A Level Results August 2019

Another very successful year for students at Ralph Allen school. 34% of the grades were A*-A.  63% of grades were A*-B.  84% of the grades were A*-C.

Students have achieved in all areas from English Language, English Literature, Computer Science, Physical Education & BTEC Sport, Photography, Geography, Mathematics, Biology, Modern Foreign Languages, Religious Studies, Psychology, Photography and Sociology.

 Headteacher Andy Greenhough commented, “We all have things on our minds that trouble us from day to day but I’m sure we all remember the night before our examination results! Unfortunately so much can ride on the grades achieved for which so much effort and hard work has been applied over the last two years. I find the work ethic and dedication of our students admirable and I know that we are helping prepare young people for an exciting and evolving world.

I would like to recognise all the hard work from the staff at the school who have supported the students to achieve their results. It is the work behind the scenes that we do not always see. The hours outside of school to make sure that lessons are inspiring and challenging, the marking and feedback, and the general encouragement that we all need. The students, like myself, are really thankful for all the support and guidance they have received. Lastly, I would like to congratulate the Sixth Form team. They support students every day, making sure that the little bumps they encounter along the way are ironed out.

As you can see from our results we have a large number of students who have achieved the highest grades in all subjects but true to our ethos of personal best we would like to recognise all students for their progression over the last two years. Again this is the majority, however the following students have achieved the greatest progress from GCSE to A Levels.

They are:  Michael Adlerstein, Grace Armstrong, Lily Atkinson, Jack Bardzil, Biba Barrett-Stone, Ben Blakemore (Ben will be taking up an apprenticeship with Altran), Christina Collis, Max Davis, Zak Elley, Aimee Grant, Alice Helps, Faye Holland, David Kaplan, Lydia Langdon, Max Penny, Josh Sackett, Ewan Taylor-Smith, Sam Willis, Mazy Wyeth, Poppy Wood.

All the students taking the BTEC Sport course performed incredibly well.   Congratulations to all involved.

Congratulations also to Guy Turner who achieved an apprenticeship with Dyson, Elise Maylor and Heidi White who will be going on to study medicine and our three gap year students who were successful in their Oxford and Cambridge applications, Isaac Hawcock, Jenny Grime & Theo Putler.

Our last thank you goes to the parents, carers and families who have supported the students over their secondary career.

Good luck to all wherever life takes you and do not forget to keep checking in with us along the way!”
