Pitsford School pupils celebrate impressive A Level results
Pitsford School pupils celebrated an impressive set of A Level results this year with 46% of all grades awarded A* or A. 23% of Sixth Formers secured three A grades or better.
Proud of its extra-curricular programme and pastoral care within a caring and supportive environment, Pitsford School was delighted that 68% of all grades awarded were A* to B.
54% of pupils attained AAB or higher surpassing last year’s results and reinforcing Pitsford School’s reputation of being one of the highest achieving, co-educational independent schools in Northamptonshire. A combination of small class sizes and specialist teachers makes Pitsford School’s Sixth Form the right choice to achieve excellence at this level.
Top scoring male and female pupils included Alice Cai with 3A*s, 1A and 1B, Jeffrey Zhao with 4As, Cora Zhang with 2A*s, 2As and 1B, Jonathan Martin with 1A* and 2As and Pitsford School Head Boy, James Goldthorpe, with 1A*, 1A and 2B grades.
“I’m delighted with my results. Being part of the Sixth Form at Pitsford School has been a brilliant experience as there’s such a great community spirit,” said Head Boy James Goldthorpe (pictured). 18-year old James, who was a member of the School’s Debating Society, will now study English Literature at Exeter University before embarking on a career in journalism. “Thanks to the teachers at Pitsford School who have been so helpful and supported me along the way,” he added.
Pupils and parents celebrated their A Level success at a champagne reception held in Pitsford Hall within the School’s 26 acres of parkland. “It was great to be able to share this day with our successful pupils, their parents and teachers. I wish them well as they embark on their chosen University course,” commented Mr Toone, Headmaster.
Pitsford School’s next Open Day takes place on Saturday 03 October between 10.30am and 1.00pm. Come along to our Open Day and see where Opportunity, Excellence and Understanding are always on the timetable
