Adcote School was today celebrating another excellent year of A-level results with 47% of the grades awarded achieving A/A* – well above the national average of 36.4%.
The non-selective, independent girls’ school at Little Ness, near Shrewsbury, saw A*/A grades increase by 19%, compared with pre pandemic results from 2019, and nearly 70% (69.8%) of all grades were A* to B.
“We are in awe of our students. After two years of unprecedented disruption, they have achieved amazing results which fly in the face of the national message of falling top grades,” said Headmistress Diane Browne.
“In fact, in comparison with our grades from 2019, we have increased our number of A* grades by 19%, with 47% of our grades being A*/A.
“In a non-selective school, this is an amazing achievement and we are thrilled that we are so comprehensively helping our students to achieve their dreams.
“We’re very proud of all our students who have accessed some very challenging and supremely competitive courses, including Rhiannon Williams who is about to study Evolutionary Biology at Edinburgh University, and Margaret Sun who will study Biomedical Sciences.
“Our scholarship student Marta Nowaka is using her 3 A* grades to study Equine Sciences and Andrea Li will study Economics at Edinburgh, whilst Anna Pang will study Mechanical Engineering.
“We are also thrilled that Mia Dyfnallt is off to Cardiff to study nursing, another extremely competitive course.”
