by comparing our students’ performance and progress with all others at state, private, selective and non-selective schools.
In addition to the significant improvements and progress, individual departments have cause to celebrate as almost all see improved results (see link at bottom of page for subject breakdown). Whilst we celebrate the hard work and commitment of all our students, we particularly wish to recognise those with exceptional attainment. Amongst them, our head girl, Bethan who has achieved A*A*A*A* and will be taking up her offer to read Geography at the University of Oxford. Other students with exceptional performance include Mia and Ellie; A*A*AA for Biochemistry at Oxford and A*AA to study History & Politics at Cambridge respectively. Congratulations also go to Kate, who has achieved AAAA, and Anna (A*A*BB) who will both moving on to study Medicine.
Other students who we are incredibly proud of include Louisa (ABB), Florence (ABB), Fyesa (ABC), Sonaali (BBB), Mark (BBC) and Vivian (BBC) for achieving extremely well despite facing some challenging circumstances. The vast majority of those going onto higher education have today been confirmed that they have been accepted into their first choice university.
Our thanks go to staff, students and their families whose combined efforts have enabled the success of the LPGS class of 2019.
