Comparative examination results data 2016
A level exam results August 2016
In 2016 Ralph Allen A-level students have achieved another set of wonderful results. 82% of the grades were A*-C.
Students have excelled in all areas from English Language, English Literature, Health & Social Care to Geography, Mathematics and Biology.
Principal Tim Withers congratulated all students: ‘For me the effort, dedication and resilience shown by students is a credit to themselves and mirrors the dedication of the athletes in the current Olympics. To see anyone strive for their own personal best is always inspiring and I personally strive to create the best environment for the students to achieve this. It is also time to thank all the parents, teachers and everyone who supported the students over the last two years. Whether this support is a few words to keep them on track, bringing a cup of tea and a sandwich or producing resources to inspire. All contribute to the success of the students.
‘I would like to wish everyone the very best for their future careers where they will use not only their well-earned qualifications but also their strength of character and personal qualities to embrace the opportunities that will be before them.’
As always we have a significant number of students continuing to university and Tom Mason who achieved 2A*s and 2As has secured his place at St Anne’s College Oxford to study Computer Science. He is taking a year out to complete a work placement this year before taking up his place.
A number of students have also attained the highest grades at A-level. They are:
Freya Alder, Elia De Matteis, Anna Cooper, Hamish Evans, Bart Scattergood, Emily Skailes, Jacob Elliman, Gemma King and Veronica Kirby-Garton, Maya White, Hannah Macaulay and Sam Mytton.
We would also like to mention some other students who achieved their personal best through effort and dedication. These include:
Chloe Walton whose constant effort and hard work helped her achieve very good grades whilst also producing the sixth form revue show.
Polly Rawlings, Dixie Rowley, Guy Dunford, Ella Mandell-Lynn, Rowan Tyldesley, Harriet Eames and Sarah Letchford have all shown superb levels of effort and have stayed positive and resilient throughout.
A number of students who joined us in year 12 have also achieved excellent results - Daniel Tarr, Freya Howison, Emma Dowty and Katherine Thomas.
Ryan Wynne, Billie Beswick and Flora Miles achieved well in a number of subjects but particularly excelled in Art or Photography where they achieved the highest grades.
Finally a huge well done to all students and staff for all their hard work!
Amazing 2016 GCSE results at Ralph Allen School!

Ralph Allen School is delighted to report that Year 11 students have today received a great set of examination results. 70% of students achieved 5 or more GCSEs at grade C or above including English and Maths. A third of grades were A or A*. Amongst these there were many truly astounding sets of results with 22 students getting 8 or more A/A*s and 3 students getting every grade A* - Manny Campion-Dye, Naomi Buddle and Naomi Johns. Manny said, ‘It was a lot of hard work, especially Art, but I am really happy that I got an A* in that too.’ Naomi Buddle said, ‘I feel really pleased, and would like to say thanks to all the teachers who really helped me.’
John Chantry, Head of School, said, ‘We also want to recognise and congratulate the achievement of all our students, a very great many of whom have achieved grades which they did not think they could get through hard work, effort and resilience. Like many of Team GBs Olympic athletes these students have put in years of hard work and it is wonderful to see how successful they have been and how many personal bests there were.
‘It is always a pleasure to see students progress over their first five years at secondary school as learners and young people and during this time many students have to face considerable challenges.’
Joe Alder achieved 10 A* grades and said, ‘I am very happy and pleased with my results, and looking forward to joining the sixth form now.’

‘We would like to wish all our students the very best as they embark on A Levels or other post 16 courses. Thanks also to the many parents and family members who have done so much to support our students in reaching their goals. Since my son has this year sat GCSEs, I know exactly what this means!’ John Chantry, Head of School
