A Level Results
Year 13 students at the Friary School have been celebrating excellent A-level results. 78% of all entries received grade C or higher, exceeding the highest figure the school had ever achieved before.
A number of students achieved very impressive grades and have gained places at prestigious universities. These include Holly Eggington (A*A*A*AA - Medicine, Oxford), Ola Strzelbicka (A*A*A*A* Modern Languages and European Studies, Bath), Daniel Baldwin (A*A*AA Mathematical Physics, Nottingham), James Burns (A*A*A Medical Science, Leeds), Gabriel Hawley (A*AAA Mathematics, Bristol University), Ben Taylor (A*A*A International Business, Loughborough), Katie Culverwell (AAA Medicine, Manchester), Jessica Long (AAB Medicine, Barts, London), Elliot Nash (AAAB Physics, Nottingham), Helena Cook (A*A*AB Law, UEA), Lizzie Hosier (A*AAB Biochemistry, Sheffield), Amy Jones (AAB English and Creative Writing, Birmingham), Thomas Leedham (A*AAC Mathematics, Nottingham), Raveena Hayer (AAB, Management Studies, Leicester) and Thomas Murphy (A*AB Computer Science, Birmingham).
A particularly pleasing feature of the Friarys results this year was the exceptional performance of a large number of students in the Extended Project Qualification, which is highly valued by universities as it involves independently driven deep research and the completion of a detailed dissertation. 32 Friary students completed the EPQ and over 90% of the entries were awarded A*/A grades. Also of note were the strong performances in Mathematics, Further Mathematics, Computing and BTEC Level 3 Science with over half of students achieving grades A*/A.
Deputy-Headteacher, Ian Rose, said: It is great to see young people enjoying the deserved rewards for their dedication and I have no doubt that they will go on to be successful in the future. Whilst it is natural that the highest grades receive a special mention, there are countless results today that represent excellent progress and all of our students should feel extremely proud of what they have achieved.
In addition to congratulating all the students and wishing them every future success, I would like to thank all the Friary staff for the hard work which has contributed to these results and to parents for their invaluable support for the students and the school.
