Students at Adcote School for Girls, near Shrewsbury, Shropshire, are again celebrating an impressive set of A Level results today with 84% of Year 13 students achieving at least one grade A* or A.
Half of all grades awarded were A* to A which is an 8% increase on last year’s results, above pre-pandemic levels and above the national average of 27% issued by the Joint Council for Qualifications today.
An amazing 65% have been accepted for top Russell Group universities. 47% of degree courses chosen cover the STEM subjects of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
Notably, in English Literature and Further Maths students achieved A* to A and in Chemistry 100% of students received A* to B with the national average 53.8%. In Art, students achieved 100% A* to B again well above the national average of 62.6%.
Headmistress Diane Browne said: “We are absolutely thrilled with these results, and delighted for our students who have accessed fantastic courses at such prestigious universities. To increase our percentage of top grades when schools were warned that the number of A*/A grades would be significantly reduced is utterly wonderful, and testimony to the hard work and dedication of our students and teachers.”
