Derby High School students have, again, achieved impressive A-level grades with a 100% pass rate across all subjects.
A total of 41% of all grades achieved were at A*- A and two thirds of students achieved A* – B grades.
In addition to their A levels, more than a third of students elected to complete an Extended Project Qualification, which universities value highly for the independent skills developed in the process. Exploring a diverse range of challenging topics, 79% of these students achieved an A* – B grade.
Retiring Headteacher, Denise Gould, said: “We are delighted to be celebrating such a fine set of results with our students, once again, in the second year of significant change to the examination system. Students’ hard work, coupled with the expertise of our staff, has ensured well-deserved success.
“In addition, these students have made an outstanding contribution in a host of ways throughout their time with us. These young people will prove themselves to be our outstanding leaders of the future.”
