Students at Queen Elizabeth Grammar School have once again achieved impressive results at ‘A’ level in 2017. The pass rate was over 98% with well over half of all grades achieved being between A* and B.
There were numerous exceptional individual performances, including Connor Mattinson with A* grades in all subjects and Will Melling, Connie Hurton and Deborah McConkey with two A* and two A grades. There were dozens of others who also achieved outstanding results, with many A*/A grades. Over a fifth of students achieved at least one A*. As a consequence of the excellent results, almost every QEGs student will be taking up a place at their first choice university, with many attending Russell Group destinations. All of the students with Oxbridge offers have been successful.
Headteacher, Mr Buckland said, ‘The students here at QEGS have once again produced an outstanding set of results reflecting their hard work and commitment over the last two years. These outcomes have meant that there have been a lot of very happy faces this morning and our students have been able to move on to the next stage of their education or into employment with confidence and excellent foundations.
I am all the more delighted by the achievements of our students as they need to be considered in the context of the significant changes to the structure and demands of the new examination system. The students have worked very hard to take the challenges in their stride and they should be congratulated for their efforts. It is also a testament to the commitment of the staff that there has been so much success and celebration today. ’
