Congratulations to all our A Level students on outstanding results again!
Hereford Cathedral School students celebrated outstanding successes in today’s A Level results. With 23% of all grades achieved being awarded an A*, this marks another year of excellent academic and personal achievements for students at the school.
A third of students secured all A*/A grades, including six who achieved all A* grades. Hereford local Dominic B, Jonathan S and ex-Boy Bishop Orlando T all secured 4 A*s, while three others – Thomas B, Annabel G (pictured below) and Toby L-A – are all celebrating three A* grades.
Jonathan S (pictured below left) will go on to study Maths at Trinity College, Cambridge having also achieved exceptional results in his three STEP Mathematics papers (two at the highest grade ‘S’ and a third at grade 1). Jonathan is looking forward to studying at reputedly the best Maths college in the world."
Dominic B, another Oxbridge success (pictured above right), will go on to study Maths & Computer Science at Oxford, joining Laurence John who has also won a place at Oxford as organ scholar. Laurence joined Hereford Cathedral School from St Mary’s and has spent a year as organ scholar at Hereford Cathedral.
Sophia G (pictured below right), who joined HCS Sixth Form from Fairfield High School, did exceptionally well with two A*s and an A while three of the school’s international students, Adam T, Cristina L and Frank Z achieved five A*s and four As between them.
Overall, the school is impressed with its students’ achievements with 100% grades A*-B in six subjects and particularly strong results in the Arts and traditionally difficult subjects, including Economics, English Literature, Further Maths and Physics.
Headmaster, Paul Smith was very pleased with the results and said: “I am delighted that the hard work of students and staff has resulted in well-deserved A Level grades.
“Our most able students have done as well as any in the country. However, it is often the case that our ‘best’ results are those of more modest grades obtained by students whose aspirations have been exceeded as a result of studying in our Sixth Form. The vast majority of students have made significant progress and should be proud of what they have achieved.”
