A Level Success!Posted on: August 15th - 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). 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.
In addition to the significant improvements and progress, individual departments have cause to celebrate as almost all see improved results. 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. Enrolment for Year 12 will take place from 9am on Thursday 22nd August.
