Students at schools across Bushey were celebrating last month after this year’s A-level results were announced.
There were lots of smiles at Bushey Meads School after many students secured places at a number of the country’s top universities including Oxford, UCL, Exeter and Surrey, to name just a few.
Executive principal Jeremy Turner said this year’s results were the school’s best ever. 100 per cent of students achieved a grade at A-level with 76 per cent achieving grade C or above. Mr Turner hailed his students’ outstanding successes.
He commented: “We are once again thrilled and delighted with the outstanding success of our A-level students. The headline figures demonstrate that the school is continuing to provide a high quality education to students in the local area. I would like to congratulate and thank all staff, students and their parents for their continued commitment and ongoing support.”
At Immanuel College (pictured), 51 per cent of all students achieved A*-A grades with a quarter of all students scoring A* and A grades in all A level subjects. Alex Root and Jeremy Schiff will be studying natural sciences at Cambridge while four students will be attending American universities.
Headmaster Gary Griffin said he was very happy.
He commented: “We are delighted with this year’s A-level results at Immanuel College which are even better than last year’s, despite the fact that the examinations have been made more rigorous and demanding as a consequence of government reforms. I would like to congratulate the students – and their teachers – who have worked so hard to achieve these magnificent grades.”
Bushey Academy headteacher Jon Hebblethwaite said he was pleased with this year’s results which built on last year’s success.
He commented: “This shows that again at A-level Bushey Academy students perform in line with other schools nationally. I’m very proud of the students and staff for their hard work over the last two years.”
