Superb A Level & GCSE Success at QEGS
Students at Queen Elizabeth Grammar School have achieved impressive results at ‘A’ level and GCSE this year. The pass rate at A Level was over 98% with 61% of all grades achieved being between A* and B. Exceptional achievements worthy of special mention include Ewan Clementson with five A*grades, Rebecca Ewbank with four A* and one A grade and Ghazn Khan, Matthew Caton and Victoria Ironmonger with 3 A* and an A grade.
In Year 11, QEGS students have achieved an exceptional set of GCSE results this year. 98% of the 121 students achieved the threshold level of 5 or more grades at A* -C including English and Maths, with the average grade being A-. Outstanding individual performances include the 11 A* grades from Elfreda Baker, 10 A* grades from Joe Abernathy, Nikhil Choudhury, Cameron McDonald and Jake Marshall with either 9 or 8 A* grades from Praharsh Babu, Sophie Bauer, Kerran Cotterell, Katie Feltham, Sarah Ludar-Smith and Anna Martin.
Headteacher, Mr Buckland, said, “This is a tremendous performance from the students. It is testament to their hard work and commitment. It is also confirmation of the dedication of the staff at QEGS who are always willing to put in that extra effort to support the students. I am particularly pleased with the performance at GCSE under the new Progress 8 measure. Our score shows that QEGS students performed at half a grade higher per subject than would be expected based on their Key Stage 2 achievement. In other words, we have added significant value to our students’ outcomes.”
