It was nerves all round as Sixth Formers at The Haberdashers’ Aske’s Boys’ School received their A-level results. Thankfully it turned out to be a day of celebration on Thursday, August 18, as headmaster Peter Hamilton congratulated every member of the Sixth Form on their outstanding results, with almost 40 per cent of all grades being A* and 78.5 per cent of grades being A* to A. More important are the individual boys’ successes, with most gaining access to their chosen university. Popular destinations for students include Oxford, Cambridge, Imperial College London, UCL, Warwick and Bristol, amongst other Russell Group universities, as well as universities abroad. Peter Hamilton said: “I am delighted for the boys on attaining tremendous A-level results. They have worked incredibly hard and have been rightly rewarded with top grades. We have a track record of achieving excellent results and this year is no different. Well done to all our pupils and staff.” Jordan Bernstein, an Upper Sixth pupil who achieved two A*s and one A, said: “I’m really happy, particularly with obtaining full marks in English. The School as a whole did well with A-levels this year and a good group of my peers will be heading to the University of Oxford with me. I’ll be studying Law at Pembroke College.” Ramandeep Singh, an Upper Sixth pupil who achieved three A*s, added: “The teachers have helped me during my time at the School and I’m very thankful to them. It’s great when hard work really pays off.” These terrific results are once again viewed against a backdrop of superb performances in sports, drama, art and music. Alongside their impressive academic successes, the boys’ engagement in the School’s diverse co-curricular pursuits and extensive leadership opportunities has produced a cohort who are ready to take the next step into becoming future leaders of society. The School congratulates each boy on his achievements and looks forward to hearing the progress that they have made.
