Peter Symonds College Describe Success of A Level Students as “staggering.”
Students at Peter Symonds College are celebrating what appears to be another outstanding year for A Level exam results. The College’s excellent pass rate has been maintained once again at 99% with over a third of the grades awarded being at A* or A.
At A level a total of 490 students achieved at least two A* or A grades, and 275 achieved at least three A* or A grades. Over 300 of the A* grades awarded were in the subjects of Mathematics and Sciences alone.
A Level Success Across Hampshire – Tireless, Commitment, Dedication
The Principal is Stephen Carville: “The tireless hard work, commitment and dedication of our students and staff have clearly paid off: a truly stellar performance by so many young people. These excellent results will be the launchpad to happiness and success. I am immensely proud of these staggering achievements.”
189 students who studied the extended project qualification alongside their A Levels or AS Levels achieved either A* or A grade.
Among the college’s high achievers is Matthew Pawley, formerly of The Clere school, who achieved A* in Economics, Mathematics, Further Mathematics and Physics as well as an A in AS level Chemistry. Matthew is looking forward to studying Mathematics at Cambridge University or Imperial College London.
Jontie Honey and his girlfriend Hannah Mudge celebrated achieving three A* grades each in their A levels and are planning to go to Cambridge University together.
Jontie studied A level Biology, Chemistry and Mathematics as well as AS level English Literature and the extended project qualification, and is planning to study Medicine. Hannah’s subjects included Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics and AS Level History – and she will be studying Natural Sciences.
