Congratulations to Bryanston’s departing A2 year group, who today, 17 August 2023, received their A level results - with six out of ten grades awarded the top marks of A*, A or B and 80% securing their first choice of university place, despite the impact of Covid-19. This is in addition to their broad range of extra-curricular achievements.
Richard Jones, Head, commented:
“Congratulations to all the A2 pupils on their academic results this year for both A levels and IB. It is a testament to their hard work but also their resilience, studying through the Covid pandemic. I’m proud of their achievements and look forward to seeing them flourish in their chosen specialisms that range from journalism to architecture, from politics to engineering.”
Deputy Head Academic, Mark Deketelaere, added:
“This year group went into these exams without any formal exam experience, having missed GCSEs two years ago. These grades reflect the effort our A2 pupils put in over that time and I am proud of the way they have approached them, and of the whole school community that has supported them.”
Pupils will also be leaving Bryanston to continue their studies at universities in the UK and overseas, Music Conservatoires and Art Schools, as well as starting a degree apprenticeship at the BBC, which emphasises the growing interest in alternative pathways amongst Sixth Formers.
University places were gained at destinations including Oxford, Imperial, Edinburgh, UCL, Exeter, Bristol and Durham as well as overseas from Harvard, Berkeley, Columbia and Boston in the USA to IE Madrid, ESCP Paris and Amsterdam in Europe.
Commenting on the results, Mark Deketelaere said:
“Our pupils achieved A level results in keeping with pre-pandemic levels, indeed better than our 2019 results. We also had some fantastic individual outcomes for Misha T-B and Ella W who gained four A* grades – those top grades coming in a range of subjects from the sciences and maths to the liberal arts and humanities.”
Bryanston’s A level results (57% of grades awarded at A*, A or B), follow this year’s IB results where pupils achieved an average score of 32 points, surpassing the global average of 30 points.
