The Royal School is celebrating the A Level success of its final all female Upper Sixth, as the school becomes fully co-educational and joins United Learning in the Autumn term 2019.
More than 50% of all A Level passes by this year’s Upper Sixth were graded A*-B and 80% of all grades were A*-C. There was success right across the curriculum. 100% of grades in Accounting, Art, Chemistry, Chinese, Further Mathematics, Physics and Textiles were at A*-B and 100% of passes in Geography, Mathematics, Music and Psychology were at A*-C.
University entrance is looking particularly strong, with 50% of the Upper Sixth achieving places at Russell Group Universities. As always, our students are going on to study a wide variety of courses, including: Accounting & Finance, Art, Geography, Global Health & Social Medicine, Management, Mathematics & Statistics and Physics.
The school is also delighted that the first co-educational Lower Sixth cohort has enjoyed huge success with their EPQ (Extended Project Qualification). 20% of the year group entered an EPQ this academic year and 100% achieved A*-A grades.
These results reinforce The Royal School’s reputation for strong academic progress, a robust value-added education and high individual achievement.
Royal School Principal, Mrs Anne Lynch, commented: “We are very pleased with these results and very proud of our students and their teachers. These results are the reward for many years of hard work and we are thrilled to see our students progressing to a wide variety of courses at prestigious universities. Many congratulations to one and all.”
