Bryanston A2s receive excellent set of results

Bryanston’s departing A2 year group received an excellent set of A level results today, which were awarded following a full return to the examination hall after two years of disruption and school assessed grades.

These results follow on from another set of exceptional IB grades earlier in the summer (full story here).

We are delighted to report that pupils achieved A level results surpassing pre-pandemic levels, with 40% of grades awarded at A or A*, with those top grades coming in a broad range of subjects. Our IB pupils had another superb year, with 66% of grades awarded at 6 or 7. Our IB Diploma pupils received an average score of 37 points, equivalent to A*AA at A level.

Deputy Head Academic Steven Green said: “This has been an unprecedented period of education, with schools managing the impact of the pandemic over the last two years. These grades show how hard our A2 pupils have worked over that time, in the face of new challenges that confronted them. I am delighted for our pupils, and for the whole school community that has supported them.”

Head Richard Jones also congratulated the outgoing A2s, commenting: “This year’s A level and IB results are outstanding and are testament to the hard work and ability of this year group. The results highlight the high academic standards that we have here at Bryanston.

“We strongly believe that by nurturing our pupils to be resilient and encouraging them to be well-balanced, they are more likely to achieve their full potential in life. The calibre of today’s results demonstrates that academic achievement at Bryanston is underpinned with our unique focus on individual personal growth and valuing their journey.”

The paths that Bryanstonians are embarking upon are both broad and far-reaching, with A2s today gaining places at Cambridge, Bristol, Durham, Edinburgh, Exeter, and UCL to name a few. Furthermore, the subjects that these pupils are going on to study are diverse and reflect the breadth of academic opportunity at Bryanston. From Biology, Chemistry and Computer Science to Politics, Business and Product Design, the 2022 cohort will be continuing a tradition of pupils studying a wide range of courses.

Head of Sixth Form James Ralphs commented: “We are very proud of all our pupils no matter what path they are undertaking and wish them all the best for the future.”

Pupils will also be leaving Bryanston to continue their studies at Music Conservatoires, Art Schools and J.P. Morgan Degree apprenticeships, the latter of which emphasises the growing interest in alternative pathways amongst our Sixth Formers. Several A2s will be studying further afield, attending overseas universities including Hospitality courses in Switzerland and various US colleges, truly reflecting the extensive Bryanston community.
