Sixth Form students at The Abbey are celebrating one of their best ever A-level results performances. It’s been a record achievement, with 92% of entries gaining A*- B and 64% of entries at A*-A.
Maths remains one of the most popular subjects at A-level at The Abbey with 100% achieving grades A*- B. Philosophy was also phenomenally successful with 90% of girls scoring A*-A. This comes after impressive results achieved by Sixth Formers who took the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma earlier this year. Almost half of the girls scored 40 points or more, out of a maximum 45 points, with two girls achieving the full 45 points.
This year, an impressive eight girls gained three or more A* grades. Among these were Eve Monk and Emma Tinn who have both secured their places at Cambridge. Emma will read History and French, while Eve will go on to study Natural Sciences.
Once again, the girls proved that no one route fits all: Amelia Seddon will study Geography and Anthropology at Exeter, Avani Kaura will study Medicine at Imperial College London and Sadhbh Lynch has a place to study Economics at Bristol, while Head Girl Emma Prestedge will be taking a gap year to pursue her acting career. Lottie Orr, a member of Great Britain’s junior rowing squad has been offered a rowing scholarship at the University of California, Berkeley.
Rachel Dent, Head of The Abbey, said: “We are absolutely delighted with our A-level and IB results this year. This is the culmination of years of hard work by students and teachers, who have once again excelled.
“Whether they are accepting a place at a top university, entering the rapidly changing job market, taking up an apprenticeship, or heading off on a gap year, I’m confident that whatever option they pursue, these young women will go on to fulfil their potential.
“These excellent A-level and IB results open up extraordinary opportunities for our students which allow them to make ambitious choices and to flourish in a future of their own making.
“These girls have supported each other and have worked really hard – their success is very well deserved.”
