Sixth form students at Sandringham continued a long tradition of outstanding performance at A-level achieving record results once again. The majority of results were the highest grades of A*, A and B, with many gaining straight A*s and As. Almost every student celebrated gaining their first choice place from the top 40 universities in the country, with seven Oxbridge successes and three off to study medicine.
Headteacher, Alan Gray, said “These are truly amazing results that demonstrate the hard work and talent of all our senior students. They have achieved their dream of moving on to the next phase of their education. I would like to congratulate all the students and thank the staff at the school for their exceptional teaching”.
Some of the key statistics for this year include:
158 students completed A-levels in 2016.
12% of all grades were at A*
40% of all grades were A*/A
71% of all grades were A*/A/B
Every student passed - there were no failures at any level.
Average total points per entry was 41 (above an average of a grade B and 242 on the old points system)
